This is gonna be a quickie, 'cause I have a "date" with my dog to watch Nancy Drew: Reporter before bed...
As I said in my Austenitis post, I created a few wallpapers for Emma the other day...

{yup, yup, yup - full size image located on the Graphic Design page}
And last, but decidedly not least...

Mr. Knightley has arrived...on horseback, no less! not in a coach like a gentleman;)
Oh, dear...please pardon me while I swoon...
*looks around to see if Mr. Knightley will magically appear and catch me*
He didn't.  Maybe I'll skip the swooning bit...
Ok, so I love, love, LOVE this adaptation of Emma.  It is hands down the BEST.  In my humble opinion, of course:)
In fact, I just ordered it off of Amazon yesterday.
I was soooo sick of attempting to watch it on YouTube on our very slow computer. 
You know what I'm talking about?
Also, it's an early birthday present for my mum.  
Um, why are you all snickering?
Really, it is.  
Psst!  Next weeks wallpaper just might feature a certain girl detective...
Stay tuned!

Oh, *sure* it is. ;-)
My family watched that version of Emma a while back through NetFlix and enjoyed it very much. I think it's my favorite adaptation yet (although nothing can top Miss Bates and old Mrs. Bates in the Gwynneth Paltrow version--"PORK!" Hehe).
Have you ever seen the BBC miniseries of Mansfield Park (circa 1970's or very early '80's)? One of Fanny's little brothers is played by none other than Johnny Lee Miller...who of course plays Mr. Knightly in the latest Emma. :-)
Your useless trivia for the day. Hee.
God bless,

Um, yes, it is...;D lol.
LOL!  I've only seen the Gwynneth Paltrow version once, but I remember that part;)
I've not seen it (Mansfield Park), but I think I heard that somewhere - how funny!
I love movie/tv trivia:)

Lovely, dear!  I adore those colors together=)
I also adore your Nancy Drew spirit - I only wish I could scrape together some time to participate in all the fun!  I just found out that 4-H archery starts this Sat, on top of everything else!  Not to mention I have to get together archery demonstrations for myself, as well as the girls, as they are required to be given during the FIRST MEETING!  Yikes.
I hope to see you soon - and please pray that I don't loose my sanity,

Thank you, dear!:)
Oh, I wish you could, too!:(
Wait - demonstrations at the first meeting before you've learned anything?!  Maybe I'm just tired, but that doesn't sound right...
Yikes, indeed!
I hope to see you soon, too!  Maybe we can work out something for next week.   Oh, and I can drive up to your place now that the snow is gone, if that would work better for you.
I'm praying for you, dear:)
I love you,

I LOVE these! Thanks so much for sharing! I absolutely L-O-V-E that version of Emma, and Romola Garai has become one of my favorite British actresses. ;)

You're welcome!  I'm glad you like them:)
I've only seen Romola Garai in one other movie (Amazing Grace), but I really like her, too.
