A Likeness of Sorts
The Jane Austen Extravaganza on Masterpiece Theatre has made my winter. The stellar part is that through some delightful fluke of the cable gods we pick up the Boston, New Hampshire, and Maine affiliates, meaning that I can catch the episodes on multiple days!
Anyhow, there's one part mid-way through "Pride and Prejudice" where Elizabeth is examining a collection of miniatures and I was thinking of that looking at this photo. I've been working on some tiny portrait pendants and the above is one of them. I have a bit of a weakness for making very tiny things, so these necklaces were right up my alley. And speaking of miniatures, Artists and Ancestors is a terrific blog that features miniature portraits.

*Etsy on Martha Stewart's show this Friday
*Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. About an unusual a pairing as you can find, but a delightful listen
