  1. Hi Jacqueline,
    What a beautiful house Harewood House is. I paid a visit there the first time I ever came to
    England. I always remember the beautiful faux curtain drapes above the curtains in one of the State Rooms. They were dark blue and I thought they were real until I read that they were carved out of wood. Quite amazing.

    BTW I really love and enjoyed looking at
    the Jane Austen Fashions. What a beautiful collection of prints. What a fascinating time in history. - Sandra.
