Pride & Prejudice

The love has not been there long, but it is strong... I'm talking about Pride & Prejudice of course!  It really wasn't that long ago that I first read the book - but some of my favorite books were written over 100 years ago, so it of course soon joined the list!
Not long after we watch the 2005 movie version of P&P - an instant favorite with all of us ladies of the house!  We at times went a little crazy watching it so many times, but it is so good and with those kinds of movies, just the costumes can keep me entertained.
So with being a big fan of both the book and movie; the Keira Knightly version to be exact.  I'm sorry, no Colin Firth mentioned here, well, not anymore.  ;-)  I suppose I'm rather bias, being I have never really watched any other version.  But being such a big fan, it was enjoyable to see a BBC documentary on TV about Chatsworth.  Before then I didn't even know it was the "home" of Mr. Darcy but slowly I started to recognize the statue room and hall.  Through that documentary it was neat to see what usually goes on at that gorgeous mansion.  And it is said that Chatsworth was actually Jane Austen's inspiration for Mr. Darcy's home.

 Sadly you won't be able to meet Mr. Darcy or any of the other Pride & Prejudice cast there, but they still have the statue of Mr. Darcy as a souvenir.  Which I thought was neat. :-)

 You can also visit the Groombridge Place, a house with a moat surrounding it and the home of the Bennet family.  But I don't know if you can visit the potato warehouse where the first dance scene was filmed. ;-)

Over all, what a well made classic movie!  One of the must sees if you have not already!  And thank you for letting me rave on about it. ;-)

Blessings <3 and thank you for visiting,
