Jane Austen and Mr. Darcy

 A couple of weeks ago hubby and I attended the Jane Austen tea in Charleston.
There are several old churches next to the hall where the tea was held.

 A beautiful spray of flowers graced a table filled...
with delicacies of all kinds.

 Guests were welcomed in Regency style.
 Hubby, aka Mr. Darcy, looked on as announcements were shared about the day's event.
Mr. Darcy enjoyed some of the goodies.
(Hmmm, kinda looks like a waitor:).
Me with some of the Janeites.
A graveyard sits between the church and Gage Hall.
A glimpse out the window shows a garden of tombstones.
After tea and a sumptuous array of desserts and sandwiches hubby and I shared a comical look at how Jane might have viewed today's world and the dating tips she may have shared.
It was a lovely day.
This past weekend was the reenactment at River's Bridge with a ladies tea at an old B&B.
For more about that event visit
