1. You may recall me mentioning in a previous FTF post that my favorite TV comedy is Parks and Recreation. Imagine how delighted I was to visit completely cauchy this week and see how she translated into embroidery some quotes of our favorite character, Ron Swanson!
Click the link under the photos for all the fun details in her original posts.
The one above is based on this segment. Apparently, Ron and I both love a good vintage typewriter!
2. My friends Kathy and Marie and I are watching the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice (starring Colin Firth) when we get together for breakfast once a month. We're two-thirds of the way through the DVDs.
Kathy and I are very familiar with the story, but Marie was not. Apparently, she could no longer stand the suspense until our next meeting on April 9 and the conclusion of the series. She sent this letter via email the other day, which completely cracked me up! Especially the third paragraph (she had asked for our advice on what color to paint one of her bedrooms).
To my dearest friends, Mrs. P. and Mrs. K, I send this with deepest regards and beseech you to read it with the inflection intended as from one Ms. Elizabeth Bennet.
For I have with liberty undertaken the perusal of one writing entitled Pride and Prejudice and have accomplished the entirety of it from beginning to end. But let me further expound that in my endeavor to obtain aforementioned manuscript, I did most obligingly come across the recording of said work and thus had the satisfaction of having it read to me over a period of not less than eleven and one-half hours filled with unmitigated enjoyment by a most accomplished reader in the person of Ms. Josephine Bailey. My intent, I must confess, was only to lend an ear as far as the enjoyment of the series had brought us thus far, but I could not contain my approbation and eagerness to hear the entire tale and thus was desirous of its conclusion. I now know all, and it is with heightened anticipation that our next engagement can come none too soon!
In another direction entirely, I also wish to impart my immense satisfaction with the advice of Mrs. P. in the selection of a hue for the bedchamber at Marilaine Manor. I deigned to acquiesce to the color suggested by Mrs. P. and have been none the less gratified by said choice. The color is exquisite and blends rapturously from the hall to the chamber. Your suggestion, therefore, was of the utmost satisfaction to me, unlike that given by Mrs. K. which, it pains me to relate, fell far short of anything of which I could have had the advantage.
But to both of you I owe a debt of gratitude for the delight of a novel well read and a color well chosen. Until such time as we can once again engage in each other's most desirous of company, I close with hearty felicitations to all.
3. My third and final favorite this week is a photo posted by Jeni at In Color Order of her bunny George in the basket of her awesome new bike.
Cutest bunny EVER!
Thanks for visiting, and happy Favorite Things Friday!
