Austen in Animal Prints

Denise in Texas

Lurking around our Austen Family Album Flickr page has provided some weekly drama.

We can thank Denise in Texas for much of it. What will she think of next?

She has an animal print theme going here.

See the Flickr page of Denise in Texas here:

Now the suspense is to see what her plans for setting are.

You may think that Jane Austen in a leopard-skin pillbox hat
is an anachronism 

but they had fake animal prints in Jane Austen's England.

American Textile History Museum
