For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
- Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

So let's begin..

A: Esther Haase (Germany)
Vanity Fair Italy | Garden
genre: fashion, editorial, portraiture, and campaign photography

R: Emma, Mr. Knightley and Chili-Slaw Dogs (by Mary Jane Hathaway)
For those of you who love Jane Austen fan-fiction and modern day adaptations, this is one of the best with perfect portions of angst and comedy.

T: Ever After (1998)
Ever After is a great adaptation of the classic Cinderella story. Anjelica Huston is fabulous as the Evil Step-Mother and Dougray Scott sure had me and my school friends swooning...

Rating: PG-13 for momentary strong language.

Jane Austen is a fav - keep rereading. Never read any fan fiction though. So why Hathaway's name sounds so familiar is a complete mystery:)
