Today: I've got a fabulous post prepared for you but it is going to have to wait until tonight or tomorrow. Ahhhh Saturdays, I love them ever so much! Today, however, is still the focus for now. I must get through the work day and then on to see this tonight:
I'm ever so excited about this. If you know me, you know that the reason has entirely to do with this place:
Chatsworth is one of the homes I studied while at the University of York and I have to be honest with you, from pictures, when I first began researching it, I abhorred this home. Ghastly overdone I thought it was. Until, that fateful day (insert swoon here) where our bus travelled to Derbyshire and at the moment we crossed the bridge to enter, I instantly fell in love like I never had before. Hello! - the windows are trimmed in GOLD! How could I not love it?
I did try and read the book that the film is based on this summer, unfortunately I didn't stick with it long enough to get to the good stuff (i.e. the part where the Duchess aka Georgiana Spencer Cavendish's husband starts having an affair with her bff) so I was bored to tears. I will finish it eventually one day. For now though, I'll have to settle on the film. Will let you know what I think, as always!
Note: I would be even more excited if the film's producers had chosen this Fiennes bro. to play the Duke:
In the mean time, check out this blog for more about the house and this lovely lady:
See ya'll tomorrow!
