Bright Star

"A thing of Beauty is a joy forever"

I have just seen "Bright Star" the movie about the romantic English poet John Keats and his love for Fanny Brawne
I so enjoyed the movie and the clothes and language, that I had to make this picture.
Set in 1818, Fanny is standing in a field of purple and blue flowers.

I have listed it in my Etsy shop

Cheers and "Happy movie going, should you decide to see it " Marie


  1. The movie touched me in such a profound way it's hard to describe-the fact that he (Keats) was only 25 when he passed is unbelievable to me- I mean how the heck did he write such beautiful things about life at such a young age? And the grief- Fanny was a very brave soul. Your doll is lovely. Oh, and thanks for stopping by :-)

  2. Thanks for stopping by Meadowsweet Cottage! I think Bright Star is probably the most memorable movie I've seen in quite a while. Visually stunning--no wonder you were moved to create Fanny.

  3. Marie, your creative wool work is wonderful! I sent this page to my wife who's a nubie at knitting -- and, oh, didn't you just love the character of Margaret, Fanny's little sister, especially when she said, "My sister has met the author, and she wants to read it [his book] for herself to see if he's an idiot or not." Ha! I knew right then and there that "Toots" and Mr. Keats were going to be fast friends.

    Thanks for visiting my blogsite! I'll get back to you later about the possibility of using one of your images to complement one of my poems.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my new site, your fanny doll is beautiful. I loved Bright Star, I actually wrote a review of it for a local paper. There should be more films like it, and I just adore Keats.

  5. Marie, I just purchased this movie off Amazon a few weeks ago going only by the reviews it received ( and loving the genre) I still haven/t watched it, guess I should! Jeri
