Having been completely inspired by the film adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma, (you know the one with Gwyneth Paltrow from 1996) my very own Emma, who is a bit of a princess like the character in the story, took it upon herself to make a little globe from paper mache as a wedding present for Sarah and Scott. Much like the one that Emma presents to the newly married couple in the film.
We have sort of made it together, bit by bit over the last several months. It has been a fun and successful project. She has made it a Tully's globe, pinpointing all the places in the world where there are members of our family.
She presented it to Sarah and Scott at their wedding last week, and it was very much adored by it's recipients.
It has been very sweet to see her put so much love and attention into something which is a gift for somebody else. It is also nice to see her take such pleasure in the Jane Austen adaptations, especially when she is so fortunate as to have one with her own namesake!
