I spotted...

... this in Oxford on Sunday morning, and couldn't help but think that she could have written a brilliant blog!

I love the way she is remembered as a Pre-Raphaelite Muse and Embroiderer!

Wonder what Will was like? Great find thanks for sharing. Hope she was both useful and beautiful - she must have been or he wouldn't have had her in his house would he - could be a double meaning in there somewhere. LOL.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! Yes, I know of the Sharrow piano but I don't think it is there any longer! It used to be half way up sharrow vale, near the jag garage.... a piano on the street that people could go up and play! x

I wonder if she ever fancied a change from his colourful style. I can't really imagine her saying "Oh William can't we just have white!"

Lisa said...

The lovely Janey, we have pictures of her in our house.
I bet her blog would have been fascinating. surrounded by all those men with their artistic temperments.

Jo said...

Would love to read her blog. I love stumbling across these blue plaques.

Rosie said...

She'd have had so much to talk about and one would imagine her posts full of wonderful illustrations. Her accounts of life at Kelmscott Manor would have been fascinating:)

Dianne said...

What a lovely tribute - Pre-Raphelite muse.... I'm clicking over to Google images to see if there are any paintings of her.

Karen Roderick said...

I always think it must be lovely to be someone's muse x
