The JASNA AGM Photos ~ Finally!

Well, here are a few pictures finally from the Philadelphia AGM – too many shots from far away, too many with not enough light, too many with too much movement – but I hope they will at least convey some of the fun had by all!

A few shots at Winterthur [I was amazed that you were allowed to take photographs! – but I bought the guidebook anyway…]]

  1. Drooooooool! These are great pictures and I lurve the action photos of the promenade! Such eye candy! You did a great job… wish I lived closer. Sigh…..

    And those children are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!

  2. Deb – I just found these pictures while googling “Tilney” – apparently the disinvited General set off the googlebot!

    Well thank you for sharing my adorable little Mr Darcy – this year will see the debut of my second (and although his name is Charles, I’m not sure he’ll be as “amiable” as our Dear Bingley,) and Beth’s first little girl! :) Hopefully this year we’ll remember to wait for the end of the promenade, to avoid the paparazzi traffic jam that occurred in PA!!

    :D

    • Hi Amy! glad that you finally saw these – and congratulations on your new baby! [do you call him Charlie?] Look forward to seeing all of you in Portland, where mystery, mayhem and muslin will be the order of the day!
      Best to you all,
      Deb

      • Yes, we call him Charlie! :) His name is fitting, I suppose, since Colin has claimed the “Darcy” title. Charlie can be his young protege Bingley.

        Oh these boys will hate me when they grow up!! hehe

        Can’t wait for Portland either, see you there!

        -Amy
