The following article was written by Jenna Holmes, Arts Officer for the Bronte Parsonage Museum, January 2013

Refurbishment in progress: In January and early February the Museum was closed to the public, but behind the scenes we were having the busiest weeks of the year. A team of specialist decorators carried out the first redecorating of the Parsonage in 25 years, with new bespoke wallpapers, paint colours, curtains and painstakingly woven rugs. The project has been a very exciting one, and has taken two years in development, using up-to-date forensic techniques by academics at the University of Lincoln. The Museum also used archive references including Bronte letters, scraps of original wallpaper and watercolours in our collection to find out how the house would have looked when the Brontes lived here. The house now looks much as it did in the 1830s and 40s but also includes some of the features that Charlotte introduced as part of her facelift for the house during the early 1850s (when she spent some of the income she had earned from Jane Eyre, Shirley and Villette).

You will need to visit the Parsonage to see the new scheme in its full glory – and there will probably be a few surprises for those who know the museum well! – but here are a few examples of what we’ve been up to:

In the Dining Room-often the focus of the house because it’s the room in which the sisters’ famous novels were written – we’ve reintroduced Charlotte’s own decorative scheme from the early 1850s, using details from her correspondence. The curtains are still in the process of being specially woven, in crimson, to match Elizabeth Gaskell’s description: ‘The parlour has evidently been refurbished within the last few years….The prevailing colour of the room is crimson…’ Forensic analysis told us this room was papered both before and after the time of Charlotte’s ‘gentrification’, and the paper we have chosen is a contemporary design, in scarlet to match the curtains.

One of the most dramatic changes is in Mr. Bronte’s study, which is now a pretty pale green. Clear evidence existed that this room was papered, and that there were several shades of green used. The panelling for the door was picked out in one shade, and the surrounding areas another. The wallpaper is reproduced from one of the period to match.

We hope that you will come along and visit the Bronte Parsonage Museum to see the final result. The Museum is open every day from 11am -5pm in March. Church Street, Haworth BD22 8DR 01535 642323

Power Reversed-Tarot Card For February 27, 2014

Power Reversed-Description Of The Card: Passive aggression. Insecurity. Loss of personal power. Oppressed by someone else’s power and authority. Using power to manipulate others for personal gain. Feeling powerless.

Power Reversed-Interpretation Of The Card: There is a clear tyrannical influence to this card when it is reversed. The authority this man has when he is upright has turned into oppression and abuse. When this card is reversed it indicates that the ambitions you are seeking will remain unfulfilled. Any status you are hoping to obtain will remain out of reach for a while. The person who is represented by this card reversed in your life at this time, is not someone you can trust. If you are the person who is represented by this card. You being the one in authority. This card is telling you that you are not as strong as you think. It would be in your best interest to stop the tyranny, oppression and abuse. It is time for some self-reflection as to why you are feeling insecure and feel the need to treat those under you this way. If this is you, keep in mind what goes around comes around.

Quote For February 25, 2014 By ~Dalai Lama XIV~

“Whether one is rich or poor, educated or illiterate, religious or non-believing, man or woman, black, white, or brown, we are all the same. Physically, emotionally, and mentally, we are all equal. We all share basic needs for food, shelter, safety, and love. We all aspire to happiness and we all shun suffering. Each of us has hopes, worries, fears, and dreams. Each of us wants the best for our family and loved ones. We all experience pain when we suffer loss and joy when we achieve what we seek. On this fundamental level, religion, ethnicity, culture, and language make no difference.”
— Dalai Lama XIV (Toward a True Kinship of Faiths: How the World’s Religions Can Come Together)

Fertility Reversed-Tarot Card For February 25, 2014

Fertility Reversed-Description Of The Card: Feeling the lack of material resources. Needing more abundance in life. Limitations which are overwhelming. Deprivation or sterility.

Fertility Reversed-Interpretation Of The Card: The Fertility card in a traditional deck is the Empress. She is the ultimate mother figure. Reversed she is way too protective. There may be emotional blackmail and tyranny when this card is reversed. There may be problems with children. But, mostly there is a lack of money and resources. Feeling deprived is common and many limitations that feels so insurmountable. There is a need for more abundance in life. This is not an abundance that is greedy. It is necessary for stability and security. If you are experiencing this lack at this time, remember the wheel of fortune is ever turning. So, what has gone down will come back up again! Ride it out, better days are coming.
