Her Heart Leaped


On Catherine Morland’s first evening at Northanger Abbey, she is drawn to a mysterious cabinet in her bedchamber. Her heart leaps with delight as she opens it and searches for the secrets within. This rosewood and musk scented soap bar is inspired by the rich wood scent that she might have smelled.

Artist’s note: I love leap year and all mathematical phenomena. Naturally I scoured Jane Austen’s novels for any mentions of leaping, and I was delighted with this one! It is especially funny to me because Catherine’s heart is leaping not at romance, but at a successful break-in job, haha!

“With the determined celerity of hope’s last effort, the door suddenly yielded to her hand: her heart leaped with exultation at such a victory, and having thrown open each folding door.” ~Northanger Abbey, by Jane Austen.
