Christmas in an Austen Novel

I was shopping at Target the other day, and who should I see, but Frank Churchill.Actually it was 'Beach Glam Ken' but I would recognize that face anywhere, and the resemblance to Mr. Weston was unmistakable. I put him in my cart for a while and walked around the store, but then, like Emma realizing that Frank is not the one for her, I put him on the shelf (in the candle section). I've been thinking of using dolls to make some little Christmas vignette About Emma at the Weston's party. As busy as I was with throwing a huge thanksgiving dinner, I haven't had time act on any Jane Austen related whims. Especially when I'm supposed to be shopping for someone else. Then there is the additional fact that Frank wasn't AT the Weston's Party. But who wants to make a Mr. Elton Doll.
