Another Period Drama Dress Quiz

  This week we will have another dress quiz! I did one of these a few months ago and I always love dress games, so I thought it would be fun to do another. And really, who doesn't love period costumes? : )
  To play, look at the twelve dresses below and try to guess what period drama the dress comes from, what character wears the dress, and the name of the actress. One point will be given for each correctly guessed period drama, one point for naming the character and another for naming the actress. A total of 36 points can be earned.
  Note: I may not be able to post the answers next Friday, as I will be very busy next weekend with Nutcracker performances, but I will try to get them up at least by Sunday.

  Have fun! : )

    BTW, a blogging-friend of mine is running an Austen-themed giveaway right now that you might be interested in. Her blog is newer and only has a few readers, so I'm kind of spreading the word to people who I know like Jane Austen :-) Her blog is called Reading in the Dark, and you can enter the giveaway here.


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
