Possible Irish Week Event & A Few Other Things

Some lovely events and challenges are taking place now in the blogging world. I encourage you take a look and join in!

Regency Delight ~Jane Austen, etc.~
Miss Melody at Regency Delight is hosting The Lines of Literature Paraphrase Challenge
The challenge is to take quotes of classic literature and rewrite them in modern language, condensing them and hopefully making them a bit funny. Entries are due by March 5th. 
I had a lot of fun yesterday re-writing some quotes that I hope to enter soon!

Yet Another Period Drama Blog
Miss Dashwood at Yet Another Period Drama Blog is hosting an Anne of Green Gables Week from March 11th-17th, celebrating dear Anne Shirley's birthday and everything related to Avonlea and Green Gables! This sounds like a great event for lovers of the spirited red-head and I look forward to following along.  

Miss Elizabeth Bennet has posted the Second Letter in her Period Drama Advice Event at Elegance of Fashion. This time the letter comes from dear Edward Ferrars! I'm very much looking forward to writing an entry letter before the one week entry deadline. 

In other news St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching and I'm planning a few special posts (or maybe a week long series of posts, but very low key) in honor of the day. So expect posts on all things Irish! 

New Poll: In anticipation of that possible Irish event I've put a poll on my sidebar about whether or not you'd be interested in answering a little St. Patrick's Day / Irish tag just for fun. 

Happy Leap Day everyone! :)

Are you planning to participate in any of these events?
