Jane Austen Character Scavenger Hunt - JABA

Old-Fashioned Charm
Jane Austen's birthday week is here and the Jane Austen Birthday Assembly has officially began! There will be posts at Elegance of Fashion, Regency Delight and here at Old-Fashioned Charm throughout the 13th-20th. But now for our first game!
Our love of Jane Austen brought the three of us together through blogging about The Authoress and her amazing characters. We're excited about the other bloggers who have joined us for this special game!
In this Scavenger Hunt you'll be hopping to other Janeite's blogs to find sixteen postage stamp style images of the heroes and heroines in Jane Austen's major novels!


Rules:
  • Hop to the Participating Blogs listen below and search for the 16 Hidden Jane Austen Character Stamps. 
  • Look for the Jane Austen Character Stamps in one of three places on each blog: the Home page or another blog page or on a post with the tag/label "Jane Austen".
  • When you've found some stamps come back and leave a comment saying which stamps you've found and where you found them. You may comment as many times as you wish.
  • The first person to find and correctly place all 16 Hidden Jane Austen Character Stamps will be awarded a prize button. 
  • Winner, runners up and answers will be announced on Thursday, December 20th.
  • If you've hidden one stamp you are still eligible for participating so have fun!
  • Don't let starting late deter you, this game is meant to be excessively diverting!

Stamp Example
The Character Stamps resemble postage stamps, have the JABA logo on them and feature actors from various film adaptations portraying heroes and heroines from Jane Austen's major novels.

The link you left for the Emma Woodhouse stamp was incorrect, you did the Mr. Knightley link twice.

I found Anne Elliot on Ink and Iridescence's Movie Review: Persuasion (post)! I think that only leaves one for me...

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

BatZion, don't worry about commenting frequently.

Kiri Liz, good work but the character's name you mentioned for Yet Another Period Drama Blog was incorrect. So two more to name/find.

Emily Ruth, good work! Six stamps left to find! :)

Rhoswen Fairie Wrose, I've been getting maleware notices too when I go there. I've just been ignoring them and so far my computer has been fine (but then I have a strong Anti-virus program). I'll pass the word on to Little Lady so she knows.

2. Elinor Dashwood stamp on the Elegance of Fashion review page
3. Mr Knightly stamp on the my profile page of In Sunshine and Shadows
4. Emma stamp on the my swell friends page at Lianne Taimenlore
5. Edward Bertram stamp on the home page of Miss Georgiana Darcy
6. Captain Wentworth stamp on the banners page of Old Fashioned Charm
7. Fanny Price stamp on the Happy 225th Birthday to... post on Old Fashioned Charm

14. Edwrd Ferrars stamp on the My Movie list page on Yet Another Period Drama Blog
15. Anne Elliot stamp on the Persuasion movie review on Ink and Iridescence

I never thought that I would say this, but I rather hate Colonel Brandon at the moment, as I cannot find him anywhere, and he is the last stamp I need to find!

Sarah said...

I found him, I found him, I found him... I think?
Right at the bottom of the Sense and Sensibility 2008 review post on Elegance of Fashion!
I'm not sure though if this is the Colonel Brandon stamp though because the picture is not showing properly, but when I click on it, it links back to the official post about the Jane Austen birthday assembly on Old Fashioned Charm like all the other stamps did. It's a wide guess, but it's no where else on the blog!

Congrats! You found all 16 stamps! Good work!

Good work on finding 13 of the stamps! Yeah, Miss Lizzy and I did hide at least one of our's in more difficult places. :)

Scullery Maid,

I believe I found Colonel Brandon at the end of Elegance of Fashion's Review: Sense and Sensibility (2008) post. The link is there connecting the stamp with the JABA Scavenger Hunt, but the image isn't loading for me.

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Kiri Liz,
You were correct on the location of the Colonel Brandon stamp which means you're the second person to find all 16 stamps! Good work!
