Period Drama Challenge Finale!

Old-Fashioned Charm

In January of this year I issued a challenge: pick a number of period drama films and post reviews of them between January 7th and July 7th. 25 of my lovely readers decided to take the challenge. Thus the Period Drama Challenge began.  
You all did such an amazing job reviewing period dramas! Due to busy work schedule I didn't make it to my review goal but many of you went over and above. I really enjoyed seeing your reviews and hearing about interesting period films!
Thanks so much for joining me on this challenge and making it a success! Hopefully this challenge has encouraged you to keep watching and reviewing period dramas!

Thanks for hosting this event Miss Laurie, I very much enjoyed reading all the reviews and learning about new period dramas, but also learning about reviewing. Because there are so many different ways/styles!
