Reblogging Collar City Brownstone: “My Armitagemania Anniversary and BBC ‘North & South’”; aka Falling in Love with Richard Armitage as John Thornton, March 4, 2013 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #373)

Glamour-01RichardArmitageHottestManonMiddleEarthMar0413ranetcropI fell in love with British actor Richard Armitage portraying John Thornton in the BBC’s North&SouthdvdCoverMar0413ranetNorth & South” (originally broadcast in 2004;  and image left)  in February 2010.  My life has been wonderfully enhanced by enjoying more of Mr. Armitage’s (image right) artistic projects and the people I meet who also admire him.

Xenia who blogs at Collar City Brownstone (CCB header image below) is one of the ladies whom I have recently met online because of our mutual admiration for Richard Armitage:

Xenia is feisty and fun and has a wonderful blog about all of her interests–after all, “Home, Love, Life” is her blog title’s sub head.

P.S.  And to remind us again about the timeless beauty of this love story, here is one of my favorite North & South videos by Angela Smith for you to enjoy:

About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11

    Good morning Gratiana!

    Thank you so much for reblogging my post. This is so sweet of you and I am so moved. You and Servetus have been so generous in acknowledging me on your own blogs and I cannot thank you both enough for spreading the love.
    A million hugs!
