Downton Obsessed...

I am not at all embarrassed to admit
that I am obsessed with 
Downton Abbey!

Downton Abbey is a television show
on PBS. 
It follows the lives of the aristocratic
 Crawley family and their servants. 
And it is set in the fictional Yorkshire 
country estate of Downton Abbey.

Not only is it a very good show, 
but the scenery and the costumes are
nothing but pure inspiration!  

  
This makes me want to run out and buy boots,
tweed and hats! I might have to take a bit of this
look and add it to my fall wardrobe 
(or in my case lack of fall wardrobe I do live in hot South Florida) 



 This is the kitchen....
Don't you just love the copper pots lining the back wall!
And don't even get me started on the long farmhouse table.
Look at the copper molds, how many of those have
you passed up while thrifting? 
 I may have to pick those up next time I see them.

 

The table is set so pretty with just greenery and candles....
oh and I guess lots of crystal, china and silver.
No problem i'll just substitute glass and silver plate,
I think I can manage the china.
Now if only I could find a few footmen to serve.... 



This is my favorite....don't laugh.....but I love
the bells that hang on the board in the servants quarters.

Mind you ,i'm certain that I wouldn't be 
the one ringing the bells back then,
more than likely I would have been 
one of the servants answering it.
But never the less I love the bells!

 
So pretty...the riding outfit on Lady Mary
 Not to mention the beautiful scenery!


Completely obsessed I tell you....we just love to watch this show!
Sweet husband too if you can believe it!


On another note....we are all decorated for Halloween..
and as soon as I can get my camera to work i'll share with 
you this years theme and pictures.

Hope you are all having a spooktacular October!!!!!

I love the post! However, I don't like the part where you say you probably would have been the servant. Seeing as I am your sister it implies I too would have been one, and well I just don't agree hahaha!
