A Tribute to Downton Abbey
Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a wonderful and restful weekend. My husband and I finished putting all the Christmas decorations away. We even took time to organize it all. It was a very productive day for sure. And now, I am getting ready for Season 3 of Downton Abbey which starts tonight. I am going to be glued to the television for sure. Are any of you fans? I can't get enough of this masterpiece.. The wait is almost over for us U.S. viewers eager for its return. This show is a must for all romantics at heart. It it beautifully written and just exquisite.
The series is set in the fictional Yorkshire county estate of Downton Abbey and depicts the lives of an aristocratic family, The Crawley's and their servants, in the Edwardian and post-Edwardian Era with great events in history having an effect on their lives and on the British social hierarchy. The costumes and settings are stunning...It is like reading a great historical and romantic novel. We get to, at least for an hour, go back in time and re-visit such a lovely and genteel time.
So in anticipation of my favorite show, I paid a little tribute by putting together my version of return to loveliness and shared a bit of tea, sconce and muffins with my husband this morning and a lovely and elegant table setting that I put together this afternoon.
