collections / downton abbey:

January 26, 2012

It rained here a couple days ago, on Monday. So I decided to put on Downtown Abbey in the background while I worked on my computer. Then I got sidetracked (as usual) and started watching Downtown youtube videos and interviews and then I did a huge search for Downtown Abbey graphics.. it was fun ;)

You may have already heard of Downton Abbey -- everyone is talking about it ;) They've been winning awards (well deserved) and some friends actually mentioned it at my period film collection post so I decided to check it out. (thanks Laura, Alyssa, & Tiffany!) I'm so obsessed with this show - love the actors, the costumes, the story. Such great writing.

Here is a round up of some fun images and 'fan' art graphics floating around the web. If you haven't watched Downton Abbey yet, you absolutely must. Light a candle and have a girls night or snuggle up with a loved one. You can watch Downton online at netflix or if you have amazon prime!


Anyone else already watching and loving this new series?
