Drooling over Downton Abbey

Are you as thrilled as I am over the new season of Downton Abbey?  It's airing on PBS stations this month, on Sunday evenings.

The acting is wonderful, but the sets!  And the costumes!

I cannot get enough of the clothing -- especially some of the hats.

Like this one, which I think is my favorite of all.

And then there's this one, which, when I was watching the show, was so intriguing that I think I missed the entire scene: it actually looked as if it had a crazy quilt liner! But upon closer inspection, it looks to be more of a plaid, sadly.

If you love a great British story with amazing acting, you must rent Cranford,  a series which I've recently enjoyed, too.  Don't miss the part about the cat eating the lace!  It's understated-ly hilarious!

While Cranford doesn't have the stylish clothing and interiors of Downton, it does boast the handsome young actors you'll know from Jane Austen adaptations -- Mr. Bingley and Willoughby!

Have been absolutely thrilled they did a second season! I put it on DVR so I can watch it twice. I'm just like you, I spend half the time looking at costumes and scenery, then I have to watch again so I can pay attention to the actual plot!
