Downton. Oooooooh Downton. I'm so late to the party. I'm the girl who has had a few shots while still walking through the door to be sure she can catch up. My coat is off, my shoes have been left in the kitchen, and my dignity was lost somewhere between kissing the host's spouse and spilling a martini on her shoes. I'm a mess, it's rushed but I am here and I am loving it.
I purchased seasons one and two on DVD Saturday evening with vouchers from Christmas. Everyone had been talking about Lady Mary and The Countess Dowager. Even my mother who knows nothing more than what is in her high-ball glass watched Downton Abbey.
I ache with Edith, I cheer on Sybil, and I smirk with Mary. Thomas and O'Brien deserve to be locked in a dark dungeon, and I want to give Daisy a big hug.
In honour of Downton, I've put together a treasury of Edwardian items I could see on my favourite aristocratic family.
Enjoy. (And be sure not to post any season two spoilers -- I start that DVD tomorrow!)
