Blue Weekend!

How about a little Downton Abbey in blue for the weekend? I'm a die hard fan, but weren't the earlier fashions so much prettier?

This lovely image is from the flyleaf of the first book.

I'd love to be heading here for the weekend.
 They'll let you into Highclere Castle if you show up you know. . . .

I think I'll have to settle for a little tea with the English china instead!

Ahhhh beautiful! Love the photos of the artwork-- and I agree, would love to visit Highclere but enjoying a cup of tea with some beautiful things will have to do for me this weekend!

Beautiful post, Jacqueline! Everyone is talking about season 3 of Downton Abbey - I'll have to wait to see it on DVD when it comes out!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

Those hydrangea blossoms are just so pretty, Jacqueline. I love when that violet-blue. And what wonderful Downton images. Here in New England it was certainly cold enough for an entire Elephant-full of tea this weekend!? I hope you kept warm.

The china is gorgeous! We too love Downton Abbey! Thank you for sharing this at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Hope to see your prettiness again on Monday. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
