You'll have to forgive my reference to the nobility. It's in the air. I just came off of a one day marathon of watching the whole current season of the British series Downton Abbey.
If you don't live in London, or you are busy on Sunday night, you can still get it on U-Tube. But watch out! I started in the evening and couldn't stop until the end of the last available episode. I looked up and it was almost dawn!
The show is a compelling and stunningly beautiful "Upstairs, Downstairs" drama. Full of milady this and milady that. I found this thanks to a recent post on the beautiful blog Fleur de Bee. She'll tell you more about it.
And then there is the upcoming royal wedding. People complain about the irrelevance (or worse) of the royal family. But it's like studying mammoth life without having to guess, or mess with carbon dating! Personally, I love visiting living museums.
So yes, milady would enjoy some tea for one, on some creamy English china, with a few vintage linens on the side!
In fact, everything appearing in this production is antique/vintage, with the exception of the luscious quilted placemat by Williams-Sonoma. How else can one afford such oppulence from a bygone (almost) era? . . . Do pour me a cup will you, Mr. Stevens?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Ciao! for now!
(as in Queen)
