Hey, all! Hope everyone had a nice long President's weekend holiday. (I know I did) :-)
Let's see. I have so much to say and so little space...
First, this week's Friday Favorites:
I kept hearing about this show everywhere: blogs, FB, twitter, writing forums, etc... Sheesh, I HAD no choice but to give this show a shot. So, I downloaded season one to my Netflix and yada-yada-yada...
I watched all of it in less than three days. (I know. No comments please)
I love all that Masterpiece theater stuff anyway, but this show is rich in characters, setting, style, and history. I also really enjoy how a circumstance happens and the viewer is shown how it affects everyone including the servants. I was sucked up from the beginning!
Check it out. More info HERE.
Downton Abbey takes place around the 1916, which is kind of funny because, I spent all yesterday looking for 1920's style clothing.
Ha! There's something you don't write on a blog post everyday. :-)
The hubby and I have dinner with neighborhood friends once a month. Each couple who hosts must decide on a "theme" and they cook the main entree and all the other couples supply the alcohol, dessert, apps, and sides. But it all has to go with the theme.
This month's theme is a 1920's Speakeasy--dress-up strongly suggested
So the hubby and I ended up at a consignment shop. He bought a cool suit vest and I bought a white boa, long white clothes and the cutest little hat. (Pictures to come)
That's it for me.
So tell me, have you watched Downton Abbey yet?
Have you ever been to a Speakeasy party?
