My Latest Obsession

So many of you who know me well, know that I am a little more than obsessed with anything that is from the UK. Through out my life I have found myself day dreaming of living in a cottage somewhere in the English/Irish countryside. Seeing that my reality falls short of that, I love to live vicariously through books, and movies. My latest addiction has been "Downton Abbey!" Many of you, more than likely follow along on the scrumptious bits of goodness that it is. (If you haven't, then go catch up! It's on Hulu+)  Lately it has captured all of my afternoon "me time" (i.e. Liam's nap time). I have been re-watching some of it, because it's just that good! It has really inspired my work lately on designing a new apron pattern. It isn't finished yet, but it's in the works. There is something so elegant about a woman wearing an apron. The woman on the show dress so elegantly. The costume director for the show does an amazing job. I wish woman dressed like that in these days.....::siggh:: Here are some photos that may just inspire you as well.

  1. I'm also obsessed with Downton. It's funny you should mention wishing people dressed like that, I like in London and sometimes, particularly when I'm in a street with lots of character, I imagine everyone is dress in top hats and petticoats. I'd also love a little cottage one day, probably just for a weekend home, (a bit like the one in 'the holiday')
