Guess where I'm going...??

Hello dear friends,
So excited...guess where I'm going today.....????
Do you recognise it?
How about a quote...
 "I couldn't have electricity in the house, I wouldn't sleep a wink. All those vapors floating about."
Have you guessed?  I'm sure you have..
Yes Downton Abbey - well actually it is Highclere Castle.  
I'm going away, just today and tomorrow and visiting Oxford and Henley on Thames too.
I promise to take lots of photos.  
Do you remember back in February I managed to photograph some of the beautiful costumes 
from Downton....



Can you tell I'm a huge fan!
Honestly I haven't been this thrilled with a TV production since the adaptation of Brideshead Revisited, 
(I still watch that over and over!)
So please forgive me ...no crafty project today but lots coming up...
Have a wonderful Sunday and if you could just look up at the sky and ask it not to rain please....
Take care friends.

Christine I bet you have a fabulous time rain or shine, but really hope the rains stop for you

I love downtown abbey too, it's brilliant. I have visited Castle Howard where Brideshead was filmed. That is a really nice place and the gardens are stunning,

I love Downton too and Oxford is beautiful. Of course I may be a little biased as I grew up there!! I wish someone would produce some rubber stamps with images of oxford but I've never seen any. Have fun on your trip.

Hi Christine,
I hope you have the most wonderful time. I too am a huge fan of this
programme. I saw these costumes myself at the NEC they were beautiful. I hope you are kind enough to show us more pictures of your visit. Take care Christine,Cheers Jean

Well anyone who is a Downton fan will know that wonderful building anywhere. It is almost at iconic status now isn't it. I am just grateful that the rumour of Maggie Smith leaving was a pack of lies.
I do hope you have a wonderful time. I haven't been to oxford since I was a little girl, but I do recall the area we visited was stunning.
Hugs Linda x
