Downton Abbey...

Alright you guys, the Downton Abbey Motion Picture is officially in theatres on the big screen now...have you seen it yet? I have not, but am really looking forward to seeing the new adventures that await the Crawley Family and Downtown Abbey servants...

"Excitement is high at Downton Abbey when the Crawley family learns that King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit. But trouble soon arises when Mrs. Patmore, Daisy and the rest of the servants learn that the king and queen travel with their own chefs and attendants --
setting the stage for an impromptu scheme and other shenanigans."

Not only have I thoroughly enjoyed the Downton Abbey storyline over the years, but I must admit that I have absolutely loved watching the fashions change throughout each of the new seasons.
So many beautiful designs, fabrics, and intricate details during those time periods.

This past winter, I took advantage of being snowed in to watch all six seasons of the show again.
I can honestly say that I enjoyed them just as much as I did the first time through. The Dowager Countess of Grantham is just such a hoot with some of the lines she comes up,
and was just as funny and entertaining the 4th time around (yes, I have watched it that many times now), as she was the first.

If you haven't had the opportunity to watch Downton Abbey yet, or want to do a 'refresh' prior to seeing the motion picture, you can watch all of the seasons here on Amazon Prime Video.
The Masterpiece Classic DVD Boxed Set and Downton Abbey: Complete Collector's Set are also available for purchase from Amazon.

Are any of you planning on a DA Marathon before heading to the theatre for the motion picture? What was your favorite season out of the original series? What time period did you like best in regards to the fashions? Do tell! 💕😊


  1. I have seen about half of the episodes (including the final three) but plan on going this's just all so beautiful! Like Remains of the Day and Enchanted April

    1. I agree, barbara! Such elegance and glamour back then. Let me know what you think of the movie!
