Another Time + Place
August 10, 2011


With 4 little la la’s running about I need a little escape from reality from time to time [truthfully, I needed this before the littles  – – I mean, don’t we all?].  My choice of escape is usually, to another time or place, by way of a book or movie.

I mentioned France just the other day but it feels only right to chat about my even longer love of all things English.  I can’t help but daydream of being in the English countryside, sipping on cup of tea and visiting with my dear English friend, Maggie.  There is just always a piece of my heart that feels very at home in England.

Currently, I’m getting my British fix by way of Downton Abbey [a Masterpiece Classic on PBS which you can watch instantly on Netflix]. I’m totally hooked on the lives of both the noble family that inhabit this estate and the servants that run it.  It’s a pretty great escape to another time and another place.  I can assure you that.  [I’m just trying to figure out what I’ll watch once I’m through with this series].  Do you have any favorite ways to escape?  Favorite books?  Favorite movies?

Needing a bit more of a Brit fix?  You can read my other posts on England here.

PS- Today is the last day to enter the Sorting with Style Giveaway.  I’ll announce a winner tomorrow.

ooh you would love Upstairs Downstairs the newest series (it was so good! And very fashionable decor and clothing wise too.)

I wonder if you could just watch it online somewhere though?
