For all us Downton Abby lovers,,, you now can buy D.A. Teas and jams... at your favorite World Market stores or go on-line and shop.




I think there is a line of Scones mix and jams as well...

Love it! I went to the exhibit when it was in NYC and bought the tea. I have found it since then twice, but hard to find, so this is great. The teas are wonderful!

Grace---I would like to know if this is geared toward the rich or the servants---I would surely be a servant---if it favors servants I will watch it. All I know is people I know were all making scones and loving it. Would I? I don't favor the upper class as I have always known holler dwellers---and the funny thing is I think we have more fun than the well to do. I will take your decision---would Holler Girl Barb like Downton Abbey.???

HG56,, it forcus' on the lives of the Upstairs (rich) and the Downstairs (servants),, kind of like 2 different worlds with each ones own story.....
But in the course of the 2 separate worlds it is tied together as both intertwine...
If you can access PBS,, Downton Abby is aired at 8pm on Friday nights.. but your PBS local channel may air it on a different day and time.
Hope you can access it...

As for my advice??? maybe yes,, maybe no,,, but I am sure there are some secrete closet watchers out there! lolol!
And if for no other reason, watching D.A. will give you an excuse to drink tea and snack on scones or chocolate chip cookies or even OreOs!

Oh, and I think you will luv Daisy & Mrs Patmore...

Grace---I am sure I would like it. Gonna try it. Because I truly do understand both worlds. I work for a semi-rich friend---he was always rich and I was always poor---snotty to me, but I learned to love his mom. So I do understand the upstairs and downstairs thing---cause I always knew the goings on of both floors. The only thing funny now is that my rich friend might go to jail for forcing his rich aunt to change her will to favor him. All my life I have known that poor people have more fun---not blondes---and remember brunettes have more fun because they remember it the next day. And as we all know---the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. And in my life---most of us down stairs thought the people upstairs were stupid.

Guess What Grace? My hubby did what yours did and volunteered to go with me to Downton Abbey, so I wouldn't have to go alone! I was so touched
because he hates any BBC Shows or anyone with a strong Foreign Accent. We went yesterday and I LOVED IT!! Larry didn't fall asleep and he wasn't
too terribly bored and I was happy to have him by my side. He knows that because I am an Extrovert that I don't like to do anything ALONE. I like to
share my experiences with someone. So, he is on My Sweetheart List for awhile. I told him he really scored points with me. He laughed! But I was
serious. I was sharing this with my friends at Bible Study and everyone said, "I want to go see it too, will you go if we get a group together??? So,
we have 5 or 6 Ladies going. We are going to check at The Coast and see if anyone has it playing there...as our Retreat is just a week away.And if not we will go once we get back to Vancouver. I would Love to see it again!

Love, Hugs, and Joy,
Peggy

Set it up to tape! Think I will love it! PS---as for rich friends---I just found out my rich friend got four hundred thousand dollars sneaked out of his rich aunts money and he blew it all in three years----am I poor or what and don't this sound a bit much. And he gets no money from the will because he stole money from her. Glory be to God---but he had nerve to be mad because he was taken off the will and got no more ,And that is why I don't like rich pe0ple---they can never get enough and he has nothing to show for the money----and I as a peasant worker sure didn't get a raise or even a bonus for Christmas. Loving being poor in the holler and lovin the natural life. I am an old hippie from the seventies---although I never got to live that life--- but I absorbed their ideas.

HG56,, I truly believe we 'get' what we 'give'.. I would rather have a basket full of love and kindness then a truck load of greed and money.

I watched Downton Abby when it was on PBS for 6 years and loved every moment. Then I purchased the CD album and have enjoyed watching it again. Friday night we are going to the movie and I can't wait!! I love this era and history of both Europe and the US.

Had to drive into town today, hubby needed to go to 'Home Desperate' (Home Depot) and I needed to hit the fabric store...
So while in town, I popped into the 'Cost Plus-World Market'.. and they only had 2 tins of the Downton Abby Tea... The clerk said the tins literally flew off the shelves!! So I bought a bottle of Sake' instead!... yes, I am that odd duck that likes it...
Hopefully the store will have another shipment in by next week...

Grace...I saw you had snow again! I think you are in for one of those Terribly LONG WINTERS in Spokane.
I remember that sometimes we had Snow on The Ground for 5 months. Ugh!!!!

Sherone...that was a Spoiler Alert for those who have not yet seen it. Maybe you can go back in and change that in your
post!! I am glad you loved the Movie!!! And I'm with you...each Character has become like Family! I hope they make more
Movies too. They easily could...we will just have to wait and see.

Love and Hugs,
Peggy

I saw a Downton Abbey cookbook at World Market but didn't feel like paying the $42. they were asking for it. When we got home from shopping I looked it up on Amazon and bought it for $22. Actually a nice cookbook. We tried one of the "downstairs" recipes for dinner and it was good. Need to try an "upstairs" recipe next.
There are two cookbooks, one official and one unofficial. I got the official one as it was reviewed better..
