Downton Abbey Finds: Season 2 The Christmas Special

Love the Christmas Special. So pretty! So many beautiful moments. From the opening scene trimming the tree to the closing scene kissing in the snow. Lovely.

Edith goes to visit Sir Anthony at his house. Love that house! Smaller than Downton but with striking proportions.

There is a shooting party and Mary accompanies Matthew Crawley as well as her fiance who are rather aggressive at this point. Mary has on a great had and her coat has a lovely collar.

Later Mary has on another coat with another awesome collar.

Downton Abbey Finds: Season 2 Episode 8

We see some more of my favorite room, the Library. It’s not nearly as masculine as it looks in the details.

The rug is fabulous.

Lavinia is still in the picture though she falls ill this episode. She is looking truly beautiful in this high-waisted skirt and blouse. I love the cuff of the shirt and the rouching at the top of the skirt. Lavinia is the strawberry blond for those of you unfortunate enough to have never seen the show.

Before Lady Cora catches the spanish flu later in the episode, she is in this wild evening dress. It’s not quite my style but it was different enough for me to take note.

Downton Abbey Finds: Season 2 Episode 6

We see 2 new beautiful places in this episode. First, the house that Sir Richard Carlisle buys when he is engaged to Mary. We don’t see much of it but this grand entry is plenty enough. I’ll take one!

We also see some ruins in the garden’s at Downton. They are quite cool and it’s a shame we can’t see more of them.

Downton Abbey Finds: Season 2 Episode 5

If you haven’t heard, the 4th season ran from mid September to mid November. It will be airing on PBS in the US starting on January 5, 2014. I must say, the roaring 20s are awesome for period cinema. The costumes are beautiful, the drama is scandalous, and I can’t wait for everyone to see it so I can dish on all the details! Here’s a trailer for season 4 to get you excited about it!


Back to season 2 episode 5. Matthew and William come back from the war. Matthew is paralyzed, William marries Daisy on his deathbed. It’s a tear-jerker episode to be sure.

Mary enlists the aid of Sir Richard to stop her story from coming out and she agrees to marry him with a shake of her beautifully gloved hand. Look at how tiny her hands are and I love those gloves. They fit perfectly which mine never do – I have dangerously long fingers.

Mrs. Hughes sneaks food to the former maid Ethel and her illigitimate boy and has an adorable scarf on under her coat. I love the way she is wearing the scarf with just a bit of the pattern showing. Mrs. Hughes has more fashion sense than she lets herself believe. I’m always finding something of hers that is downright lovely.

and finally, perhaps my most favorite thing to ever discover in Downton Abbey, this card catalog built into the library. Swoon!

cardcatalog

It’s actually full of card catalog cards! I remember those days with the cards. It kind of makes me sad that my children will never have to learn to use a card catalog but at the same time, I’m glad I’ll never actually have to use one myself!

I hope we get to see more library details in the future. They are almost always my favorite!
