Ladies downton

While enjoying Downton Abbey music (a youtube play list), please take a look at the wall of quotes.

Of course we have a tea with finger sandwiches, roasted veggie salad, brie baked in lavender honey, chocolates and Mrs. Patmore raspberry meringue pudding (mine is a cheaters version; pre-made meringues, homemade whipped cream and frozen raspberries layered).

We had fun picking our aristocratic name game!

Sweet memories were made, I think my mother loved her birthday tea. I wish I was not sick and could have done a more elaborate tea but the love is the most important thing. Thank you for letting me share our Downton Abbey birthday tea with you xox

You went to a lot of trouble for this and it paid off. A HUGE success. Such a lovely thing to do for Lady Linda! Nancy

I'm a follower of your Mom's and this was a wonderful birthday celebration you gave her. What fun, and the food looks delicious.



Wow -- that spread looks awesome! It looks like you guys had a great time -- Very, Very Clever!!!


Oh, I just love it! April is my month to host our cooking group, and I have already told them that the theme is Downton Abbey - now I have some more ideas!


I'll never forget driving up and seeing you all standing outside in a row. Clarice was there too but didn't want her picture taken. The photos turned out great. I don't see how you could have done much more, it was perfect. Love you and thanks. Thanks everyone else for the birthday wishes, it's actually tomorrow me and Abe.

How cute and clever! I love that scalloped plate! Happy Birthday to Lady Linda! :-) I think we should have all been given the first name of "Lady" don't you think? Then I could be known as Lady Cathy (alas, my father did not name me Catherine and so I shall go to my grave with a little girl's wonder I've never felt like I've grown up, which I think, at my age, I'm finally beginning to appreciate) :-)


I'm sure that was such fun! I love all the quotes you collected.


What fun! Happy Birthday Linda!!!

For consideration to the wall of quotes I'd like to nominate two from last night's episode "Have you changed your pills?" Mrs. Crowley to Dowager Countess and "put your knife back in the"


Clarice absolutely wonderful!
Happy Birthday Linda!
Great job girls!
