A Christmas Present to Me from Me!

While recently reading Lady Carnarvon's blog [which is always a great read], I decided to buy her latest book, At Home at Highclere - Entertaining at the Real Downton Abbey.   It arrived in yesterday's mail.  I can hardly wait until I have time to sit down with it over a cup of tea!

As you can see there's a chapter on Afternoon Tea.

~ Gorgeous Color Photos ~
The Drawing Room where many scenes of Downton Abbey were filmed.

~ The Dining Room ~

The 283-page book is filled with history and lots of great recipes, in addition to the beautiful color photographs.

The book is available at Amazon. 


  1. The perfect gift from you to yourself! Enjoy!

  2. Oh, this one looks right up my alley! I was just thinking the other day how much I miss "Downton Abbey" being on TV. Might have to start watching my DVDs all over again!


Thank you for visiting my blog. If you would like to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
