We now have a new t.v. in the basement. It is our "movie" t.v. and sometimes just a cozy place to end up on a snowy evening. I had been alerted to a new Masterpiece Theatre production by a friend, and remembered that I had indeed taped the upcoming series on the set downstairs.
To my delight, on a dark winter night, on came "Downton Abbey". I'm amassing my collection of butler's bells for sure. I think I actually lived in this era, not likely upstairs, but I would have aspired to.
The Masterpiece Theatre website is worth a look. It has such wonderful programming. I think I'll take a bit of knitting down to the theatre space and hibernate until spring.
