I have a confession – I’m a bit stubborn when it comes to movie and tv recommendations. It’s a little weird, but if everyone is all Ooooohing and Ahhhhhing about a new show I’m a little inclined to skip it. So ridiculous but it’s true.
That was the case with Downton Abbey. I mean, I love pretty much anything England, and of course all the Jane Austen and Bronte movies, but I just wasn’t that interested in the show. Like I said, stubborn. Well recently we had run out of new things to watch so we decided to give it a try and let me say. . . why did I wait so long??
I am completely won over. And so is my husband! We are only about halfway through Season 2 but I just can’t get enough. I want Mary with Matthew and I want Mr. Bates to marry Anna and I want O’Brien to be nice all the time. I know we’ve only just started so don’t give away any spoilers! :) Fortunately I don’t really know anything that happens in the upcoming seasons so it’s all new to us.
Since I’ve completely converted I’ve added a few Downton Abbey things to my Christmas List – and World Market has a huge selection of fun things!
Aren’t they pretty? Everything is so perfect for Holiday Entertaining! I mean – that tea set?! And I have a serious weakness for Lemon Curd – I can’t wait to give that a try.
This year World Market is doing fun giveaways in the store again for Black Friday weekend! Check it out:
- Beginning Friday, 11/28 through Sunday, 11/30 Cost Plus World Market will be giving away an Exclusive Downton Abbey Tea Cup in Gift Box to the first 100 in-store customers. (new design each day) (No purchase necessary, must be 18 years old, one per person.)

Kind of dying over that prize!
Are you a Downton fan? If you are you’ll want to check out all the items in the stores – they are so pretty. And even if you aren’t a fan, they have such a sweet delicate pattern on all the dishes that if you like antique styling you’ll love them!
