Violet and Igor

Happy Friday, my friends. I came upon this lovely video and I had to share with all of you.

I'm a romantic by nature, which I'm sure you can tell by reading my blog. One of my favorite story lines on season five of Downton Abbey was between Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham (Maggie Smith) and Prince Igor Kuragin (Rade Sherbedgia). It revealed a whole new side of Violet to the audience. Why should love have an age limit? If you haven't seen Season Five, then stop reading now. Don't watch the video.

I was rooting for Violet and her Prince. Sigh, somethings are not meant to be. Did you hear season six will be the last? I think it's best to end a series on a high note. Perhaps I can still hope for the cranky Princess dying and Prince Igor comes back for his Violet in the last season.

P.S. My last name Graham is a scottish surname which is dervived from the english place name Grantham!

Ah sweet! I haven't seen this yet so have not spoiled the surprise. I hope Violet gets her man in the end!

Oh, that is sweet! I love Lady Violet! Although, I've not been watching Downtown much, since season 3. I was so sad when Matthew's character was killed off, and some of the storylines have been a little convoluted. Still, super-stylish show! I've been offline some days... life, you know... ;o) Wishing you & yours a HAPPY SPRING, Shell ((HUGS))

Oh how I love Downton! I am so sad this will be the last season coming up next year!
