Many around the blogosphere have posted a photo collage of the year past. I thought it was an enjoyable way to look back on the many things I have crocheted and crafted at a glance.
Here is the first of four parts on some of my crocheting and crafting in 2013.
For the past two weeks I have been watching “Upstairs Downstairs” (on my Kindle, no charge, with a Prime account). “Upstairs Downstairs” was a TV series from 1971-1975 about a wealthy aristocratic family and their servants at a London Townhouse on 165 Eaton Place.
The series stands as a document of the social and technological changes that occurred between 1903 and 1930.
The stage was 165 Eaton Place in London’s fashionable district, the characters the family of Sir Richard and Lady Marjorie Bellamy, and the hierarchy of servants that managed their household. From Mr. Hudson the butler and Mrs. Bridges the housekeeper/cook through Rose, Daisy, and Edward, upper level house staff down to Ruby the kitchen maid, audiences knew the lives of those who inhabited the townhouse.
In this series (filmed from 1971-1975) thirty years of history, political upheaval, and social change, were presented in stories that showed the effects on all the characters.
It’s taking me a long time to get through the series as it has 68, approximately and hour-long, episodes. However, I am so enjoying watching this series that it will be sad when it ends.
“It seems to be tea time.”
“I’ll just ring for Hudson.”
