Happy New Year! I've just poured myself a fresh cup of coffee and I'm sitting down to share two things I think you just can't miss this week:
1. Season Two of Downton Abbey. Season One left us heartbroken over the Matthew/Lady Mary split and hopeful for Anna/Mr. Bates. Now we'll be able to watch the entire family (both upstairs and down) deal with war, death and love. Season Two premieres January 8th on PBS Masterpiece (check your local listings). If it is not playing near you (it doesn't appear in my local listings), you may be able to watch via your computer or iPad. If you haven't seen the first season, you will definitely want to catch up. All four episodes from Season One are available online (for free) until January 17, 2012 or via NetFlix streaming.
2. Whimsical Snow Gauge. Now that the Christmas decorations are down, things are looking a little sparse around here. I'm looking forward to a blanket of white snow to freshen things up. How cute would this be right behind my living room windows? We've had a few flurries and may get some scattered snow showers. Mama needs this beautiful wrought iron stake to pretty things up around here! Only $69 through Amazon!
Hope you have a wonderful week! The kids are finally back in school and I'm looking forward to getting some crafting done...
