Hi everyone, and thanks for stopping by. This marks the very first episode of The Enchant Me Podcast and I’m super excited to be here and to get started.
Before I dive into the premiere, I want to mention that you can read all about how the
podcast came to be here. In a nutshell, each week I’ll be going on a different excursion that is meant to keep the creative juices flowing and to help me live a more creative life.
The first episode takes us back to post-Edwardian England as my mom and I visited a live exhibition of the beloved PBS show, Downton Abbey. We day-tripped to New York City to experience the Downton Abbey: The Exhibition, which is running through September, 2018.
Part museum, part memory lane, and all dramatic enjoyment, the exhibit showcased many
aspects of the show including sets, costumes and behind-the-scenes info and trivia that is sure to delight the many, many fans the show collected over its six year run.
So take a listen to get the full scoop, and below are some photos that I took to accompany the episode. The full episode is right below the photos.
From the top left, clockwise order: the kitchen, the bell board, the formal dining table, Lady Mary’s evening dress, Mrs. Hughes and Mr. Carson’s wedding dress and suit, a selection of dresses including one of the wedding gowns, and Lord Grantham and Henry Talbot’s formal wear.
