Ep. 101: Downton Abbey: The Exhibition

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 theΒ 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.
