weekly drawing 21th march
This weeks drawing has come from my new found love of the BBC drama Upstairs Downstairs! originally shown in the early 1970s its set during and after the first world war in a large Edwardian house in london and revolves around the lives and dramas of both the wealthy upstairs family and the servants downstairs.
The look of it is BBC period lovelyness, the costumes a just fabulous and the wonderful RP voices are simply divine darling. It all very quite and theres no background music, I have found the few episodes I watched so far just mesmerizing.
I love a good domestic drama and the up tight englishness of this is really setting some crazy bird lady narrtive off in my brain!
I have started making a new doll and now my mission is to dress her 1915 style like a lady from this show. I also love the maids outfits so plan to work on a few maid/nurse dolls.
cheery oh for now old chums
