I'd rather be serving Lady Mary

Most of the world must work for a living, in the service of another. Well I can think of worse jobs than serving the lovely Crawley sisters! Like Bob Dylan says, "you got to serve somebody!"

Who would you rather be serving? You'll find more options here.

What's your favorite one-liner from Downton Abbey?

The Dowager Countess, Lady Violet Crawley, has some fabulously witty one-liners in Downton Abbey. Always sharp, revealing her true feelings. I have my favorites, "What is a weekend?" among them. Which ones do you like? I've created some designs that you can customize with your own favorite quote and flaunt it on a t-shirt or mug. Let me know if there is one you like and I can create it custom, just for you.

The Lord of the Manor

There's no question who runs our castle.* And as fans of Downton Abbey, we like to wear our titles loud and proud. I created these graphics for Grantham fans like me. If I close my eyes, I can almost imagine I'm sipping tea in Highclere Castle (depicted above the type). From this mug of course.

*the Lady, of course!

Portrait of a Dowager Countess

The beloved Dowager Countess will forever be remembered for her sharp tongue and quips that unintentionally (or not?) reveal her true thoughts of how things are. This Victorian-style silhouette pays homage to our favorite Downton Abbey matriarch. This would look great on a t-shirt, don't you think?

Downton Abbey fan portraits

My wife and I started watching Downton Abbey last year and couldn't wait for season 2. Inspired by all the shows fascinating storylines and style, I imagined a Grantham family crest that plays on facets of the show.

The fantastic hats from the show's time period replace the traditional helmet at the top, along with a quote form the Dowager Countess, "What is a weekend?" translated into Latin of course!  A life preserver from the Titantic represents the male heir that perished. A maid and valet hold everything together. I created Victorian era paper silhouettes to represent the three Crawley daughters. This led to creating portraits for each family member.

Lastly, I couldn't forget our most favorite Downton Characters, Anna and Mr. Bates.

If you enjoy this Downton-inspired art. check out here or here.

I wonder if Lord grantham's dog drinks from a bowl like this:
