One last hurrah

img_3965Downton Abbey’s not over…yet. Only hours to go until the U.S. broadcast of the final episode EVER, and I’ve been slaving away in the social media kitchen all day cooking up lovely treats to savor this series since there won’t be anymore ever. [sobs quietly into her delicately embroidered monogrammed hanky]

Things to know:

I’ve set up an event on my Facebook page, and YOU’RE INVITED!

Fun fan things have been posted on all my social media channels today — have you followed me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter? Please do! (I only accept requests on my Instagram account. I don’t allow solicitors or spam-bots to follow me there.)

After my final live-tweeting of Downton Abbey to ever happen on this earth [more sobbing], join Elizabeth and I for a farewell to Downton episode of Picture Shows & Petticoats. The Google Hangouts link will be provided on Twitter at the end of the broadcast tonight.

Fix loads of tea and scones, adjust that tiara, and I’ll see you very, very soon.

Your friend in the impending Downtonpocalypse,

Jennifer

‘Picture Shows & Petticoats’ DAs5e9 – ‘If you’re really the bigger person, you’re gonna act like it’

10 Mar

Apologies that there are only two episodes of Picture Shows & Petticoats for Downton Abbey season 5. This episode covers our big U.S. finale…the UK Christmas special. It features an appearance by a cuckoo, my dog’s audition for a role on our show, and a lot of giggling over Matthew Goode.

If you’re not following us on Twitter @pspetticoats, you’re really missing out. That’s where the real action heats up during Sunday night Downton broadcasts.

And while you’re following, don’t forget to follow us on Pinterest as well. We don’t have a PS&P user account there — it’s a shared board that Elizabeth and I post to for your period-show pleasure.

Happy OETA Day

28 Apr

Today was OETA’s annual day at the state capitol, and I’m so pleased I was able to attend for the first time with Elizabeth.  The OETA staff was extremely welcoming and gracious.  If you’re not following them on both tv stations and social media, you’re missing out!  There were so many children who showed up to hang out with the OETA Kids characters, but there was plenty other fun for grown-up fans like us.  We love and support our local PBS!
