When planning the route of our recent road trip, I lobbied hard to make a pass through Wilmington, DE. Winterthur, the former estate of Henry Francis DuPont in the Brandywine Valley and now a renowned museum and garden, is hosting the Costumes of Downton Abbey exhibit until January 4, 2015. All Downton fans within striking distance will want to make this pilgrimage.
If you decide to visit, I would suggest purchasing general admission tickets ahead of time (they were already sold out for the weekend following our visit). The Costume exhibit is included, but timed tickets are being utilized for crowd control and you will be asked to register for a specific two hour window. The earliest slots were full, but we were able to get a late morning entrance time.
These "downstairs" photos seemed deserving of a link to Weekend Cooking. I'll share some "upstairs" scenes for Wordless Wednesday.
Weekend Cooking, hosted at Beth Fish Reads, is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. You do not have to post on the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog's home page.
