Downton Abbey Inspired Valentine Vignette {and More Free Printables!}

For my cafe shelves this Valentine's Day, I was going for classic romance.  Sparkling crystal, gilded accents, and a just a hint of English aristocracy.  And when it was all done, I realized what I had wanted was Downton Abbey.  

Tea and cookies, anyone?

And I realize this might be very American of me, but I also have some free Valentine printables  for you, if you are so inclined.  

Download the small ones here.

And download the large heart here.

Use these to make little buntings...

Or for adding a sweet message to your Valentine treats...

Lady Violet is my favorite.  Who's yours?

Linking with a few of these fine sites.



  1. What an awesome blog post - inspiring pictures, free printable, and ending with Lady Violet and one of her marvelous sayings! Every detail is perfect! I think this makes me want more of Downton Abbey as well!

  2. Upstairs, Mary and downstairs, Mr. Carson. I love that silver pot with flowers on the table! Now, I'm off for a spot of tea.

  3. Too sweet!.. I love it all!.. Thank you for sharing the printables!


  4. I just can't get enough of that show. We just started watching reruns a few weeks ago and now we are watching Season 3. I'm in awe!

  5. Thanks for sharing the printables. Love all your pretty vignettes!

  6. I love Lady Violet too. My favorite line of hers was after saying something mean to Isobel Crawley, Isobel says that she will take it as a complement and Lady Violet looks at her and says, "Oh, I must have said it wrong."

  7. Oh my gosh, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your cafe shelves!!
