inspiration monday


                    it's  downton diary time, and one thing about the Crawley family that always inspires me is the fabulous dialogue,  the "friendly banter".....




and the great advice....





given by none other than the sage of wit-and-wisdom, herself!




there's nothing better than a good dose-of-violet to get your week started right!

pitt pens, 6B graphite pencil, waterbrush, uniball signo white gel pen}

Lori! Amen to getting the week started, Violet-style! She is a hoot and I often want to capture her remarks, which are priceless. I LOVE your journal, think I need a dose o'Downton!!!
Hugs and love,

violet is definitely my favorite character. Although I just adore Maggie and everything she is in.

Kim said...

She's my favorite too. Wouldn't it be great to have a Violet in your life...lol. Absolutely love this work.

Julie Steed said...

I love it! She's wonderful, isn't she? I love the comments she makes under her breath...or maybe not so much under. ;)

Margaret said...

Fabulous, as always, Lori! I'm not blogging for a bit, too much going on that I need to get my head around, but I can't miss your inspiration Monday posts :)
My favourite words of wisdom from Violet are "Weekend? What's a weekend?" I think it was in series one. I might have a Downton fest this week and watch all 3 series back to back, bliss
