Downton Abbey all 6 Series Giveaway

 

2016 brought with it the end of my all time favorite TV series "Downton Abbey"! I was so bummed about it ending! I still keep hoping for a Christmas Special but I guess I'll just watch the series over the holidays!

All I wanted for Christmas was the PBS Downton Abbey CD Collection! Well if you wanted it too, now you have a chance to win the entire set for free! All you have to do is follow this blog! In The Boon Docks

You get all 6 Seasons plus the Manners of Downton Abbey! 7 cd's of my favorite series ever.

 

 

They are all so beautiful upstairs but my favorite is the cook! Mrs. Patmore could whip up dinner and give a tongue lashing all at the same time!

 

If you move upstairs my favorite has to be Tom Branson such a handsome young man! Who married the money for real love!

 

Of course it wouldn't have class without the Violet Crawley, the ultimate Grandmama! Always finding ways to avoid a scandal! Can I just say "love her"!

 

 

Back to the giveaway! I'll pick a winner on Christmas Day! I have one set of 7 CDs for someone who enters this giveaway! It is International because I love all of you! Who ever wins through the Rafflecopter I will mail it to you!

Merry Christmas my friends and Happy New Year! If you don't celebrate my holiday but another "Seasons Greetings"! It has been a better year for our household than the year before but still a lot of ups and downs!
