Penelope Wilton & Maggie Smith filming series 5 of Downton Abbey. (x)

"Her character, Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, is without a doubt one of the best loved character on Downton Abbey. So fans of the period drama will be pleased to see Dame Maggie Smith back in costume while filming scenes for the fifth series in Bampton Village, Oxfordshire on Wednesday. The actress was joined by Penelope Wilton, who plays Isobel Crawley – the mother of the late Matthew, who is known for her amusing relationship with the Dowager."

Notes

The atmosphere in the suite is jolly. Dench, in light-colored jacket and pants, and Smith, in a dark ensemble of similar style, are unfailingly charming. And they’re ready to be entertained. (Jet-lagged, they have been talking to reporters all day.) Smith has the disarming habit of collapsing into Dench’s arms whenever she’s in stitches. In our encounter, this happens often.

bookshelves are actual porn to me. I CANNOT WAIT TO HAVE MORE OF THEM. Looking good. Loving the tower.
I actually need another one, but it’s finding one that fits into the space that I have that’s proving a wee bit tricky. But yeah, I do love the look of bookshelves/cases - you sort of feel more intelligent just for having them, even if, as in my case, you’re not that bright lol.
Notes
Organisation… well it’s sort of getting there (and we’ll just ignore the charger/plug mess to the left). I really do need a room that I can just turn into a library though.
