The Crown, Antique Show, and more – Five on Friday

The Crown

Did anyone else start watching The Crown this past weekend? I did! I didn’t binge watch it and finish the whole season like I know a lot of people probably did.  

Have you ever of it? If not, it is about the life of Queen Elizabeth.  

The TV show is on Netflix only and it is also the most expensive TV show ever made!  After seeing the costumes and sets, you will see why!!

If you are a fan of period dramas and are looking to fill your Downton Abbey void, this is for you!

 Apparently the replica wedding dress cost $37,000 to make! 

Hillsborough Antique Show
I had fun strolling the antique show last week.  Here are just a few pictures ( would have taken more, but I was busy browsing and not shooting pictures!) I liked this cat.

I thought this was a good idea for home decorators…. a plain lamp with an antler wrapped around it.

I liked this little vignette.

Pretty Dresses

Sometimes I like to look at pretty dresses and pretend that I have an unlimited budget and that I have somewhere fancy to wear them to. Do you ever do that? If not, dream with me…

Which one would you wear?

Dress 1

Dress 2

Dress 3

Dress 4

Dress 5

Dress 6

Dress 7

Dress 8

Dress 9 (this one is inspired from porcelain!)

Dress 10

I would choose…. Dress 8 I think. Or maybe dress 6. 


Here are my favorite finds from Instagram.

    I dying to start watching The Crown but I have to finish Gilmore Girls first. I only have 10 episodes left. As for the dresses I think 6 and 10 are my favorite. I wish we had a fancy Christmas party to go to this year because I would love to have a reason to buy a fun party dress. Hope you have a great Friday! – Jessica @

    I'd meant to watch The Crown and got sidetracked. Loved the actress who played Anne Boleyn in Wolf Hall. I'm putting TC on my list. Thanks for the reminder! The dresses are lovely!
