Downton Abbey Giveway Two

Today I have three questions for you: Do you like Christmas? Do you like traditional Christmas music? And, are you a fan of the British television series Downton Abbey?

If you said yes to the above, well then, blogging girlfriends, have I got a TREAT for you!

Did you know that Downton Abbey has just released a two-CD set called Christmas at Downton Abbey? It has 45 favourite Christmas classics and features exclusive cast member performances with Elizabeth McGovern (Countess of Grantham) and Julian Ovenden (Charles Blake). Not to mention, Jim Carter (Mr. Carson) who recites 'Twas the Night Before Christmas.

The grand news is that Snowflake and I are giving ONE away in our second Christmas Giveaway! It's sitting on my desk -- having arrived from Amazon last evening -- waiting for the DRAW coming up on Monday, December 8th.  Leave a comment on this post to be entered into the draw.

Giveaway Now Closed

Wishing you glimpses of Christmas in unexpected places,
Brenda and Snowflake


  1. Hi, Brenda...what a fun giveaway. I am anticipating the new season of Downton Abbey, and my hubby watches it with me as well. I love the traditional Christmas music and the Christmas season, with it's hustle and bustle. But I also like some of the new music. The Pentatonix have a really unique sound and do a fabulous rendition of "Mary, did you know?"

    1. Linda, I went to find a video of Pentatonix on youtube. They do have a great sound. And Mary, Did You Know is one of my top favourite 'new' Christmas carols. Thanks for sharing that with us.

  2. Ooh, count me in! Sounds wonderful Brenda!
    I really like the new look of your blog, and just discovered your Advent tab. I had a quick peek at it yesterday, but hopefully can find some time to look at it more closely today.
    I'm wanting to redesign my blog header, too frou-frou-y I think. I like the simpler look of yours.

  3. Oh my. This sounds WONDERFUL! What a great giveaway. Definitely count me in.

  4. Yes to all three questions Brenda! You have come up with a lovely gift for a giveaway and I'd like my name in the draw please.
    Listening to the cast members on the Christmas CD set will help pass the time until we can finally resume watching Downton Abbey in Canada.

  5. Ohhh yes! If I can get to the PC, I'll be sure to put the notice in my sidebar.

  6. Dear Brenda - this sounds like a fabulous give away. I have never watched Downton Abbey but have always wanted to catch up with this series. Loved hearing the music you shared. Have a blessed day. Hugs

  7. Hello Brenda what a fabulous give away for Christmas. I heard a snippet of some of what's on the Cd yesterday on English TV which we get here in France by salalite. it sounds like a lovely gift for a lucky person, hope it's me.

  8. I love your Christmas blogging, Brenda! You've done a beautiful job of creating a place to come and relax and be refreshed!

  9. What a wonderful giveway. I love Downton Abbey and would love to be the winner.

  10. Please enter me in your draw. I love Downton Abbey!

  11. How exciting! Yes...I love Christmas and beautiful Christmas music! And my hubby and I are both HUGE Downton Abbey fans! I would be so thrilled to have this cd! Thanks so much! Hugs, Diane
