18 Awesome Etsy Odes to Downton Abbey

It has begun: the return of Downton Abbey fever. And for those of you who have this fever and happen to also be parents, we know the deal. This is for the moms who steal away an hour after their children have gone to sleep to travel back to 1920s England and secretly enjoy the high-end hi-jinx of the the Crawley clan, their suitors, and their staff. Here is the data to support my personal observation on Downton Abbey fans: According to PBS’s figures from 2012, their largest audience is women ages 35 to 49 prime mommy age.

To celebrate the return of the Downton Abbey gang in their third season, we have compiled an eclectic collection of awesome Etsy odes to Downton Abbey. And really, who doesn’t need a portrait of Maggie Smith as a hairless cat in all her finery on the wall?
