Just in case you are wondering how many days until the season premier of the Emmy Award winning series Downton Abbey;111 Days, and 18 hours, as of this evening, but who’s counting? Honestly, we’re counting down the days simply because we have been serious die hard fans of the show since it started. It may be months away for U.S. fans, but “Downton Abbey” returned with its third season to the U.K. airwaves Sunday evening (Sept. 16). Yes, we are a bit jealous. However, to gear up for our season premier on January 6, 2013 we curated a few Vintage Victorian era pieces in an effort to get you inspired and excited for the big show too!
