For Downton Abbeys Fantastic Cook, Mrs Patmore...

Our first Lovehart Christmas present is for one of my favorite Downton Abbey characters, Lesley Nicol Mrs. Patmore.  I like to think she would go for something quite unfussy using very classy vintage fonts & cutlery straight from the Downton dining table (upstairs of course!) 


Nicol grew up near Manchester, the daughter of an amateur-actress mother and a GP father, and attended Guildhall Drama School. What I love most is some of her jaw dropping one liners, we all need a few of these up our sleeve. Especially recently as she is sent off by Mrs Hughes  to Mr Carson to discuss his connubial needs in their impending marriage. Sooo funny. Lest we forget her lines when we need them:-

"No! Listen to me! And take those kidneys up to the servery before I knock you down and serve your brains as fritters." - to Daisy

"I sent you for a drink of water, not a trip up the Nile." - to Daisy

"Oh!…Judas was only trying to help, I suppose, when he brought the Roman soldiers to the Garden." - to Daisy

"You know the trouble with you lot? You are in love with the wrong people." - to Daisy, Alfred, Ivy and Jimmy

"Sometimes you can spend too long on a one-sided love." - to Daisy

"Do I look like a frolicker?!"—Mrs Patmore to Mr Carson when she is accused of frolicking with Ethel
