Amy's Old School Tips

To get in the mood for Valentines day here is one of my favorite "vintage" things, If you can call it that, watching period pieces that evoke eras with amazing fashion and architecture and of course romance! Valentines day is the perfect day/month to imbibe in this guilty pleasure and require your significant other to participate in the viewing of a great romantic movie! I recently watched The North and South a BBC miniseries, from 2004, about a middle class southerner who is forced to move to the northern factory town of Milton. It is staring, a very handsome, Richard Armitage and Daniela Denby-Ashe.

Of course I have many favorites including Mansfield Park, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility  Becoming Jane (Are you noticing a Jane Austin theme here?) and that's just the beginning! The BBC's Masterpiece Classic creates the most amazing miniseries which can be found online for viewing!

So, Grab a glass of wine, box of chocolates, and tissues, and celebrate the joy, sorrow and joy again that is a romantic period piece!
