Not gonna lie, this lyric was definitely the hardest, by far. I must watch a lot of period drama, because I thought it would be a breeze! It seemed like there were lords and ladies everywhere in The Tudors, or even Downton Abbey. Alas, much harder to find online in home decor. I tried to think outside of the box. Lord of the Rings? Too genre. Traci Lords? Too inappropriate, though I love Cry-Baby. I thought about featuring all “lords-a-leaping” goods, like this paper cut wall hanging or this clever art print, but there weren’t even enough of those to go around. And men labeled Earls, Counts and other assorted noble titles just would not do. In the end, I chose a sampling of lords, some silly and some somber, and included a bounce castle (I thought they’d feel at home there) and cool springless trampoline for leaping purposes. Enjoy, and let’s hope that 11 PIPERS PIPING is easier on us all.

  2. Briana, you forgot Lord Voltemort. With numerous mentions of Harry Potter and design ideas from the castle, I thought he'd be the first on the list. LOL. Just kidding. He was the first to pop into my head (how sad!)
