Last weekend Jim and I went to some delightful estate sales. I fell in love with this vase and when we went back for the 1/2 price sale, it was still there. Now it lives in our home. I thought it would be just perfect for my Teacup Thursday this week to honor the Queen of England's 60th Jubilee which came to a close on Tuesday. So, this wonderful vase is taking us to London to see the Queen! Here's the back side of the vase with all it's wonderful colors. I love it!
So I thought it would be so fun to bring out some of my various queen things and make a little display of it all. So fun to share it with my blogger friends on this the Queen's 60th Jubilee.
I bought this wonderful teapot at a favorite little gift shoppe years ago-The Green Door-and sadly it no longer exists. The teapot is from the Queen's 25th Anniversary. I like it because it has silver decorations instead of the usual gold trim.
I have enjoyed collecting a variety of teacups celebrating the various queens and hope to find more!
I think this one is so pretty because it has roses and even some around the inside of the cup.
A nice little plate celebrating the Queen's coronation in 1953. Great plates for teatime.
I like this teacup and the picture of the Queen with her two children at the time of her coronation.
Time for some goodies....bring on the teatime treats! I found some little cupcakes with red white and blue sprinkles. Fresh strawberries, lemon cakes, and various frosted l brownies. Oh oh, not diet food!
Here's another sweet item we found at the estate sale last weekend. A great bowl from the King's coronation of 1937. It has a great decal of the royal state couch in the center. I didn't have anything like this in my collection, so I was delighted. The blue hanky is also from the King's coronation....charming.
Thank you for letting me share my collection with you in blogland. Best wishes for Queen Elizabeth II and as they say~Long Live the Queen and God Bless the Queen!
