Thursday Treasures

Queen Elizabeth II's official birthday celebration to will be June 11th. She actually turned 90 on April 21st. This morning I shared a few goodies on my Tasha Tudor site for Dolly Thursday. These are some finds from a few years back.

I love the little Queen Elizabeth doll. She is all decked out in her crown and jewels.

She still has her tag, which is always an extra treat.

This is a sweet little children's book about the Queen's coronation. The two little American children make the queen a beautiful candle that is used in her coronation.

I love paper dolls. I picked this up at an estate sale. It is very fragile but I really treasure it.

I enjoy looking for king and queen things from England to use for tea time. These are my most recent finds.

Edward VIII wasn't king for very long, so it was fun to find an item from his time as king.

As I love red transfer ware, this was an interesting find. It is dated and marked CROWNED  June 26th, 1902. It features Edward VII and Alexandra . It is stamped on the bottom of the mug...Marked for Harrod's Ltd London.

I have been looking for a cream and sugar for all my royal tea items. I finally found a great one! it was made by Ansley to celebrate King George and Mary's Silver Jubilee 1910-1935.

I also found a little metal pencil box celebrating the silver Jubilee too. It's a very fun item for my collection.

It will be fun to see how the Queen will be celebrated on June 11th. God has bless her with a long life and a long reign.

What a lovely tribute. She certainly has been an amazing monarch and is well loved around the world. There are a lot of events going on in the UK to celebrate her birthday. We are going to a garden party tomorrow for afternoon tea. Hopefully the weather will hold. Take care.
