Did you watch the PBS special on Sunday night....VICTORIA? It was wonderful and I can't wait for more! The sets are fabulous and the costumes are exquisite. I have enjoyed reading about Queen Victoria over the years.
The young Victoria....I love this crown!
The casting is well done and it will be interesting to watch the young queen develop. Prince Albert will appear next Sunday.
I had to use my one and only Queen Victoria cup and saucer this afternoon for tea. It's a very sweet teacup and I treat it tenderly. It is a rather small cup however the saucer is regular sized.
This tea cup actually commemorates her Silver Jubilee. I have shared the cup before on my blog but it is always a joy to share this one with my readers.
Look at this fine piece I received this Christmas. It's a covered porcelain jar issued on Queen Elizabeth II's coronation. My friend Mary in Virginia gifted me with this treasure. It's a fine addition to my collection. I am crazy about British King and Queen items.
A few years, I picked up these little cigarette collectible cards. This is the coronation series and I was lucky to find several kings and queens, including Queen Victoria! They are just fun.
It looks like our winter storm that has lasted for a whole week, is on the way out tonight. We did get a bit of freezing rain, but the temperature is warming and we are hoping that most of the snow will be melting away with the rain....it is pouring right now. That's fine with me. I will take the good old Oregon rain. I look forward to just getting in my car and driving off to do errands. It's been a whole week. I always wanted to be snowed in for a week. I guess you need to be careful what you wish for! I didn't really want to be snowed in at my own house. I never thought this would happen. It will be a sloppy mess for a few days.
