British Jubilee Love

We are in the middle of a weekend celebrating of all things British!
I know I am a Francophile...but having had a Scottish Canada Grandma,
I grew up with a healthy dose of Hello Magazine, decorative Royal commemorative
tea tins, cups, and various other Royal Family chachkies.
 It is in my blood..I am 100% English.
So how can I help but...
put up our union jack bunting
 eat some fish and chips

buy this cutie at
Cost Plus for less then $20.

Now all we need to do is read some Shakespeare,
recite all of King Henry the 8th wives, watch some Mr. Bean,
have some tea, a pint  and to top it all off...
Maybe some Masterpiece...

 They are doing much grander things to celebrate
in the UK, but here at our house, in our own little
way we are celebrating too and I know my Grandma
would be proud that her love for her country
and heritage was passed down to me!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend

 Celebrating the things worth celebrating.
God Save The Queen!


  1. If there is one thing I adore it is loyalty to anything...if there are two? Loyalty to your country...I am loving experiencing all the pomp with my blogger friends

  2. Oh beautiful Caroline...I love this adorable post! We must connect soon...xoxo lylah

  3. Dearest Carolyn,

    Well there is a lot of British in us as well, loving Burberry, British tweeds, and on and on... Nothing wrong with that! It sure was a very happy anniversary. Enjoy a great week ahead.


  4. What a sweet tribute to the queen and the jubilee! I am definitely an Anglophile. I also love all things Scottish and Irish since most of my ancestors were Scotch Ulsters.

    Lovely post!
    God save the queen!


  5. Wonderful that you are taking in your heritage and celebrating...honoring both country and Grandma!
    It sounds fun at your household the kids must be thrilled!

    fish and chips sounds delish too!

  9. This looks so fun! I can only dream of having such a fun heritage - and celebrating with fish & chips and the Union Jack... Sigh.
    I so enjoy all of your creative posts, keep 'em coming!

  10. How fun! Wouldn't you know... I have been thinking of Britain too. But I am extra excited! I get to go and spend the whole month of July in jolly old England! It is the chance of a lifetime and I am just ecstatic! Your blog post gave me little thrills in my tummy. I will just barley miss the opening ceremony of the Olympics.
