|I love this photo! It was taken when the families who lived in my Mum's road all got together to celebrate the Queen's Coronation. The Grand Union Canal flowed along the bottom of the gardens, which made it the perfect place for a picnic. My lovely Nan is the first lady on the left of the row of Mums standing at the back. Thankfully her back is slightly turned, as that is my Uncle (her son) just in front of her, making the rude hand gesture!! There's one in every family you know! ;-)) My Mum knew how to behave herself however - She's on the left table, second row, second one in, looking straight at the camera. It was my Mum who sent me this photo for my blog... Thanks Mum! x|
|...So today I've been making a few decorations. |
I stuck some old paper scraps of the royal family onto ribbon...
|I've put these along the edge of one of the shelves.|
|I've also been making short lengths of bunting, using vintage fabrics and salvaged pieces of hand crochet lace.|
|These I've strung up in each of my shop's windows. I've gone to town with the red, white and blue theme, and displayed lots of vintage and handmade treasures in them too.|
|I hope you enjoy the extra long weekend.|
