I know that you're probably all completely "Jubillee'd-out" by now, but I had to post a few pictures of my current dresser display! I will also be keeping this up for the Olympics, with perhaps just a few changes here and there;
Over the past 6 months I have been collecting royal memorabilia from charity shops and jumble sales in readiness for my display, including a 1977 Silver Jubillee tray, 99p:
Commemorative mugs from Royal Weddings, the Diamond and Golden Jubillee and an original Coronation beaker, this was just 10p from a jumble sale last year, the others were all between 30p - £1.00;
A lovely display, which cost me next to nothing!
This original flag came from the loft of my late Nan's house, my mum remembers waving it at a street party celebrating the Coronation when she was a little girl;
Now you're probably thinking what an earth my Jubillee display has to do with the Toadstools! Well....nothing, only that they fitted in to the colour theme so they were allowed to stay. I've been dying to show you these since I bought them last month at the Smallholder & Garden Festival in Builth Wells;
Aren't they lovely!! You could watch them being carved, and for an extra 50p, a name added;
for Mia and Baby Boy!!
Mia was very pleased...and perhaps one day Baby Boy will be too! I just couldn't resist them as i've developed quite a thing for Toadstools recently! I've been admiring some fabric and miniature pegs from Ebay, as well as these lovely fairy-lights, candles and felt models from the Dotcomgiftshop;
We could definitely have some fun with those I think!
