Charlotte and Emily have been featured in a very small local newsletter, although they have yet to receive any fan mail they love seeing their picture in print.
Emily always looks a bit nervous or worried in photos and Charlotte is wearing her usual defiant"My Way or the Highway"look.
Here is Charlotte again, this time checking her profile in the mirror and looking as if she has just had a fright. Not a good idea to look on a bad hair day Charlotte!
The book that can be seen, bottom corner is by Sue Townsend titled Adrian Mole and the Weapons of Mass Destruction. Very funny book.
New addition to my Royal Collection is this silk embroidered Gold Coach made for the Queens Silver Jubilee in 1977. Made by J&J Cash of Coventry. I knew Cash's were famous for their name tapes but did not know till I saw this souvenir that they also made beautiful silk embroidered pictures.
J&J Cash also made this box with embroidered panel for Charles and Diana's wedding. The wooden box was made for Cash's by crafstmen from the Tatra mountains in Poland.
I put some Charles and Diana jewellery in the box so it would not look too empty. Now I must google the Tatra mountains as I have never heard of them before. The two souvenirs came with full details of their make and make unusual additions to my collection.
Could not resist buying this jewelled spider (I think someone famous once said " I can resist everything except temptation") and that's me too. The theory I have is that all other spiders will see this one clinging to the curtain and go next door. It's been there a couple of weeks and I haven't seen a spider but it is winter so I'll wait and see what summer brings.
