Charlotte Emily and Royals

Back again after a long blogger break, I blame the computer, the computer blames me. We've agreed we are having relationship problems for which we will now seek counseling. Charlotte and Emily have been very patient but are anxious to show how they have become famous in a small way.
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!
And don't use my comb or anything else of mine without asking first.
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.

  1. Lovely to see you back in blogland again. The girls have been busy with the paparazzi I see. And it looks like you have increased your Royal collection. So I guess you've all been busy.

    Hope your computer treats you more kindly in future.

  2. That's how it starts you know ~ one photo in the local paper ~ next thing ~ stardom! :) The girls always look so beautiful ~ no bad photos for them.

    You always find the neatest things. That spider is very unique!

    Have a lovely weekend,
    xo Catherine

  3. Oh you are a hoot! For someone who doesn't like spiders, to buy something like that and hang it where you can see it! I personally think it is a stunning piece of jewellery, but I could not imagine myself wearing it, or even pinning it on to our curtains. We've got too many friends who hate spiders!
