Queen Mother's Birthday

A small tribute to a favourite royal, the Queen Mother born 4th August 1900. The souvenirs are from the Q.M's 100th birthday, except the flower brooch on the left with crown on top which is from the coronation 1937 and the tiny figurine is on a thimble.


  1. What a lot of changes she saw.

    The brooch is very pretty.

  2. The Queen Mom sure did like her hats didn't she? :) Do you watch the TV series The Tudors? The 4th and final season is airing soon. I can hardly wait. That King Henry VIII... what a guy!!

    Happy Day!

  3. Thanks so much for posting this..I shall share it to Auntie Toni tomorrow at tea, I am sure she remembered as well :)
