Coronation 1937 and Apron Embroideries

 Life is a bit stressful and busy right now and not much blogging is being done but I must show a few new treasures in my collections. This beautiful Coronation 1937 cushion cover arrived today. I have framed it but it is still a cushion cover, the excess fabric is taped to the back of the frame. I think it will display much better on the wall. When I find space for it that is.
 From the same seller this pretty apron. A bit like Bo Peep looking for her sheep.
 Another lovely apron in striking colours, both aprons expertly embroidered.
 This eBay apron advertised as 'quirky' and it is that. An old apron but someone at a later stage has edged it with black nylon lace. An interesting addition to my apron collection.
 Went to my craft group today and found I had won this very pretty and warm rug crocheted by a clever member who produces a lot of these rugs for raffle prizes.
 I had to move a display of 'royal' bears from this table so Charlotte could have her bed there on a day with no sun. The hot air from the air cond. comes right down on the spot where she is sitting.
Charlotte and I were admiring this rainbow from the back door and while we were arguing about which one of us us should go and pick up the pot of gold rumoured to be at the end of every rainbow it disappeared.
Your fault Charlotte.


  1. More beautiful items for your collections. Bo-peep could be Mary Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow... The rug you won certainly looks warm and cosy. Shame about the pot of gold but the end of the rainbow does look a bit far away.

  2. I'm so glad to see that you are doing such a wonderful job as Charlotte's maid. One must have warmth when one reaches a certain age:)

  3. Sorry to hear you have been a bit stressed lately. But I bet those aprons and the rug have helped cheer you up! They are all lovely :-)

  4. I think you should built an exposition shed in your garden, it's amazing that you still have space on your walls, and now that Charlotte takes space too ....

  5. Glad to see the royal bears made way for Charlotte! All your new treasures look lovely and the pretty crocheted rug. Lucky you, hope it gives a nice distraction from the stresses. Keep an eye out for that pot of gold.
