You know. I'm an Australian girl. You all know it. But I love it here in my adopted country. I love the fact I've met the man of my dreams, have a lovely career and have come "home" in a sense, to where many of my ancestors (and indeed my beautiful mum) were born. I also like the monarchy here in the UK (although *may* have voted for Australia to become a republic some years ago).
I've also seen the Queen a few times in my life. When I was a wee nipper, she visited Australia and I saw her on two different occasions, and then in 2002, I was in London for the Golden Jubilee. In recent years, I do feel that with the marriage of Kate and Wills, and now this Diamond Jubilee - the monarchy has managed to provide two beautiful and happy historical events. There is MUCH to be said for that - to pause for such positive celebrations... We, as a society - don't do that enough.
For today's blog post - with the help of George
I am enjoying being a part of a
Big Ole' Vintage Jubilee Blogparty!
What a treat and a pleasure. George was nice enough to send me supplies - including this LOVELY George Dress in a size 22. I love the dress, actually! For the post, I went for a Summery, tea-party style dress with a cross over bust and a self-tie back. The fabric is quite light and thin and will be lovely and floaty through Summer... It is also a bargain at only £16.00!
George also sent me a pack of Emma Bridgewater FUDGE to say thank you! YUM!
In any case however you feel about this Diamond Jubilee Celebration, I do hope you are having a beautiful weekend. For me, as an Aussie girl who loves her adopted home - it feels pretty great to be here!
