I saw these tea towels yesterday whilst shopping in Aldi and I really loved them so I decided to make some right Royal Bunting. They had quite a selection of household goods with a patriotic theme including a door mat with soldiers, a Union Flag rug etc. They did have Kate and Will paper plates but I really don't think I could eat my Afternoon Tea off a plate with their faces peering at me.
Three patriotic tea towels - £2.99
Soldiers all in a row - I do sometimes get befuddled by this computer lark - sometimes I can rotate my photos and sometimes it just won't let me today as you can see it won't let me.
Few of my red white and blue bits and pieces - pixie belonged to my lovely Nan Lily, the tin was from
an Antiques Fair for £1 and K found the jug and coffee pot on one of his CS jaunts both for £10 - woop for thee CS loving hubby. They were going on Ebay but I think they will be staying
My lovely red and white spotty jug that Betty bought me
This was tricky to photograph its a terrier dog in an Art Deco style. It hasn't got a makers mark on it so I have no idea who it is made by. I bought is as a pressie for K and he loves it.
Bunting in the window - some of the soldiers are upside down but I thought it was a shame not to use them.
I did a very quick basic bunting make. Simple triangles cut out not hemmed or finished sewn onto a ribbon. They are not going to be up long indoors and then they might adorn the garden or my nephew H's bedroom. They got the thumbs up from K even and he has an dislike of bunting. It is a standing joke in our house as I once made some for the garden - again from tea towels - and I used the precise number of triangles to spell a rude phrase. Of course I didn't tell him for a while and now bunting in our house is known as f*** off bunting. That's between the grown ups only of course. I think at the time we had fallen out and I made it to annoy him.
Big wave and hello to all you lovely people out there who have taken the time to read my ramblings - It really is great fun. Do you know I haven't written anything for pleasure in years!!!!
