I've put together a small display of some of my souvenirs for her birthday, they are shown on a hand embroidered coronation tablecloth which I will show in detail on a later post, it is so pretty. The backdrop is a coronation sampler. A coronation brooch, which I sometimes wear is at the front and of course a mini Gold Coach and horses.
A new addition to my collection is this pretty cup showing the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret rose. Went to a large local trash and treasure market last Sunday and that's where I found this little treasure. The saucer is missing and the picture a little scratched but I am thrilled with it.
A beautiful hand embroidered sampler showing part of the Queens first Christmas speech in 1952. This was an ebay purchase and another of those must have items, never seen one like it before.
Part of the embroidered Queens speech, it was in the book of all the Queen's speeches I received as a Christmas gift.
New stamp issue every year to celebrate the Queen's birthday and this is the issue for 2010. Lovely photo of her I think.
Today is also the birthday of a friend and her middle name is Elizabeth.
Happy Birthday P.F. Lucky you, sharing a birthday and a name with the Queen.
My middle name is Margaret so I suppose that will have to be close enough.
