The sun has got his hat on!

Well, guess what? I didn't make Exbury Gardens last week because the Exec was ill. And then I was ill. Typical! So we're going tomorrow unless something unexpected happens, and I'll be taking my camera, so you've been warned!

Last weekend wasn't a complete washout though; look what I found in our local antiques centre Chesapeake Mill :

A fab bit of vintage paste for ten pounds - might have even been around in 1952 when The Queen was being crowned - who knows? Isn't it lovely?

So, I'm well and truly ready for The Queen's Diamond Jubilee now. I shall wear it all day and eat coronation chicken and sherry trifle. Hurrah!

I rather think I should whip up an appropriate cocktail or three to toast Ma'am with as well. What do you think?  All suggestions gratefully received - I'll need to test them out before the big day!

Love the vintage bling! What a great way to celebrate the BIG day.

Thanks, Glynis! I'd never have found it if I'd gone looking - was after a Murano paperweight - cheered me up no end! I should get some Babycham in actually ...

I hope you've had a wonderful long weekend.

I thought of you and Friday and indeed Monday as we drove past the signs for Lyndhurst. :o)

Oh, I love poking around in antiques centres! You and I will HAVE to get together sometime and indulge ourselves...haha! When we're both not knee deep in edits.

I celebrated the Diamond Jubilee over here in the colonies! Don't tell anyone, I am a closet monarchist!
Loved the concert...realised how old I am when I knew all the Cliff Richards and Tom Jones songs!
