Wednesday Wants….. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is nearly here!

I’m afraid you’re going to have to forgive me for getting super excited about the Diamond Jubilee and talking of little else over the next couple of weeks. I posted ages ago about how I was looking forward to it, and my subsequent Union Flag obsession…. and what with busying myself making Jubilee related treasures for my Etsy and Folksy shops, it’s hard not to come across lots of very British things I really want to get my hands on!…..

Dog Street Party Cushion Diamond Jubilee, £7.16 on Etsy by Senor Picklesworth

I’m in love with everything on the Senor Picklesworth shop on Etsy….. they specialise in Chihuahua themed stationery, gifts and all sorts, and I’m crazy about their Jubilee inspired pieces. Celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, Senor Picklesworth the Chihuahua is visiting London, and this delightful cushion also features his friends Cyril the Boston Terrier, Coco the Pug & Mycroft the French Bulldog…. they are all having a street party together!

Diamond Jubilee bunting, £13.01 on Etsy by Corydora

Anyone that knows me will tell you I’m crazy about bunting. I have a big collection already, and always hoping to add more… so this specially made bunting by Corydora would make the perfect addition! It has been block printed with hand lino carved motifs and attached to hand made cotton flags and pale blue binding. Each item is a one-of-a-kind piece and perfect for a Jubilee street party!

Red, white & blue Jubilee dress, £65 on Etsy by Hayley Jayne Designs

And what to wear at this street party?! Well, this handmade 100% cotton dress gets my vote! With a habutai silk lining and integrated netted petticoat, it has a gorgeous full skirt and deliciously 50s silhouette. I love the off-centre, asymmetric Union Flag pattern. It’s made to measure so get your order in, in time for those summer picnics!

I fear this will only be the second of many Jubilee related posts, so bear with me!

  1. You would look fabulous in that dress. Have you seen the Sunday Times Style this weekend? They had ideas for a Jubilee picnic that made me think of you x
