God bless the Queen.....

Some patriotic purchases........ Royal Standard vertical banner, a sash made from 2m vintage ribbon for the Queen's Coronation in 1953 ( removed swiftly from Helen's gorgeous shop.....sorry Helen! )

Two lovely pin brooches  of the late Queen Mother and her husband George VI for their Coronation in 1937 with red, white and blue ribbon.....and a simple, gilt and enamel crown brooch.

A fabulous Union Flag button on its original Made in England card.......

And these handmade Dorset buttons with little brass safety pins on the reverse.......


  1. What gorgeous treasures, I love them!!

  2. Mmmmmmm I think I may need the ribbon back . . . . . . . . . . . now I've seen how gorgeous it looks!!

  3. Helen might be cross if I say 'gorgeous' - but that;s the word to describe your treasures!!

  4. Mmm, a tailor's dummy full of treasured pieces - a lovely idea!

    The RE shop in your earlier blog entry made me want to jump in the car asap - what a gorgeous place! Perhaps just as well it is a little bit of a drive from here, as I would most likely to a little spend-crazy...

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog!

    Best wishes,
    Helena, The Swenglish Home

  5. I love your blog, just cut through from Annes at the corner house.

    I saw RE in a mag and begged hubby to take me.. I live in Warwick LOL!

    If you have time, I dress my dummy too - here
