Going To The Chapel

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably noticed a whiff of Royal Wedding Fever in the air. Perhaps you've even got a touch of it. I know I have- Sister has already set the DVR, and I will be joining her on the couch tomorrow, beer in hand, tiara on my head, to "ooh" and "ahh" and point and laugh at all of the festivities.
It seems it's far-reaching fingers have even gotten a grip on Etsy, because, while doing my daily perusal of all things fabulous and crafty this morning, I couldn't help but notice a sharp rise in the number of Union Jacks and screenprinted Westminster Abbeys cropping up in shops. There were so many delightful finds, that I just had to pop in with a bonus post (!) to share them all with you.

Tote, plate, and mugs all from The House That Lars Built

Tea towel from Claudia G. Pearson

Cupcake Toppers from Selina Lake
Apron from Vintage Stitch

Cake stand from Esther Coombs

What about you? Have you set the alarm, or the DVR? Will you be there, or will you be in bed, covers over head, lamenting that you will not be princess, after all? Or perhaps you will just be going merrily about your day, all "Royal what? Wedding who?". Regardless, a pip pip and a cheerio to you, Dear Readers.

oh my, i NEED my own tiara now! haha perfect. also i love those finds, my friend is absolutely OBSESSED with this wedding so maybe i should get her a nice souvenir :)

Ella said...

though the prospect of people getting up at one a.m to watch the wedding is a tad absurd, these pieces are quite wonderful :)

Heather, thank you for visiting my blog. I am sooo getting up in the wee morning hours tomorrow. Also, this is a great post and I may have to treat myself to a royal souvenir. I truly madly deeply can't wait for the royal wedding. Sigh.

Heather said...

Jess- yes, you do ;) I have a bag full of them- mostly the plastic sort a little girl might play dress up with. I find that wearing a tiara makes even the most mundane task a bit more bareable.

What a motley crew the world any distance from England will be tomorrow...all of us in various states of sleeplessness, depending on our time zones!
