Friday Five: A Royal Wedding

April 29, 2011

Who else is up  with me? I could not sleep last night, wondering when it would be time to get up. This is HIGHLY unusual behaviour (spelling with the “ou” this morning…). At the moment (5:30am), the royal family is being transported in some VW vans (wha???) to the Abbey.

Royal Weddings lead to some terrific souvenirs. I have a little bank from Charles and Di’s wedding. I may have to dig it out now that it’s en vogue.

And as I sit here with some coffee, in desperate need of a scone (does Alon’s deliver?) I thought I’d share my favorite Royal Wedding trinkets from today’s affair.

Clockwise from top left:

1. Boden union jack scarf.  2. Heinz Beans (Ok, not a souvenir, but very British you know, and I love the label!)  3. Jonathan Adler British Flag Coasters.  4. Wedgwood china mug.  5. Etsy tea towels from here and here.

Okay–it’s almost time for Kate to make her debut! I’m loving Prince William in the red…who’s with me?

    Couldn’t care less – was MUCH more excited for your wedding :-) But why does she go by “Kate” (not “Cate”) if her name is Catherine?

    I had British baked beans when I was in England!
