Top 9: Union Jack (aka The Final Countdown!)


Scones. Check.  Tea (yes! Real loose black tea straight off the plane from London! Thanks AP!). Check.  Pearls. Check

The Royal Wedding is almost upon us. That means in 2 days I’ll need to belt up before I come across as bloody barmy. *Sigh* The Brits have such great slang words. Codswallop.  Kip. Nowt. Owt.

That’s enough now. Today I want to share my top nine Union Jack products on Etsy. Some of them are pretty smart. Sorry, I had to throw one more in there.

1. This burlap pillow, while cute, I can’t imagine would be too comfy. Regardless, I like the stamped lettering. You should put this pillow on one of those chairs that you never sit in. Everyone has that chair, right?

2. I would use these notecards when I was writing my BFF Kate Middleton. I know she would love them.

3. These mittens, while not as cute as the Kate&Wills gloves I found earlier, look warm.

4. I love these cufflinks. I wonder if I could sneak them into my husband’s collection…

5. This collage is interesting. I like that it’s been done on a blonde wood and the subtle patterns of the fabric-reminiscent patterns.

6. What a fun quilt! I like that this is a distant echo from the Union Jack flag. I would actually prefer something like this that’s not quite so “UNION JACK”! The colors are soft and more welcoming than the traditional colors.

7. This weathered dresser would be a unique piece in any bedroom or hallway. Miss Mustard Seed has an awesome tutorial on her blog about how to make a dresser like this.

8. I would use THIS card for when I was writing thank you notes to my BFF’s hubby, Wills, to thank him for inviting us hunting at Clarence House.

9. This clutch is very summery. I wonder if I could make something like this… maybe that will be a post in the future.

Don’t forget mates. 5AM! At least for those of you on the East Coast!

Will you be watching?
