Our Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating 60 years on the throne in Britain beginning today, June 2, 2012.
As far as I know there are very few celebrations here in Vancouver BC.
We have some of our own planned, including a small display of royal souvenirs.
I found the lovely plate showing Queen Elizabeth's life in pictures at the New Westminster antique show a few weeks ago. I bought the tin of Jubilee tea at my local Winners shop, and I had the other items already, including the lovely coronation book with black and white photos from 1953.
I made my Bleuette's dress using a 1953 pattern designed by Robin Barrows.
I made the little UK flag.
We are all set!
Let the celebrations begin!
God save the Queen!
