Friday Etsy Favorites *British*

How are you?
Well, I took a snow day yesterday.  I think this is the most snow I have seen in Tennessee since I moved here when I was 8.
I did make it out to get a much needed hair cut.
Why oh why can't I blow dry my hair like a stylist does.  I feel like I need 4 arms.

Okay, so here is the etsy faves I had planned for last week, but time got away from me.
Recently, since we have been potty training, I have been thinking about baby hughes' big boy room.
And I have become obsessed with this:

(I have no clue where I found this, other than google images)
But, those who know me well, know this it the 
absolutely perfect quilt for baby hughes' big boy room.
I have a bit before I have to get it ready, but seeing as I can't quilt, then I will probably need it!
It started me thinking about how I adore most all things British... you already know I love the boys.  
So, I thought it would be fun to do a favorites on a few things 

A Queen Elizabeth tea cup... doesn't get much more British than that

I have a rather large collection of Dundee Marmalade jars
Quite a few, but if you want to start a collection you can start here

How sweet is this onesie?  Kind of punk too!

Double decker buses on vintage book pages?
love it!

this shop has a great selection of Union Jack cushions

Or, perhaps, a shabbier look is more your style

punk needlefelted eggs... so cute!

Adorable Cath Kidston print of Londonish locals

And, if you are like me, you would love to throw an obviously British word into conversation here or there, but you know you can't pull it off... well, you can wear one instead!

And, not technically a British poster (it is Swedish... it is okay, I like Swedish things too)
found~ handz

And this little number has been in my faves for awhile
I adore fascinators!

So are you thinking we should have some bangers and mash now... er... I don't really like potatoes....
let's just have some tea.
Well, the sun is shining, so I am hoping that it will warm up soon... we are actually supposed to be in the 50s this week!

Cheers! uhhhh... see I told you I can't pull it off!

Bye for now!


  1. i love the union jack motif, i just need to find somewhere to put one in my home :)

  2. Reminds me of a funny story...

    I was on a mission trip in London a few years back with some high school kids. We tried to talk like them. Bri' of tea...that kind of thing...our favorite being "bloody." We used it for EVERYTHING. Come to find out, that's like dropping the f-bomb over there. We felt bad for a bit, but in the end we had a good laugh about it.

    Don't know why I just wrote all that, but your post reminded me of that story and I felt the need to share it.

  3. you know i love this!
    i have to show you the queen elizabeth mug i scored at the thrift store the other day. it's lovely!! cheerio!
