Hi and welcome to all my very talented and craft loving friends.
I was so saddened by the news on hearing it late Thursday evening about our beloved Queen, I remember celebrating her Coronation when I was just 4 years old.
If you have been folowing my blog for many years you would have seen the picture of me in a Coronation Cake outfit my Mother made for me to go to fancy dress ball.
I actually won first prize too.
This is the photo taken by the South Wales Argus of the first second and third.
I am the one in the centre of the picture the one on my left is my older sister don't know the name of the girl on my right.
My mother printed Westminster Abbey on my blouse I cannot imagine how she idid that in 1953 and then studded items around the cake skirt.
On the top was a the Royal Coach and Horses my mother bought to put on there, apparantly they are worth a lot of money now.
Don't know what happened to mine I most proberly played with it and broke it.
Here is acloser picture of my outfit and the cake.
Thank you so much for sharing my memories.
I really appreciate every vist and wonderful comments you make.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
