Royal Wedding Day

Despite the recent track record for such marriages and being American, I was quite excited for the royal wedding. I treated myself to two commemorative 1 pint mugs from Emma Bridgewater as I couldn't decide which I liked best. They are the perfect size for my daily latte and having two means Jeff can use one. (Don't you like how I justify another piece of EB?!) On the big day, I had my latte in this one.

It's hard to see here, but one of my favorite touches on this one is the heart motif on the handle. They have both been getting a lot of use.

I found the old biscuit tin in my Grandmother's basement and the newspaper pages in some of my Great Aunt's stationery and I ended up tucking them away in a drawer in my house since they amused me! Now, I have two cute mug boxes to keep some treasures in.

I got up pretty early to watch the TV coverage, though I'd set the Tivo too, so I didn't have to be up at 4am and I didn't miss anything. I loved all the hats! It was fun seeing everyone arrive, like Rowan Atkinson. The horses are a favorite part for me too. Did you spot the loose one?

Hurrah for William and Catherine!

The mugs are so pretty! I wish we had weddings and other events here like they do in England. I love the dignity and ceremony, and of course, the hats.

I loved the Royal Wedding and all the hats, too!
Lucky you, getting two EB Royal Wedding Mugs. I'm envious!
