a royal occasion

There is not much that gets me out of bed at 5:00am (voluntarily). But, a royal wedding? Most certainly! So, you can be sure that I will be leaping up when my alarm goes off on the morning of April 29. I remember watching Diana's wedding on a little black and white tv in the attic of our house in Maine, shivering in the early morning cool of a New England summer.

So, now Kate and Wills! The official schedule has been released (you may find the details here), and the web is proliferating with royal wedding souvenirs. My personal favorites were designed by Brittany over at The House That Lars Built. She has devised some charming pieces, including a "Royal Wedding Procession" tote and print (above), and a very clever pop-art take on The Ring. Everything is available in her etsy shop. (Oh, and you mustn't miss Brittany's own beautiful wedding!)

So, fess up. . . will you be watching?

pve ~ I am so excited. I think I might even pull out my feather fescinator and wear it with my pjs.

I plan to be up and watching the wedding on the 29th too! Can't wait! My sister and I plan on watching it together, actually, just as we watched William's parents get married all those years ago. (I watched it on a little black and white tv, too, but ours was in the basement rather than the attic :).

So glad you decided to share your purchase! You picked a great piece -- and it's so you. How clever to incorporate the architectural sites. Reminds me of your announcement.

you're so sweet. Thanks for your kind words. I will not only be up for it...I'll be THERE for it.

Had not thought about it, but now I may actually put it on the calendar. Didn't everyone watch Charles and Di on black and white TV? My roommate and I made souvenir jewelry (brooches and earrings) using clear laminate and BW pix. Still have some lurking in the jewelry box.
