Union Jack Love, and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.


Today I have England on my mind.


Lately, the Union Jack seems to be popping up everywhere! It's on everything from clothing, to accessories, to home decor and beyond!

 I have been pinning Union Jack stuff like a mad woman. I thought today would be a great day to share some of these pics with you, in celebration of the Queen's Jubilee. 

Here we go...these were all taken from my Pinterest board
*Note* When re-pinning, please be sure to pin from the original source, when known, and not from my blog page.

Fun painted chair...


 Queen's Jubilee themed parties.

 More fun furniture.

 Party dress, anyone?

How about a fresh take on the Union Jack colors?...
 I have searched for the source on this adorable painted dresser, and could not find it!

Home accents...
 Area rug.

And these wellies are so adorable! I have pinned more than one pair of these!


 That talented Carmel, at Our Fifth House, made this fab headboard for her son. Can you stand it?

I found this cute little tray on Etsy.

 And another blogger's take on the Union Jack...
 Didn't Kristin at Simply Klassic do a great job updating her bedroom?

I am seriously in love with this hoodie!

An inspirational antique...
 I love how this old sofa looks all dressed in the Union Jack!

Miss Mustard seed outdid herself with this painted dresser!

*sigh*


And of course, the fun mini cooper painted up in the Union Jack!
 One of my favorite bloggers, Linda @it all started with paint, has made the most fabulous pillows, and is selling them in her Etsy shop, Drop Cloth Designs.
She is one talented woman!

Why not enjoy that Diamond Jubilee hype while it's happening? 

Do you have the fever too? Would you buy yourself something Union Jack inspired?

Hope you have a fabulous day! 
Cheerio!

    1. Wow, thanks so much, Vanessa! I am still working on getting myself a "real" blog design, but I am chugging along with my little baby.

      Looking forward to meeting you at Haven! It should be a blast!
