Keep Calm & Marry On

In anticipation of the Royal Wedding tomorrow (also my youngest sister's birthday-Happy Birthday Princess=)!!) I thought I would share a few of the finds my mom returned home with from her recent trip abroad.

These are my socks, Kate engagement ring and crown necklace...yes I will be dressing up for the royal occasion.
My mom and dad took a trip to England, France and Scotland...they had some built in family to visit and by all accounts had a very sweet trip indeed.
This bag is so perfect!...The colors, the it! So pretty British.

Love, love these purses she brought back from Edinburgh...super cute!!

My mom brought me my very own vintage English primer...and a Liberty of London pencil...

This purse!! And the little carrying pouch!!
They are for her, but I love them very much.
All three pieces, purse, wallet & carrying pouch...

And another side of the oh so cute wallet. Such a score!

Fun "If the tiara fits..." hand sanitizer and lipgloss from Bath & Body Works. I am so prepared now for the wedding.

How fun would this be for a Royal Wedding party! Love the cupcake set especially, of course. The Rooster bread box is one of my sister's vintage finds from years back at Farm Chicks-she gifted it to my mom, who has had a rooster/chicken collection forever, thanks to her grandma Kuchenbuch's collecting. It goes way back, this collecting thing!

Quite love this little bowl she found by "PIP Studios-happy products for happy people" I also loved all of the Cadbury Mini Eggs in the bowl...

Cute patterned tray from Liberty of London...while we get bits and pieces of it at Target, but there is a whole, huge store filled with goodies in England!

Mom brought back some finds from Paris to sell at Funky Junk; these are some of the old Paris postal box keys and numbers she brought back for me and my sisters.

Vintage is the new modern across the ocean, as well!

I think she may have spent all of her pennies...or pounds.

A pillow that my mom picked up, remarkably, not in London, but on

I think that I will just have to settle for Keep Calm & Eat A Cupcake...
These were my concoctions for my Easter boys.

After the Royal Wedding Day, I will be heading up to the Five Mile Prairie Grange for an amazing Tag Sale/Rummage Sale, put together by Serena Thompson, Farm Chick.

There will be a grange full of girls with there assorted junk...sounds like the perfect way to spend a day!! Funky JUnk Jennifer will be there, among others, and is bringing a truckload. I am bringing a bit of everything..and I have no doubt that everyone will find something! My only hope is to make money, not spend it all (I have a feeling...) and bring home less than I bring to sell (I have a feeling, though...)=)

Saturday, April 30th

8 a.m. -3 p.m.
