Who among us doesn’t like a good royal wedding? I’m just as much a fan of a royal wedding as the next guy. In fact, I’ve been thinking about the royal wedding a lot lately:
The royal wedding has inspired more wedding memorabilia than you can imagine. You think you can imagine, but you can’t imagine.
I kind of want this. A lot. Even though it’s ridiculous. But that has never stopped me before. Bobbins, people, bobbins. Ask me how many unfinished/unopened counted cross stick kits I already have. No. Don’t ask me.
I was never a fan of Diana’s dress. It was a wrinkly, unflattering mess at first glimpse and history hasn’t improved it at all. But a paper doll version? I say yes.
There are royal wedding marriage mugs aplenty all over eBay but hardly any fit my criteria. Most are shiny dark blue and as you know, I cannot drink form a dark cup. White interiors only, please. The next most frequent offering have gold trim which renders them ineligible for the dishwasher. Almost all cups and mugs have a picture of Diana’s floppy commoner hairdo and that is a big no. This one fills my bill except for the insane price tag.
O.M.G. Carlton Walking Ware. Do you know that at one time, I had a CWW teapot, sugar bowl, creamer and two cups? And they all had different sock patterns and shoe colors? And the sugar bowl sat on the end of a shelf with its legs crossed properly at the knee? Where is that stuff now? Probably long gone off to the Amvets rummage sale. I wish I had it back. Maybe it’s in a box in the basement? Lookatthisonehowcuteacurtsey…
Ok. I started this post to mock royal wedding memorabilia on eBay but I think it’s pretty obvious that I have become bewitched by my own past once again and found things that I think I positively need to buy.
Post over. I am stepping away from the computer for a while.
