Victoria Day And Some British Items

This year Victoria day falls on May 18th here in Canada which is to celebrate Queen Victoria's Birthday which is actually May 24th.  The picture above is a postcard of  British Columbia's Parliament building in Victoria on Vancouver Island.  The picture below is of a book I picked up a while back of the grand lady herself Queen Victoria.
I Have To Share This With You Before Carrying On With This Post:
My husband told me this past week one day just before we left for work that he had something to tell me that would make me really happy and want to give him lots of kisses.  I threw my arms around his neck gave him a big kiss and told him I would let them know I was quitting at work that day.  He said that wasn't a good idea.  I said well what do you have to rate such a reaction.  He said the shirt I was wearing was on inside out and I might want to fix it before leaving.  So I'm still slaving away at work.  Boy I liked my idea way better. 


The collage is of British themed items.
Top Row: Keep Calm sign, Garden theme books, a stamp with a Dalek from Doctor Who
Middle Row: Jug with Prince Phillip , Collage of British items, Jug with Queen Elizabeth 2nd 
Bottom Row: Tardis Piggy Bank and Doctor Who figurine, Bobbie hat bell, Cars from my collection

These postcards are of areas around England.

This is the first time I've posted the top Harrod's bag the bottom one has been posted before.

The Land Rover Defender is a British Vechile I've always liked, the ones in the pictures above are some I see around the Fraser Valley.  I like them all but the middle one is the one I would like to have parked in my driveway.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Have a wonderful week.


  1. Not the great surprise you wanted - but all the same, better that you were told about the shirt before you left for work. Great collection of Royalty that you shared today. Love seeing your white poppy.

  2. Thanks for sharing your 'shirt' story. I once got to work with two different shoes on :/.
    My favorite picture is the Queen Victoria book.

  3. Great post with fab photos, fun share of history. Ha, your story. Maybe next time it will be winning a lottery. :)

  4. Enjoyable trip down royalty lane.

  5. Hi Denise,

    LOL I love your husband's sense of humor. British blue is pretty isn't it? Thanks for playing today.

    Have a Beautiful Blue Monday!

  6. I'm sorry you had to go to work after all but happy you got your shirt turned out the right way. :-)
    I hope you had a great Victoria Day weekend, we had company for dinner so I'm late visiting everyone.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Denise.

  7. A very nice tribute! I am happy that you were able to get turned around when you had to work! Someday's life is really more difficult! We just try to make the best of it and later on find out it was not a big deal! Now I am talking about my life! HeeHee!
    I really did enjoy the Victoria Day tribute! Have a terrific week.

  8. Love the Union Jack print and enjoyed your post. The shirt story made my day...makes me feel normal for all my "wardrobe malfunctions." Thanks for sharing.

  9. Great collection, Denise! Stopping by from Joanne's party...Love that you celebrate Queen Victoria; she was indeed an incredible monarch. P.s. Appreciate the Dr Who figure, too =)

  10. What a wonderful celebration. I love that first photo! I had to laugh that you had you shirt on wrong side out. Sounds like something I would do. lol! I have white, orange, red, and salmon poppies. All are blooming right now and I love them. Yours is gorgeous!
