Diamond Jubilee Weekend

My Dad's Original Commemorative Tin from 1952 made by OXO.
 Elizabeth was only 25 (same age as me!) when she become Queen in 1952 and is only the 2nd Monarch to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee after her Grandmother Queen Victoria. In 4 years she will have been the longest serving Monarch in Britain's history.

Watching some of the programmes over the past few weeks to celebrate the Jubilee, I have seen some pretty great outfits on the queen! Especially in the early days!

1975




 The yellow dress worn by the Queen in 1975 really reminded me of this Blue Spotted Vintage Dress currently available from the Bristol St Vintage Shop! Size 12-14, Only £16 Found Here

An 'Upcoming Events' page has now been added to my shop, so keep an eye on that one for where/when you can see Bristol St Vintage!
