Spring has finally arrived to MN. Or at least somewhat. The weather is slowly but surely warming up each day. But the flowers have not yet bloomed. The photo on the left was taken last year. Anyway, to celebrate the first day of Spring (which was yesterday) I thought I would do a blog post.
Today’s topic is my Anglophile Collection Part 2 and a bit of other random stuff as well. Let us first start off with my Anglophile Collection.
This past Saturday I drove to Barnes and Nobles to buy a book that was on the clearance shelf on Winston Churchill. I thought it would be the perfect addition to my growing collection of WWII books. While there, I also happened upon a second book–one I hadn’t planned on buying. But I am glad I did! This book is British historian Dan Jones’ book on the War of the Roses and is featured in the photo down below. Also pictured is the Churchill book and a Union Jack hardcover journal which I have yet to use up. (I’ll admit I’m rather afraid to write in it because then it will be all used up). Dan’s book is usually 36.00. I got it for 6.98!
Going back to my collection, I decided to take pictures of the stuff I mentioned in Part 1. Also included in this photo is a homemade Union Jack ipod case made by my roommate last year. And I included a Bath and Body hand soap called tea and shortbread. It smells amazing!
This next picture contains a photo of a London box I forgot I had that my parents got me for Christmas a while back, London themed scrapbooking embellishments, and a postcard of a English village a friend in England sent me.
This last photo is of my London themed dishes. I love these mugs and bowl so much!
