They're Changing Guards at Buckingham Palace

Look what my mum sent me, a booklet of embroidery transfers for George VI's coronation (1937) found amongst my grandma's sewing things.

I think I might frame a few of these.


  1. My mother used to sing me that song...

    They're changing guards at Buckingham Palace. Christopher Robin went down with Alice. Alice is marrying one of the guards- "A guard's life is terribly hard", says Alice.

    Beautiful find, and nice memory!

  2. These are wonderful! They do need framing!

  3. That is beautiful.. What treasures she sent you!

  4. how wonderful, lucky gal!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a message and brighten up my day. Merci!
