Best of British Week

The Queen
as seen on stamps, on coins in my purse, craft items and even on artwork

* a much younger Queen - letterpress stamp from PostalHeritage UK

* Queen pendant from Arete on Etsy

Royal Mail stamps from an online stamp club, Kiloware Stamps


and great artwork from Ann Carington - this queen portrait was made entirely of safety pins - as seen in Serena Rees & Joe Corre's (owners of Agent Provocateur) London town house featured in USA Vogue
