Coronation Crackers!!!

Tis here, Tis here!
The day of joyous jubilation's for Her Majesty the Queen's Diamond Jubilee has at last arrived!
If I wasn't to be stuck in a church, guarding my treasures, and poking anyone that touches me stuff with a stick (only joking... am I?), then I would be in the big city of Londinium with my sister (if she would have me!), waving flags with much merriment, and wearing my special hat, whilst all the little (and big) boats pass by on the Flotilla- Sounds rather nice, but ah well, back to reality- the church it is(see the last post for the reason why!)
(Pa said  the TV coverage on the flotilla starts at 13:30 tomorrow if you are like me and cannot be there!)
And so to the last bits n’ bobs from my ever growing collection of Corrie crackers...
First up is this colourful calendar- what day is it anyone... anything special happening perchance?

Something for the well dressed man about town, perhaps?

Cracking bit of neck wear, eh!

...And if you are inclined to be a bit weepy about such occasions (you should see me when I'm watching the remembrance service!) then you must have a hankie to hand!

And why not let it be a Coronation one!

Of course on such an occasion, one must have a hat...
...Will this one do?

This AMAZING hat and handmade apron was bought from a flea (about a year ago?), and the Lady who I bought it off said it was worn by Roy's (I think!) mother at their Birmingham street party!
I really want to wear this hat out tomorrow night, but Ma says she will disown me if I do- I think it's rather a natty hat myself!

Well that is it folks, the end of  22 weeks worth of Coronation crackers!
All over- no more- finito!
Actually, I have quite a few treasures form the '37 coronation and Edward VIII bits too- hey that's an idea.........

Well I'll love you and leave you-
all terrified at the thought of yet more Corrie crackers, no doubt!
But don't worry, I'm not that evil. Anyway, it's RAF week next- haha!

Officially all Jubileeeeeed out!


  1. I've enjoyed all your Coronation Cracker posts - you have some beautiful stuff. Hope the display goes well - poking with a stick is SO tempting I'm sure :o) Have a jolly Jubilee!

  2. Oh, please do keep a regular collection post going, I use it to try and persuade my Ma that i don't have much such after all! Have a lovely weekend, and please do tell us outside of London and without tellys what's going on - Flotilla News, as read by Miss Tupney... Then we'll get that WVS van sorted next weekend :)

  3. Fab hat, with that and the apon on you can't go wrong making the Coronation Crown jelly.

  4. I love the hat.... you should wear it! I was busy at the local vintage fair yesterday but plan to watch the tv this afternoon. Happy Jubilee missy :) x

  5. That hat should be shown to full advantage! Love it.
