Touched by Royalty

This past Monday, May 21st Canadians celebrated Victoria Day, so named after Queen Victoria.  Canadians are part of the commonwealth and so Queen Elizabeth II of England is our Queen too. 2012 marks her 60th year on the throne,  her Diamond Jubilee!

As part of special Diamond Jubilee celebrations her son, Prince Charles, and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, came to Canada - touring 3 cities - and my city is where they visited and celebrated Victoria Day!

So, my gal pal P & I could not let this occasion pass us by.  We thought even if we can't catch a glimpse of them we can at least be part of the festivities and say we were there. 

Here we are, ready to head out and greet their Royal Highnesses.

This Bobby was patrolling our area of the street, keeping us all in line...and stopping for people to take pictures of him :)

There is Prince Charles shaking hands with the crowd.  He walked down the opposite side of the street that P &  I were on and Camilla walked down our side. Look at the face of the little girl, bottom left, in the white dress.  Love the expression on her face!

Here is Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.  She's talking to a little girl right beside me.
Next, she shook my hand!
She moved on to quickly for P to get a picture of  the handshake, but here she is shaking the hand of the next lady beside me, lol.

Now, can we take pause here and note the lack of hat or headpiece?  I have to say I was a little disappointed. Here she is earlier in the day at another Victoria Day function:

sigh.

P even put a hat on part way through the day due to all the sun! 
She's wearing one that I decorated and I made a fascinator just for this event.



Sneaking pictures through the gate...invite only area..psha!


a gentleman walking by noted how dressed up we were so he asked if we would like diamond jubilee pins.
Yes!

Here they are during part of the festivities, being formally welcomed by our Premier.

Royal Flag on their car.  Woman driver might I add.

Farewell my Prince, lol!

All in all a very fun and exciting day!!

Visible Flower Pants

It's that time of year again!!
Time to bring out my Old Lady Florida Pants!  



Hubby still cringes, but I love them.  I wore them to church today because it was bright and sunny outside; perfect flower pants weather.


The girls clearly like them too!

Vivienne's A Genius

Genius I say, pure genius.
Check out this post at The Vivienne Files for a wonderful way to look at building a wardrobe.

One of these days I'm going to master creating those collage thingies she always uses and make some of my own.  Until then, enjoy her red L.L. Bean wardrobe...

Enjoy the adorableness.

Meet the Ladies!

We became  pet owners again last night!  Hubby and I adopted two adorable little Yorkies from a lady who could no longer care for them.  We are beyond in love with them!

Meet Tiffany & Carlie!

Carlie is the one with the darker brown face.  She follows us around like a little shadow so we've started calling her Shadie.  Tiffany we think kind of looks like a little fox (especially in the bottom left picture) so we call her Foxie.  What do you think?  Should we keep the original names or make some changes?
Either way, they are adorable!
