Some ‘British’ Gift Items, and Garden Ornaments

Standard

It’s been lovely weather this last week, and I’m afraid I have been spending all my time in the garden, and haven’t been thinking about posting anything particularly craft based.

And, of course, I watched the Royal Wedding on TV on Saturday!

There are loads of ‘souvenirs’ on sale for the event, and it reminded me that I hadn’t got around to listing some of my new stock on julzcraftstore.com, where I also sell an eclectic mix of gift items.

Some of these are just for fun – and altho’ none of them specifically relate to ‘The Wedding’, I have a few ‘Union Jack’ bits and pieces that fly the ‘British flag’ and are often bought by my international customers.

You can find them listed in the ‘British Category’ of Julz Craft Store – HERE

I also sell a few garden related items, and have recently re-ordered some of these rather lovely small garden ornaments.

Prices range from £12.99 – £17.99 – and you can see the full information HERE

Its the season of Summer – the solstice was yesterday – and the summer festivals – especially Glastonbury – are about to start!

Oh I remember, I remember, being young and in love and dancing to “In the Summertime” in a crowded sunny field somewhere in 1970!

So let’s have a bit more of that nostalgia – smile – you can dance along too if you feel like it!

The lyrics – below – would not pass the “thought police” these days – but here they are!

Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh, uh
Chh chh-chh, uh, Chh chh-chh

In the summertime when the weather is hot
You can stretch right up and touch the sky
When the weather’s…
