I am wanting to thank you for all the kind comments about my Union Jack. See how I made it thriftily here. I had much the same reaction when I saw Miss Mustard Seed's Union Jack dresser.

What stirs our fascination with all things British? I will admit I am officially Smitten by Britain. That link is to a great blog all about the British, from their landscape artist to their funny words of the week. The media often puts Britain in the spotlight and right now you can watch The King's Speech, follow the news of the royal wedding, or shop the new Cath Kidston website. Beware the Cath Kidston's site could be addictive! I had been admiring her look from across the pond by way of her UK website. So, here they are again invading our soil with just as much electricity as The Beatles. It will be a big year for British fashion in the home.
As luck would have it, if you have a popular product the copycats aren't far behind. I stumbled upon this lovely little set of dishes in TJ Maxx this weekend. They look suspiciously like something from the Cath Kidston line. These dishes are by 222 Fifth pattern New Country.
The book pictured here is from my collection. It is The New Kitchen Garden by Anna Pavord, English garden writer, editor, and television personality.
The other book, Images of Britain was published by the British Automobile Association, also from my collection.
So, pour yourself a spot of tea and sit back and enjoy the show. When it comes to fashion, all the world is a stage and Britain is front and center.
