The Wedding of Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall

Another Royal Wedding Today

Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall

Zara is the daughter of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips. Mike is a rugby player. Kinda looks like a boxer, doesn't he?


Before "the dress" lets look at the famous relatives


Sophie, Countess of Wessex

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

The Duchess of Cornwall

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth

The bride's mom Princess Anne with the groom's father. I love the skirt but the jacket looks like a sofa cushion cover.

The bride with her dad, Captain Mark Phillips

"The Kiss"

"C'mon honey, there's food waiting!"

Pink Saturday - July 30

You've probably heard that Elizabeth Taylor's home sold for $8 million a couple weeks ago.

Please join me for the tour courtesy of Architectural Digest


The living room. Imagine a white carpet!

A wall in the trophy room where she kept family photos, humanitarian awards and her Oscars. So much better than displaying the Oscars in the bathroom like some actors claim they do


The dining room


The dressing room. The wallpaper is embroidered-silk!


The dressing room


The master bath


The bedroom. Her parents pictures are on the shelf



Elizabeth at her desk

A little bit of paradise






Elizabeth's nephew, Christopher Taylor tiled the pool and designed the shell-shaped fountain at the far end.




Happy Pink Saturday! Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting our weekly meeting.

The Mystery of the Earrings - Part 2

Way back on June 14 I published the post below

Why does everyone make a big deal when a Royal wears the same item of clothing twice?


The Duchess of Cambridge circa 2009 at a friends wedding

Here she wears the same beautiful blue brocade coat with a blue dress and blue fascinator to the service celebrating Prince Philip's 90th birthday. Personally, I like this look the best. But the whole point of this post is to point out the earrings.

Sapphire surrounded with diamonds hanging off of what looks like a diamond stud. Could these be Diana's earrings?


The drops are removable. Maybe Harry got the stud part (no pun intended!) And William got the drops.

A prize for whoever solves the mystery!




Tamara Cohen in an article on Mail on Line, states that yes Prince William did give his Duchess his mother's earrings.





Tamara states that Kate had them remodelled into drops. Nope, I still think Prince Harry got the stud part!

Guess I get the prize! (Even though Kate got the real prize!)

Pink Saturday - July 23

Isn't it wonderful how women around the world love pink?

Danish Crown Princess Mary looking lovely in Pink while attending the wedding of Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco. Hard to believe she had a set of twins in January. (Do you think there is a pair of Spanx under that dress?)



Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting this wonderful weekly meeting of Pinkettes.

Thanks for visiting.

Pink Saturday - July 9

I would like you to meet Diamond Marshall.

Diamond is 6 years old and lives in Calgary, Canada. In December she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Sarcoma. Since then Diamond has had two life-saving surgeries and has spent nearly a month in intensive care.

Diamond watched the Royal Wedding from her hospital bed. She said her biggest wish was to meet a real princess one day. She wrote the Duchess of Cambridge a note. That's when the

went to work.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived in Calgary on Thursday.

Diamond ran up to the Duchess and thrust a handmade gift and flowers at her.

And then Diamond ran back to the safety of her stepmother's arms.


The Duchess coaxed her back and after a small chat

they gave each other a hug.

(pass the kleenex please)

Thank you Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturdays.

Have a great week. Thank you for visiting.

Pink Saturday - July 2

It's Pink Saturday and I have looked everywhere for some PINK!


Didn't find it on Kate.


But the Duchess of Cambridge looks smashing in her red hat with the Maple Leaves in celebration of Canada Day.

I checked out the civil ceremony of the wedding of Prince Albert of Monaco to Charlene Wittstock. No pink on Charlotte Casiraghi, the daughter of Princess Caroline.

No pink on Princess Caroline

No pink on Princess Stephanie

And no pink on the bride or groom. Now back up a minute. This was a wedding, why all the glum faces? I'll tell you why.....they forgot the PINK!

Thank you Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday.
