A welcome diversion is taking on newsletter production duties for Victoria's Government House Friends society, a very industrious group of people who are instrumental in maintaining gardens, tea room, heraldry and costume museums at our provincial Lieutenant-Governor's residence.
I was pleased that the first issue I've been enlisted to work on required a graphic to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Elizabeth Regina, that dear dear girl. It was my pack-rat-moment-to-shine as I hauled out my 'Brit' stash, including a beauty of a commemorative magazine, where I found this sweet little graphic, a teaser for some scans to follow… The photo is a Pinterest find via this tumblr blog post of Feb. 6, 2012. Breaking my No-Tumblr rule just this once because it is such a sweet photo. Wish I could provide proper attribution, though. Maybe Cecil Beaton?
