Baubles, Bangles and Beads






Baubles Bangles and Beads,

Just don't lose your head over them.
Here's the story. Two crooks, one Contessa de Motte were to deliver the necklace ti Marie Antionette, The woman(Contessa) stole the necklace,escaped to London, Her partner was imprisoned. Motte removed 22 Diamonds and sold them The necklace is owned by a private collector now. Poor Marie Got the Bill and the French went wild.

.





















The Cambridge,Dehli Durbar Necklace
It was made for Queen Mary. The Emeralds
belonged to her grandmother the duchess of Cambridge.
It was made for her ACCLAMATION OF INDIA.
Isn't it magnificent?

Here's another story. The Godman necklace was given to the Queen from
two elderly spinster sisters. They claimed it belonged to Empress Josephine of France.
Jewerly isn't it wonderful.

All things English













I remember My Grandmother's English Plum Pudding
with Lemon Curd. She also made Pop Overs.
Even after my House burnt down, I always have my memories.






I would not use our flag for fabric,
we do, They have neck scarf's
purses.
I was shocked the first time I saw it.
It must make them a Buck or two.





If I could buy one I would, it would be great inside
an English Pub in the U.S












After these guys, the Kids were trying for English accents
do you remember that time?









I took so many photo's
of Big Ben.
Loved Hyde Park.









































I can still remember
this trip to England. I saw Susana YORK, in a play.
She was beautiful and Oh! so talented. I also saw Evita.































I had never seen such beautiful
Knobs in a bar, I remember each
 one was different.

 so many Statues, this was
 outside my Hotel.
