Button Wednesday : Diamond Jubilee



It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I never knew that Queen Elizabeth had something with buttons .... well maybe she doesn't and it's just coincidental :) Anyhow, needless to say I like it a lot !
A lavish red velvet banner decorated with a version of the royal coat-of-arms made from more than half a million gold-colored buttons hung from the stern of the royal barge which was taking part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee pageant along the river Thames. It was designed by Ann Carrington, based on the London Pearly Kings and Queens, and has taken a team of talented seamstresses four months to sew on half a million golden buttons with 31 miles of thread.
