Surprises From Mum...

 ...and Dad Burt, too!
They sent me a box of souvenirs from their trip to England and France!

 Mum always knows just what I love.
Of course, there was a Diamond Jubilee commemorative publication...

and a Queen Elizabeth II dvd (narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier!).

I had mentioned to Mum that I'd seen an article about this 
line of British face cream that I thought she might like,
and I was tickled that there was a jar for me in the package!
I hope it helps me achieve that British "peaches and cream" complexion.

 Handsome collects (and wears) baseball caps, so there was this
really great (and soft!) cap from their trip to Paris.

 I specifically requested a Jubilee tin to go with another old one
that I have had for years. (I'll show you that another time.)
Mum found this one that came with English breakfast tea.

 The top and sides are also decorated with additional images and words.
It's perfect - just what I wanted - and I love it!

 But, the biggest surprise was a corgi pillow!!!!!
Squeeeee!!!!
I did a happy dance when I saw this beautiful pillow, and now
Taggart will have proof of his royal roots!

Thank you, Mum and Dad Burt.
What generous gifts - and wonderful surprises.
I know (Shell)...S.P.O.I.L.E.D...again

What lovely gifts you got. They must have had a blast being in England during Jubilee time. I bet that tea you got is just delicious too. :)
