I count myself among the many who have more than a passing interest in all things royalty. Lately I've been purchasing and ingesting huge amounts of newsstand magazines dedicated to the upcoming nuptials - just yesterday I gorged on a special issue of Hello! Canada on the train home, enjoying such feature articles as 'Kate wears plum-colored shoes' and 'Kate does her own makeup!' Yes, this is what I read and what's more, I admit to liking it.
So while news of the wedding has been everywhere and people either love it (me) or hate it (my husband, let's say, and/or everyone else I know), it seems inescapable. With that in mind, I thought I would dedicate my next couple of posts to the beautiful twosome, and to the monarchy in general. What better way to say 'hat's off!' to people I don't know than writing about it to many people I don't know?!
With the groundswell of renewed interest in and popularity of the young royal couple, another trend that has surfaced is royalty-themed housewares (you didn't think I'd forget this is a decorating blog, did you?). I love the kitschy flavor of a lot of these pieces, but I wonder how long they'll retain their lustre? You be the judge!
