Diamond Jubilee

I grew up and went to school in Windsor and my parents and family still live in and around the town. I've been a spectator at many State Visits and events - from my school days to the recent State Visit by President Sarkozi. 

As a child we marched two by two from school to the Long Walk to stand and wave our homemade flags.  Mum was a teacher so I got roped in as a teenager to help out when she took her class to see another State visit and I took my son as a child to see numerous events.  When it was the Queens Silver Jubilee we went to see her light the first beacon next to the Copper Horse at the top of the Long Walk.

So to celebrate the Queen's Diamond jubilee I thought I'd post a few patriotic items from my Just K Jewellery shops
