Pearly Queen a Very Talented Mum

I don't know if all of you will know of this rather interesting phenomenon that occurs in England but as you know my background is British as my Mum was born in London and thought she might like to take on the task of creating her first pearly jacket! For those of you who are not familiar, this is a HUGE undertaking and takes hundreds and sometimes thousands of pearly buttons to create these very elaborate articles of clothing that they wear: Below is an entire society or Pearly Kings and Queens... Aren't they spectacular!

The London Pearly Kings and Queens Society

My Mum has just about completed her first Pearly Jacket with the exception of the steeple on Big Ben. It has taken many many hours to create this sensation which includes ripping and resewing to make things lay out just right.

Bravo Mum! I think she has done an absolutely splendid job of this Jacket... One for me next A Mum! LOL!

Notice that the Big Ben time is set to around 3:00pm... tea time in England! Attention to detail... the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as they say! I wonder how many buttons are on this coat?

Don't forget also that I have a Free Giveaway of a mini Seraphim Bear ~ FIZZER to be drawn on Canada Day July 1st so just head over to the post and leave me a comment if you would like to have a chance to win!
