[ a tad british ]

WITH ALL THE reports of cancelled flights in London over the past few days, Britain is definitely in the news. I'm grateful that my guy avoided it by a day and made it here for the holidays!

The Union Jack has been popping up everywhere and if you love those British touches in decor as much as I do, here's some eye candy for you - I particularly like the various subtle ones.

We've been trying to come up with what kind of image we want over our bed - needs to be something we can do ourselves - and I've been considering a Union Jack and after looking at these great images, I'm sold. Loved these!

I love a good union jack and I think it looks fabulous in all the incarnations shown here.

Love a pillow here and there would be nice!

I've been noticing that, too. I particulary like it on the dining room chairs.

I think a pillow is the perfect addition!

So glad your hubby made it home with all the crazy weather going on right now.

I love the quilted pillow in the soft colors...subtle but very eye catching!

Happy Tuesday!

LOVE this, Lisa!
Must be my British
roots....but I surely
do love the Union Jack.
A UJ pillow is on my
list, either to make
or to find. I really
liked the silver UJ over
the fireplace. Big
commitment if you don't
live in England, but if
you did....wow!
Merry Tuesday, sweet friend!

The floral calico ones are a sweet twist.

What is it about that Union Jack that makes it so chic and fresh? Love it...and most of these I have never seen before, which is really saying something!:)

I too really like the Union Jack. Have you ever spied the Shabby Chic one? I love it too! Beautiful images! Have a Merry Christmas!

I do love a Union Jack in the decor somewhere. I bought a lovley UJ pillow from an Etsy seller. It is one of the few flags you can decorate with I think.
