a little bit of jubilee...

Everywhere you look at the moment there are Jubilee themed shop windows strewn with red, white & blue. We've not quite gone down that road here at Boo Vake but we do have a small collection of Jubilee(ish) items (that we rather like) in the shop at the moment....

The Jubilee Jelly Mould!! Comes complete with instructions on how to get the best wibble & when you're finished making the perfect Queen's head jellies you can hang it on the wall! £10
Royal Tea bone china Jubilee mug. Featuring royal commemorative cups from the past. Comes in it's own little labelled box. £10

Woof bone china Jubilee mug. Two rather regal corgis proclaim the big event. Also comes in it's own little labelled box. £10

Those little boxes for the Jubilee mugs! All the Illustrations are by Charlotte Farmer.

Close-up from the Royal Tea teatowel. 19 different royal commemorative mugs & cups from years gone by. £12 

 Fabulous temporary tattoos. Two different packs available. £3 each  

A 'subtle' blend of two events in one with Lush's Royal Dressage teatowel. Royal malarkery in the park! Love the pantomine style horses. £11

Well there you have it! And all made here in the UK.

The morning after the night before.....not a bad way to spend it!
Myself & other half were at our friends' wedding in Kinlochard Village Hall at the weekend (a fabulous spot for such a thing (pre-midge season)). We had a really good time helped on in no small part by a nice bunch of people, beautiful surroundings, great B&B overlooking Loch Ard & a stumble upon a rather fine tearoom at Balquhidder on our amble homewards(ish). 
Congratulations Katie & Nico!

early closing on Saturday...

Boo Vake will be closing at a ridiculously early 12 noon this Saturday (5th) as I will be away at a wedding (sorry!)
(as much as I'm looking forward to it, in my mind I've already jumped past Saturday's proceedings and am firmly focused on Sunday's cooked breakfast in the B&B (these things just don't happen that often :)))
