“I am not your Elizabeth. I am no man’s Elizabeth. And if you think to rule, you are mistaken.” (Elizabeth, 1998)
Last night Jane and I made a trip out to the IKEA in Emeryville so I could get some much needed items for my apartment. After shopping, sushi, froyo (yay TuttiMelon!) and then assembling all of my stuff whilst watching my Yeah Yeah Yeahs concert DVD, I was still wide awake by midnight. I spent an hour or so perusing the vast world of Etsy. I often forget about Etsy when I’m looking for new things for my place, or pieces to add to my wardrobe. These roundups will be a way to keep Etsy fresh in my mind, and hopefully will inspire and encourage you to buy handmade goods as well!
I give you the Queen Elizabeth I roundup:
Your Queen Elizabeth I collection cannot be complete without her siggy, or, autograph, if you will. You know you liked all of the commas in that sentence. Anyway, according to this Etsy seller, From an early age, Elizabeth Tudor was praised for her literacy and artistic penmanship. Like her father King Henry VIII she signed her name succeeded with an “R”. The R stood for Rex, which means “King” in Latin.
Tyra Banks seems to have made the term “regal” hip and cool, along with the concept of smiling with your eyes. Adopt the regal look, literally, with this costume pattern.
I’m not sure if Queen Elizabeth I would be caught wearing a ring made of resin, but she was all about purity, right? White, purity, it works. Plus, this ring is cute.
And there you have it! I’m off to work on a dress project. Will post it when it’s complete. Happy Saturday!
