Etsy Window Shopping: Queen Elizabeth I Roundup

“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!

    the “R” stood for Regina, which means “Queen” in Latin

    As an american teenager I took a collegiate English Literature course while still in high school, and my teacher had the poster from this movie hanging up in her class.
    It would eventually lead me to both rent and purchase the movie myself and lead to a life long fascination with English Literature, for which this Queen championed – many even speculate that her large endowment to the William Shakespeare theater was due in fact to her being his mother.
    Either way, I write this while looking at the same poster from my youth, still enamored. Mostly by Cate Blanchett’s haunting gaze, but also because Queen Elizabeth I really was the greatest Queen of England, if not for her Act of Uniformity (and I saw this as a former-Catholic)
    Because honestly, “Can any man, in truth, service two Masters and be loyal to both?”
    However, Now as a Jew I don’t necessarily believe that should be the case for modern day Israel/Judea
