Be the First on Your Block

One of my favorite catalog stores, The Vermont Country Store, just thoughtfully sent me an opportunity to buy a commemorative plate to celebrate the birth of the soon-to-arrive new prince or princess.  Of course the plate will be pink for a girl and blue for a boy.  Delivery is promised in October.

Or maybe I would prefer a mug instead.

I would love to be in England right now, anticipating the royal birth along with everyone else, whether they care to admit it or not.  I understand William, the Duke of Cambridge is even now on duty as a rescue pilot while he awaits the birth.  He gets two weeks off when the baby is born. Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, is no doubt getting a little impatient like all moms everywhere. Even anti-Royalists must wish this new young family well. I can only imagine the cornucopia of commemorative items in British markets right now.  I’ll resist, though.

On the other hand, The Vermont Country Store offers a lot of other hard-to-find British products…like old-fashioned Jelly Babies.  Hmmm…
