My husband's roots go back to England and therefore we love anything British.
(especially a great cup of tea)
I know the ole Union Jack is one of the latest ubiquitous fashion statements, but I will always love the look, even when it becomes passe on the design blogs.
For all you Anglophiles, I've gathered a British assortment for the day:

Precious vintage serving spoons from Wooden Hive.

Limited edition giclee print of an original illustration, from Orange Studio.

I love a great china tea cup, but sometimes you need a mug for that tea!
Brookish designs this cute mug.

Charming tea cozy from a fellow Austinite Diane Tubb Designs.

Handsome Union Jack cuff links for the stylish lad in your life, from Blink Photo.

Andrew Martin from the UK, has recently launched a new line of fabrics with a British theme. The fabrics are a beautiful upholstery weight with brilliant graphics.

A large vintage Union Jack flag from Pin Tuck Vintage would look smashing mounted in a black frame:
I LOVE this funky take on the Union Jack pillow, in grey and kiwi green,from Pop Britannia by Karen Hilton Designs:

Dress your sofa or wingback with some fab canine friends from Designer Cushions.

Dress your rocker dog with this cool collar from Nola & Spencer:Now, if you're really lucky, dress your house with this cool Brit!

All the best,
