Eventually got to see the film, The Help which is based on Kathryn Stockett's book of the same title.
It's mainly about the racial imbalances of 1963 in southern America. It's a powerful film, with funny and sad moments....excellent acting as well. Having read the book and enjoyed it greatly - this film certainly doesn't disappoint.
A very kind friend of mine gave me this lovely soap and soap dish for a present (from Mathilde-m) - she knows how much I like white things!!
Wouldn't it make a lovely wedding favour?
I must 'get my finger out' and start offering wedding favours. We could so easily produce tags personalized with the bride and groom's name and tie ribbons around soaps to make a wonderful wedding present that will match our handmade wedding invitations and stationery.
It got me thinking ....how did royal blue get its name?
According to Wikipedia , royal blue is said to have been invented by some millers from Frome, Somerset. They entered a competition to design a dress for the British queen, Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (the wife of King George III).
Royal blue is traditionally described as deep to dark blue with purple or faint reddish tint.
