Despite what The Daily Mail would love everyone to believe, a good majority of people in the UK are not rabid fans of the Royal Family, and are not really that fussed about Harry and Megan's big day.
That doesn't mean we don't love our country though, so I thought now might be a good time to promote my grungy, vintage-look Union Jack design - which is also available with the ubiquitous "KeEp Calm and Carry On' slogan.
Of course the design is available on mugs, so you can enjoy a nice cup of tea whilst feeling massively patriotic, your heart bursting out of your chest with pride, as you dunk a few biscuits. I suppose you could drink coffee from the mugs if you really have to...
If you want to watch 'The Wedding' wearing UK-themed apparel, head over to my Redbubble store, where you can buy Union Jack Tops and T-Shirts. Now you can look suitable British while you dab away tears of happiness with a handkerchief bearing the Queen's face.
And of course, British punk was the best punk, so if you want some Union Jack bedding, wall art or decor - head to either REDBUBBLE or SOCIETY6 and shop to your hearts content.
Oh! And if you want UK-themed/Union Jack party invitations, head over to my ZAZZLE store for fully customisable designs.
Rule Britannia! Stiff Upper Lip! Bring Me More Tea! And so on and so forth...
God Bless America, and all who sail in her...
The design showcased today features the American Flag, the Stars and Stripes, with an aged, vintage, grungy feel.
Are you feeling patriotic? Are you already mentally planning for 4th July and all the associated celebrations? Maybe you are in the US Military or are part of a military family? Maybe you have a son who will be heading off to college soon and are desperately looking for suitable bedding/dorm room decor that is not naff, and will immediately win him friends? (No pressure...). Maybe you are going on vacation or to a music festival and want some USA themed travel accessories?
Before you ask, I don't sell this design on what I believe Americans call...fanny packs...AND I NEVER WILL!
You can buy this design from either my SOCIETY6 store or my REDBUBBLE store.
If you are in the US, just order from whichever site you prefer, but if you are in the UK/EU, please note that a lot of Redbubble's products are manufactured and shipped from within the UK/EU, so you won't get any surprise customs/extra postal charges. Society6 will refund any customs/extra postal charges for your first order from them though - so if you want something from them and it's your first order, don't panic. There's more info. about this on my ABOUT & FAQ'S page.
Both sites sell a lot of the same products, but there are some slight differences. REDBUBBLE offers the design on a larger range of apparel, so you can buy US Flag t-shirts, tops, tanks, dresses, skirts and leggings.
Both sites sell the design on duvet covers and wall tapestries, however, SOCIETY6 also offers the design on pillow shams and comforters.
When it comes to throw pillows/cushions/floor cushions the sites offer slightly different purchase options:
SOCIETY6 - All their throw pillows come complete with cushion pads. The standard indoor cushions are available from 16' - 24' and the water resistant outdoor throw pillows are available from 16' - 20'.
For floor cushions you can choose either a round or square shape and there are two size options: 26' and 30'
REDBUBBLE - You can buy throw pillows (indoor only) from 16" - 26" and can buy the cover only, or the cover and insert. At present they offer a 36' floor cushion cover - but you will have to source the cushion pad from somewhere else for now. Although they do hope to offer the option of a cushion pad ASAP.
For accessories, head to either site, but backpacks are only currently available from SOCIETY6.
Have you seen my Doodle Line Art pattern yet? I drew it by hand and it's my favourite!
The print/pattern is available in over 50 colors, (coral being the latest) and suits a massive variety of room styles:
Clean & Modern (but not boring!) - yes
Minimal, with an accent color - yes
Scandinavian style - yes. the pattern compliments clean, uncluttered but cosy rooms while providing a bit of interest.
Mid Century Modern - yes. the curvy, swirly pattern and clean lines go so well with all things MCM. It's modern but retro and I have some really cool colors available.
Bedrooms, living rooms, dens, snugs, nurseries, beach houses, conservatories, indoor cushions, outdoor cushions - yes, this print is perfect for them all.
Are you looking for a certain color palette? I have them all covered - neutrals, pastels, brights, darks, desaturated colors and retro colors. If you want a color I don't currently offer, just let me know and I'll sort that out for you.
If you are wondering where you can buy my delightful print from, I shall tell you:
SOCIETY6 - for the whole range of decor & accessories, from throw pillows (indoor & outdoor), to curtains, comforters and bath/hand towels.
I especially like the fabric SOCIETY6 use for their throw pillows, or cushions as we call them in the UK. The cushion (pillow!) inserts are also really fat and squishy - there will be no mean, pathetic, lifeless pillows/cushions when you order from S6!
REDBUBBLE - most of the decor, plus a slightly bigger range of apparel. At REDBUBBLE you can choose to buy a cushion/pillow cover without the insert if you are just looking to refresh your room.
REDBUBBLE is also great for us folks outside the USA, as they have European manufacturers too. That means a lot of items (please check REDBUBBLE before ordering) are made & shipped from Europe, so you don't get slammed with extra fees - especially the extortionate Royal Mail 'handling' fees. Although it should be pointed out that SOCIETY6 refund extra shipping costs/fees for your first order.
ZAZZLE - if you are Zazzle devotee - maybe you have Zazzle Black? - then I sell this print as cushions/throw pillows, duvet covers and fabric. On Zazzle you can choose from cotton or polyester covers, with or without zips, and indoor or outdoor.
SPOONFLOWER - if you want this pattern as a large scale print, head over to my Spoonflower store, where it is available on a vast array of fabrics and as wallpaper. Their sister site ROOSTERY also offers this print on home decor.
