The Olympics start this week – go patriotic with a UK tutu!

I’ve recently added a special section to the www.TutusWingsandPrettyThings.com website celebrating the olympics with a selection of pretty tutus – there’s a patriotic England flag tutu, ‘olympic rings’ rainbow colour tutus, and plenty of red-white-and-blue costumes as well as supporter tutus for every other country you can think of!

And best of all, every tutu on the website is available with FREE delivery this week - Use discount code ‘OLYMPICDEL’ to get free delivery on as many tutus as you’d like and celebrate the Olympics with us!

The Olympics are coming – another chance to get the bunting out!

As you know, I really enjoyed the Diamond Jubilee weekend earlier this month and got into the full swing of the celebrations! And now, the Olympics are upon us and although the opening ceremony is not til the 27th July, the excitement is already revving up in out local area because the Olympic torch is arriving here tomorrow!

Of course this means that all the bunting is being put back out and the union jack is flying high once again, so I’ve had another look around the internet for more Olympic-inspired designs to get my home ready for London 2012! After a quick browse online, I decided that this was the essential item that I needed: an Olympic floor cushion!

30 inch x 30 inch Olympic Britain  

Now, I’ve just moved into a small bungalow and space is a bit tight at the moment and don’t have much in the way of seating - I only have a sofa, so if more than 1 visitor comes round to watch the Olympics it’ll be standing-room-only. So maybe a couple of floor cushions would do the job to provide a couple of extra seats?! This cushion is 30 x 30 inches so is a pretty good size and I reckon that the thick fabric would be fine to use outside as well. The UK online shop that makes this British-flag design is JustFloorCushions.co.uk and they also have lots of gorgeous bright bolster cushions in crazy patterns (seriously, there’s more than 200 fabrics to choose from – mindblowing!).

I think my house could definitely do with brightening up and I’m hoping that hubby will agree and let me have access to his wallet for a quick online shopping expedition haha! What do you think of my cushion choice above?? Are you excited about the Olympics too? leave me a comment below!
