That was thoughtful 🙂
We do our best. 🙂
Not many of those sent out, the next is 105 😀
I’m sure she’s going to make the next one too. 🙂
Thanks, Inga. 🙂
She must of loved that!! 100years is quite amazing really!! Did she vote in the Zim elections by any chance!!! 😉
Yes she was absolutely thrilled. We also bought her an original August 4th, 1913 Daily telegraph newspaper. It’s fascinating to look through and see the news and advertisements on that day. 🙂
a true heirloom!
That was some gift ! I can´t fathom that she is 100 years , she looks much younger at your photos of here ! // Maria 🙂
Yes she does look really great for her age, Maria. 🙂
A really well-thought-out gift! It looks superb. I hope she was really happy with it.
Thanks, Col. She was really delighted. 🙂
Such a treasure to have that card and to be able to have it framed so beautifully must make her so happy!
Thanks, Suzanne. Yes, she was thrilled. 🙂
That really is fantastic Sylvia!
Thanks, Phil. 🙂
Really a wonderful gift ad 🙂
She was so thrilled with it. 🙂
Thanks, Gilly. 🙂
Beautiful frame! I missed to ask (or you already told and I missed). Is it a tradition that the queen sent this letter to a person who live to 100 years?
Thanks, YC. Yes it’s been a tradition in England since 1917. It started with King George V. 🙂
I love the queen even though I’m all the way over here in Atlanta. I would cherish this gift, as I’m sure your MIL does!
That’s good to know, Elisa. The Queen is a very gracious lady indeed. 🙂
I bet it will be displayed in a prominent spot to remind her of the wonderful day.
My mum made it (exactly) to her 96th. I wonder if our president would have sent her a card if she had hung on another 4 years. Probably not, we’re just not that cool!
Yes it’s already up in the entrance hall. This tradition started with King George V in 1917, so it’s been going on for almost a hundred years. 🙂 We British are very cool indeed. 😆
Long live our Gracious Queen! And a big hug to your 100 year “woman of the century.” I am celebrating!!!
What a superb comment, Rebecca! Thank you for your enthusiastic hug. I will pass it on to our ‘woman of the century.” 🙂 xx
How wonderful!! Your mother in law must feel so special! 🙂
Thanks, Madhu. Yes I’m sure she does. 🙂
Absolutely beautiful! What a lovely gift 😀
Thanks, Dianne. Yes, she was really thrilled with it. 🙂
This is such a stunning and special gift!! Love that the Queen sends out letters for people who reach 100!!
Thank you. Yes, it’s a wonderful British tradition. 🙂
Love it Sylvia.
Thanks, Jo. 🙂
A wonderful gift for a tremendous milestone bday!
BTW – I love the title of this post. It sounds dramatic & like a title for a mystery film or novel.
Thanks, RoSy. The title came to me in a moment of inspiration. 😀
Quite a frame worthy card!!
Yes, I would say so. 😀
Awesome!!! Wonderful gift!!!
Thanks, RV. 🙂
How nifty! And it’s beautiful.
Thanks, TBM. 🙂
Very nice pressie! 🙂
Yes, she was delighted with it. Now the Queen is ensconced on the wall in the entrance hall. 🙂
Love the clever title! Congratulations!
Thanks so much, Cathy. 🙂
How nice to own!
🙂 Thanks, Dallas.
Excellent gift. How fun is that?!
That’s exactly what we thought, Gemma. 🙂
A very special gift indeed. 🙂
We felt that the card needed to be displayed properly. 🙂
She loved it. 🙂
The English are so lucky with their traditions, AD. Lovely Card and frame.
Thanks so much, adee. This is a lovely tradition. 🙂
The Queen deserved it! 🙂
Hahaha. I think you’re correct about that, John. 🙂
Surely this Card from The Queen found it’s place of honour – belated congratulations.
Thanks so much, Carina. 🙂
cool! it is beautiful. ♥
Thanks so much, Sunshine. 🙂
Oh wow this is just beautiful for Mom… I bet she is thrilled…
Thanks, bulldog. Yes she is very thrilled. 🙂
What a honor! WOW!
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Yes it is, Francine. We’re so proud of her. 🙂
Oh wow, I’d heard that she’d stopped doing that. Congratulations! 🙂
Not at all, Lance. We can all aspire to receiving one, but maybe it will be from the King and not the Queen. 🙂
Very cool, my dad would like that..:-)
Thanks, Ed. 🙂
Wow …. 100 years old – what a fantastic thing. My deepest and happiest congratulation to your mother in law. Beautiful acknowledgment from the Queen. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much, Viveka. 🙂
Thanks, Stefan. 🙂
How cool. She must have been so happy!
