A foggy day, and London town (sorry Ella)


It's been a foggy day and I'm feeling like a real homebody. I think it's the backlash from my lovely Saturday in London with Caroline. It was the perfect Autumn day for strolling around the capital, shopping and yakking. I love walking in London - there is just SO much to see and take in, amazing architecture, great people watching, street vendors selling chestnuts, oh yes, and shopping (we did VV Rouleaux, Cath Kidston, Emma Bridgewater and a newsagent stocking Marie Claire Idees in a single street). Caroline is as charming in person as she is in blogland and I can't wait until we get together again.

I've also got a lot of stuff to play with at home, since a parcel came from Laura at the end of last week. The boys are busy with their new books. I am the proud owner of some original stamps and stamped stationary and the funkiest post-it's known to man.


We made a batch of leaf biscuits this evening for dessert and I'm cooking up some plans for this fabric.

And .... prepare to hyperventilate ..... this!
Thank you so much Laura - you've really hit the spot with these lovely goodies. I may not emerge for some time...

That would be enough to keep me indoors and cozily crafting away!

Another guess for Marylebone High St here! I love it there. I go on a Saturday when they have the farmers market too!

I love that holly stamp! My middle name is Holly and that is exactly how it always looks in my mind. You can't find them to buy like that though. :-(

Ah, that fog would make me want to stay home and sew!

I miss big metropolitan cities. It's been a while since I've walked through a busy city. Of course, with kids, I'd be very paranoid that I'd lose them. Maybe I'll go one day when we're retired.
