they followed me home
On Friday, I flew home from London, having had the most wonderful time. While I was there, my wallet got a bit lighter, but my luggage became significantly heavier. While I'm editing and going through all of the pics from my trip, I thought you might like to see some of the lovely things that followed me home.
Above is a little wooden set that I got at the Tate Modern (which you also see in the set). There's a great story here, because the first set I bought was missing a piece, and we had to go back a second time to get it fixed. It involved a boat ride though, so Katie and I didn't mind too much!
Katie introduced me to MUJI, and I got this scarf and dress which came in the form of tiny cubes. So fun! (And I just discovered that they make the LEGO punch that I have)
And then there were the crafty things that I bought.
Ribbons and Trims? Check.
Tapestry Cotton (which I've not seen around here)? Check.
Buttons Covered with Liberty Fabric? Check.
Cath Kidston Fabric and Book? Check.
Now, here's where I need to ask you all a question. If you are in the United States, do you know about Cath Kidston? This was a new discovery to me in England, and I feel like I've been living under a rock. No matter. I got this little booklet in the newspaper while I was there, and also picked up some very charming fabric, perfect for remembering my trip by.
Oooh....So many fun things to enjoy, and so many good things that I'll be making soon!
