Well, this concludes my show and tell of our trip to London. We really enjoyed our time visiting Nicole, and the photo of her standing in the entrance of the B&B, slightly breaks my heart because we hated to say goodbye :( Speaking of the B&B, here are some photos I managed to snap of the place. I really loved our stay there, and the owners of the place were really nice. It was decorated really tasteful and it was SUPER clean. I was jealous of all their beautiful house plants and those gorgeous wide planked floors in your room. Like I said, if you ever find yourself in this neighborhood, I highly recommend this place. The daughter, in the kitchen picture, made the best cooked breakfast, and every morning when we started down the stairs, the lovely smell of toasted bread and other things she was cooking, would hit you. They also had the jams that I bought in the photo above.
I had to snap a shot of our taxi driver that took us to the airport, because he was so friendly and regaled us with many stories about Somalia. He took us back into Kensington to Whole Foods, where I had forgotten that wicker hamper that the jams are in.
The last pics are of my treasures that I bought. I'm excited about my new scissors and fabric the most.
Hope you enjoyed my tour, and I didn't bore you too much :) I gave myself a break this week to get things organized in the house and do all the trip laundry, but on Monday I start to so some cutting and sewing. I'm going to start with some more hats, and hopefully a few little outfits, before all the holiday craziness begins. I'm not going to stress out about filling the shop for the holidays. In a dream world, I would have many pieces sewn already, but reality is that I just can't fit it all in and I'm going to do my best to have some special pieces to offer.
On that note, I wish you all a great weekend.
