I’m waiting for my son Joseph to arrive in London. I’m so excited I can’t stand it! I had plans to attend a museum but felt distracted and decided to walk to a famous department store instead. It’s Liberty of London.
I had no idea this department store was so elegant! Among all the chain stores in the area Liberty appears: a half timbered treasure! Everything inside was absolutely sumptuous. The scarves had my attention and held it. I couldn’t stop reveling in the rich patterns and fabrics.
I finally pulled myself away to find which level houses the yardage. Liberty is famous for its fabrics that quilters and seamstresses covet. This was a good option for me–since I can’t afford anything else in the store and have absolutely zero room in my suitcase! I settled on a delicious fabric called “Earthly Delughts” to make a scarf. I purchased half a meter for £25.
I couldn’t resist cruising through the shoe department as I left. It appears that heels adorned with jewelry is a thing. I better get my gluegun out when I get home.
I also visited Flying Tiger, a Danish store that got my attention recently–and it’s priced for you and me. The Danish are so clever and creative with their designs. Consequently, I wanted to buy everything in the store for my grandchildren! I settled for a couple flat things I can easily mail and a silly pair of reading glasses for me.
I had a bite to eat at Leon, which in my opinion is elevated fast food. I had a breakfast sandwich at their Heathrow location a year ago and bought their cookbook as a result. If you like reading cookbooks, I recommend it. It seems like the older I get I enjoy reading cookbooks more than making the recipes!
