London treasury

My friend Linda and I came home late yesterday night. We had a wonderful business and pleasure stay in London!
I opened my suitcase...so happy with my small treasures!

Of course we went to Orla Kiely in Covent Garden and yes, I did buy some notebooks. Can't have enough of them, because they keep my dreams, plans and ideas, of which I have a lot! So, this was a very necessary purchase, hi, hi!
The white gift tags (1,59 pounds for 10) come from ordinary stationery supplier: Ryman. I bought enough for all of my gifts in the next 5 years, I think. Love that place: even missed my flight two years ago filling my suitcase there!

The vintage german cloth pegs, the cotton thread and the white blackboard pencils (for tiny messages!) are all from Labour and Wait on Redchurch Street.
And these stunning retro looking glass tiles come from Anthropologie on Kings Road. The store was literally breathtaking. We just walked around with our mouths open, we could hardly speak...The building, the collection, the assortment...wow!

  1. Genieten! Reisschatten zijn zo fijn, ik verheug me in dat opzicht (en dan alleen in DAT opzicht) in het thuiskomen van onze nog komende vakantie. Toevallig maakte ik deze week zelf gift tags voor mijn open winkel... ik voel je vreugde met je mee ;-) Groetjes, Rozalinde

  4. Nu ik je notebook zie moet ik meteen aan je numph t-shirt denken. Precies dat printje. Heerlijke aankopen. Antropo. Is top! Ik heb daar vorig jaar voor een prikkie een stoffen letter S gekocht.
    Als ik de tegels zie krijg ik meteen zin om m'n emaille -oventje te pakken.
    Ik wil nog alles van je horen.
