My list keeps growing

It doesn't matter how many times I've traveled to a certain place, it always seems that my list of places I want to see when I go back gets longer not shorter. Can't figure that one out? :)

Anyway these are my new most visit places next time I travel to London.

Ink Stained Hands

I've always been fascinated by type, calligraphy, and hand writing. So I took up a calligraphy class so that one day I could do work like this.



but right now all I've got is ink stained hands, shaky letters, and a realization that no matter how hard I try I can't make a straight line.

British Love


Wanting to decorate my house with a major British theme probably doesn't come as much of a surprise to those that know me. But there has always been a slight worry that somehow my future house will look more tourist gift shop than chic. But after coming across The London Cushion Company's website, that is no longer a worry. Not that I would ever spend 20 pounds for a pillow, but it showed how you can combine the british theme and not have it end up looking tacky. Plus it's given me a new sewing project as I LOVE this blanket.
