I think jet lag has finally caught up with me so I’m taking the night off. Or maybe I’m exhausted because I walked (and shopped) all over the city today. I’m loving London overall but one of the highlights was being overwhelmed with options at Fortnum & Mason for gifts for myself and others. But what I really love is the signature blue green color that is referred to as “eau de nil” or Georgian Blue. It’s the color that I most associate with London. I picked up a few things in the shop but I have a feeling I will be placing a big online order when I get home since my suitcase isn’t big enough for the picnic hamper, or the china, or the giant tins of tea. Or maybe this just means I need to plan another trip next year.

As enticing as Mariage Freres -although I think I prefer their chic black tins.
I say plan a trip again next year! It’s always nice to have some sort of excuse, although travel does not require one. I was in Europe in the springtime and reading your blog is bringing back all of the wonderful memories. Enjoy your time there!
The Bond Street London Flagship Hermes store has the “petite h” exhibition/ collection of 1500 items made from from eg offcut leather or rejected scarves. Prices range between £50 – £50000. Happy shopping..
That canister is lovely and the blue.. gorgeous! Have a happy thanksgiving abroad!!
