London wander

Butler and Wilson's window
Chocolate dipped strawberries for sale in Selfridges
Pink pause in H&M home store on Oxford Street
Liberty print gift wrap in Liberty
Once in a while I like to look at the big London stores to see what they have. My mother, who came from Nottingham called this 'getting your eye in.' 

This means looking at beautiful, expensive stuff so that when you are in cheaper stores (or charity shops) you recognise quality. As you get older you realise what you like best and they say that if you only buy what you really love your house will look right because everything in it will be your own taste and therefore fit together. 

The only place I parted with money in today was H&M. I bought a pale pink velvet cushion cover for £6.99 and a small wire picture frame for the same price. I love pale pink at the moment...
