Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic London Store

I dragged Christian to see Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic Couture store on Kensington Park Road, London. We had a wonderful Sunday morning stroll the sun was out and we walked past so many stunning town houses playing one of our games of choosing which one we would love to live in if we won lotto.

Loved the window of an antique store with its big vintage union jack we walked past on our way to the Shabby Chic store.

Never had a tourist photo of me standing next to a letter box before :)

Fortnum & Mason - Inspirational Store Displays

Whilst in the UK in July on my whirlwind 2 weeks visit I did mange to pop into London a couple of times and just had to stop by some of my favorite streets and stores. There is none finer the splendid Fortnum & Masons on Piccadilly Street who's windows are always stunning.

We just had to stop and have lunch in the restaurant as the food is fabulous and there is no better lunch in London, if you ever get to visit do try the rosemary is scrumptious. I love the finishing touches and the lemon wrapped in muslin to stop pips falling into the food was just perfect. I had a pan fried fish on a bed of mint peas and ham, Christian had the mash potatoe wrapped scollops....they were divine.

The candy bar is mouth watering, so many delicious sweets to choose from its almost impossible to decide, well nearly almost impossible ( the fudges are a must) :)

So Busy

life is certainly busy at the moment what with traveling back to the UK for Harrogate Home & Gift and now we are back in Australia again we have so much work to catch up on as well as renovating the house. I so desperately want to move in to our little house but it is going to be a long while yet before that can happen as you will see in the photo below.....

Yesterday was my birthday and I though I should take the day off and have a tea party with my friends and so Sunday night I spent rummaging through all my packed boxes in the garage for my vintage cups & saucer, table cloths, bunting, trimmings and cake stands to decorate the table. We did have fun and far to many cupcakes :)
