I haven't been knitting much but...
I have been crafty!
Lately, I'm obsessed with flowers
Liberty of London prints!
I was pretty excited when Liberty of London and Target teamed up last year. Let's just say, with Liberty at Target prices, I stocked up on a lot of scarves. I'm so glad I did because now I'm getting "crafty" with them.
For my recent trip to London I put together a Liberty ensemble to wear to tea. I jazzed up my Liberty for Target basic scarf with a cute pom-pom trim and now it looks like it came from a London high-street shop!
I also upcycled another Liberty for Target scarf into a big ruffled flower that I can wear as a hair pin or brooch. I can even pin it on some ruffly tulle and it makes a darling fascinator!
I can tell you now, that nothing beats wearing Liberty of London in London!
Of course, I had to wear my Liberty ensemble the day I went shopping at Liberty of London. The Liberty ladies on the Haberdashery Floor all recognized my accessories made from their famous Liberty prints.
I also wore my Liberty ensemble to the adorable tea room High Tea of Highgate in Highgate Village (outside of London) and the owner Georgina noticed my Liberty of London accessories, too. I loved that and loved the tea room, too!
Bonjour. I'm an American woman with a French name. I live in California and dream of Paris. I've been a "city girl" all my life but now live in a small city out in the county. I love to cook, adore afternoon tea and love to travel. So pull up a chair, have a cup of tea and savour the seasons with me.
I always have my camera with me.
I love my new camera, my Canon Rebel T2i.
Prior to May 2011 I shot with a compact Sony Cyber Shot and still use it sometimes. All photos and text on this blog are the property of me.
