I have an ongoing love affair with the UK. We had the great privilege of living outside of London for 3 years, back in the 90's and I love, loved it. I drove on the other side of the road, I ate ploughman's lunches in some of the most wonderful pubs. I developed a taste for Guinness, and most of all I loved the gardens.
I love Laura Ashely, and miss her , here in the states. I know that's all out of fashion now, but who cares? The photo above is from a shop which reminds me of L.A., I would love to shop at Cabbages and Roses, I think I'd do a lot of damage there to my checking account..
I watched the end of "Little Dorrit" last night on PBS with this *ahem* actor (Matthew MacFadyen) as Arthur Clennam, sheer delight.
