Etsy Stories: A Foggy Day in London Town

A foggy day in London Town
Had me low and had me down
I viewed the morning with alarm
The British Museum had lost its charm
How long, I wondered, could this thing last?
But the age of miracles hadn't passed,
For, suddenly, I saw you there
And through foggy London Town
The sun was shining everywhere.

Listen in here and see the treasury live on Etsy here.

Our heroine Helene strolls along the cobbled streets admiring London's Chimneys.

Her classic trench is indespensible in the London Fog.
And underneath is her Screenprint dress. It's really the perfect thing to wear in this town- whimsical but quite proper too.

One can't help but notice those iconic Red Tele Booths dotted around town like roses.

A selection of floral hankies are always nice to have tucked inside your handbag.

The Tube stops have such a lovely feel in the mouth- and are striking on the wall too!

This Big Ben Print reminded her of a Madeline illustration and inspired her to take a heli tour of the city. (It was glorious- she felt like Mary Poppins up there!)

This Queen Elizabeth doll is the perfect souvenier to bring home to her seven year old niece.

At last! It's time for tea. As a devoted Anglophile, she appreciates all the accessories afternoon tea demands, right down to the demitasse spoons.

This swoon-worthy Cake Stand looks even better covered with sandwiches, scones and petit fours. Cheerio!
