Aren’t they beautiful?
The first time I saw this display in an All Saints store, you could’ve knocked me over with a reel of cotton. How did they manage to get that many? (The top photo only shows about a third of the display). Are sewing machines, like, cool now? Would they let me have one?
I was in Bluewater last week, and walked past yet again. This time, being a good little blogger, I had my camera with me and snapped away… while Mr B avoided being associated with me by looking intently at watches in the shop opposite.
One of my usual shopping hits is the haberdashery department at John Lewis, where I wander round stroking all the fabrics (again, friends and relatives tend to pretend they don’t know me) but not this time. Ladies and gentleman, I think I have been cured by the Walthamstow shopping frenzy some weeks ago. There’s just no going back after scoring a 22″ zip for 40p at a market stall.
So instead, I indulged both my sweet tooth and interest in interiors at the Cocoa House (I was trying to be surreptitious, so photos are not the best quality. I was also a little bit high on espresso.)
And… a wall of teacups! Totally feeding my growing Alice in Wonderland obsession:
Now, just have to convince Mr B to let me do the same to our front room…
