a day in east london

Two weekends ago, my husband and I went back to London.  One of our friends recently took a job there and is living the expat life in Shoreditch.  While I enjoyed our first experience in London last year, this visit was a hundred times more fun. For us, our best adventures are when we pretend we’re locals. It helped that our friend was the consummate hostess and guided us to activities she knew we’d love. My favorite part of this trip was Saturday. We strolled through several neighborhoods and went to two different markets. Our...

Two Etsy shops that are killing it

I know some people find Etsy overwhelming but I love it.  I enjoy supporting small businesses, the variety of prices appeals to me and it’s not cookie cutter. Whenever I’m shopping for home goods, I check out Etsy first. VictoriAtelier.  When I was redecorating my living room last year, I stumbled across the VictoriAtelier shop.  I purchased an original 23 x 23 oil painting for $165.  It’s gorgeous and every time I see it, I smile.  Her work is colorful and abstract (my favorite!). She lives in Spain so it took a couple of...
