This post was planned by Darrell and Nigel while they were in London, especially for Dianne our beloved friend and daily commenter who lives in torridly hot, but still romantic Florida, knowing that she would just love a little peep in Liberty’s, be it in a second hand type way.
And, we have to say, it is just a very, very, very beautiful and unique shop…….
……. with soooooooooooooooo many beautiful things to stroke and imagine where you might put them in your own humble abode.
Inside it is truly stunning and robustly sigh inducing for someone as aesthetically in touch with his inner erudite self as Darrell!
Before entering through the portals Darrell had to warn Nigel if there was anything he quite fancied but it didn’t have a price on, then he most probably couldn’t afford it ……
…. finding anything for a pound was highly unlikely, but perhaps, he might be able to find a postcard perhaps as a souvenir………
……. but to be honest just looking was a wonderful experience to embrace, especially on behalf of Dianne.
Darrell wouldn’t have been Darrell if he hadn’t made a couple of notes on possible interior design tweaks for The Towers ………
Nigel said that Darrell sighed a lot …… and then completely out of the blue asked him if he fancied breakfast, his treat ……..
……. “life was just too short” he said “not to partake in the finer things in life …….and then be left wondering”
Well, what could Nigel say to such the unexpected offer of “Breakfast at Liberty’s”, but “Mais oui!” ………..
So a pot of proper tea served with buttermilk pancakes, maple syrup, blueberry compote, crispy bacon, fresh blueberries, was duly partaken of and eaten in most demure and gentile type fashion ……..
…… with Darrell promising to try to replicate something similar one Sunday morning while we listen to the omnibus edition of The Archers when they got home, if he could find the recipe. He had to admit he wasn’t really 100% about the feline cruet set (other animal cruet sets available on other tables) not being a pussy sort of person …… but perhaps a tasteful novelty cruet set might be something they could look for on a future adventure.But, it was agreed, that it had been perhaps, quite possibly, one of the nicest breakfasts they had ever had …… and then Nigel said, Darrell did some more sighing.
