The ribbon was bought in France and the notepaper is from France too.....my daughter found that for me when she was in Bordeaux recently. She knows me so well. The glass buttons, in the cabinet.....they are also from France but the boxes with pins and tailors chalk are from a very restrained shopping half hour in Liberty last week. I am so proud of myself for mostly resisting temptation...it could have been so much worse. John Lewis supplied the glass jars for my buttons and puffs......I suspect I will soon need more of those.
I cannot wait for tomorrow, Thursday.....it marks the end of my wandering. It marks the start of a reclusive few weeks when I will not leave the house. That's the plan...here's hoping nothing scuppers it.
