We're back in Houston now for the holiday stretch, but before leaving London, I immersed myself into as much Christmas spirit as I could. It's always so festive in the city, even earlier than the States because there's no pause button for Thanksgiving to push. The stores are full of ornaments for the picking,
and the shelves are full of Christmas magazines. Am I the only one who could just spend oodles of pounds and dollars on all the festive publications this time of the year?
Make sure you have your London themed stockings,
and your royal crackers,
and don't get caught waiting too late to mail your letters to Santa!
The selection of sweets this time of the year are ever so tempting,
and almost too pretty to eat!
I debated about this gingerbread Tower Bridge
and Big Ben, before deciding they might not survive the air trip home.
We wandered Regent and Oxford Street for a little color and lights,
and found ourselves a wee bit perplexed about the Oxford Street sponsors this year--
Marmite--You Either Love It or Hate It.
Where do you stand on that question?
Always a favorite, we loved the sparkly windows of Selfridge's
and as a special touch, a Gingerbread Selfridge's complete with the Queen's Corgis.
