A stroll through our neighbourhood from Westbourne Grove to Portobello Road is just bliss. Although it has been a little dreary outside, the candy coloured houses, luxury boutiques and buzzy eateries means that this little piece of London is fabulous no matter what the weather or season. We love autumn and cannot get enough of it. Dividing my time between two children and nurturing this blog feels like a juggling act most of the time. I'm beginning to realise the importance of a little time with each of my girls on their own. With this thought in mind, Gabriella and I headed out during lunch for a little wander and a chat along the way.
Now that we are in the depth of Autumn, we enjoyed wading through thick piles of crispy leaves. Towards the far end of Westbourne Grove as it meets Portobello Road we stumbled upon the most stunning, striking bright red fallen leaves. As many as possible were collected and joined us on our journey. Stepping onto Portobello Road is like stepping onto inspiration road for me. I want to photograph everything, everytime. it seems not to matter that I've taken these photos only a million times before.
Isn't Alices just delightful? I love the vintage treasures that you can find here. We spotted a crate full of eye catching vintage russian dolls. I've always loved them. Perhaps it is because I never actually owned one as a child. Note to myself, 'I must get one each for my girls'. I also have my eye on a few things for the house, I must return minus children, to make purchasing decisions.
The display of vintage teacups, teapots and saucers outside Alice's is beyond words. It left me wishing we had a kitchen large enough for a welsh dresser. I wanted them all. But, if I had to choose I think I quite like the blue and white. Which would you choose?
