Tucked away treats


I've discovered some wonderful little shops in Rome. The first as you can see is a specialist glove shop. It's run by an elderly lady just down from Piazza Venezia. The gloves are all hand made and the selection of styles and colours is amazing. A little note in the window says that gloves can be sent all over the world, and you don't have to pay until you receive them. Now that's what I call service. The second shop I spotted was one that sells upholstery trimmings, some definitely from the 60's and 70's - the sort that you can never really find in modern shops - fabulous for bags and belts. I might be tempted!

Oh my God, Mary Jane, how cool is that? A month in Rome! I envy you! Fabulous! And it sounds like you are staying in a lovely place with wonderful people surrounding you... Well, now I know why I haven't been able to reach you for a while! So glad it is because you are on an adventure. Well, I will be back in London in December to check on an adventure of my own that I might embark on... Hope to see you then! All love, Katharina xxx

Loving your blog MJ! Hope you're having a fab time. Sorry I didn't get around to coming out to visit. Can't wait to hear all about it. Am keeping my eyes peeled for cashmere jumpers. Hoping I can place an order for Ellie and me- I was thinking matching pink?!

Thanks again for The Ritz - so fantastic. Will need to go again so start saving your pennies as next time you and Tone are coming with me! Take care Hxx
