World Cup Love - Merci England

Heraldry. Legacy. History. Asymmetrical stone walls that over kilometers become symmetrical, encircling hectares of rolling lush countryside.

The land of a stonemason's dream, archeologist's best dig and a sailor's playground. All creative fodder for writers sitting in dim-lit taverns on cobbled and storied streets all over Great Britain. My favorite city? Oxford. Who can resist it?

Dragons. Crowns. Swords. Dachshunds. DACHSHUNDS!?
Give thanks to Club England for keeping the U.S. in play, and rest your head on one of these regal, hand-crafted linen pillows from HELKAT DESIGN in Wiltshire, U.K. I'm so fond of the muted tones and soft colors. Hand-printed. $44-54 each. (and here's a little secret... click the title of this post and it will take you to HELKAT's site. Cheerio!)


  1. Hey, I bet you $10 Chan will buy that Dachshund pillow.

  2. thank you for a lovely tribute to Helkats ethos... heraldry, great britain, english life with skandi twist...Helen and Hollie
