macaroon tea

on our flight home from Switzerland last month…

wonderfulawesomebrilliant Switzerland…

we had a stop over at Heathrow Airport in London…

as sweet Margaret pointed out...it’s a shopping opportunity…so we decided to make the most of it…

I got some royal wedding magazines…along with the Heathrow ‘freebie’ magazine that had my name on it…oh India!!!

many years ago my sister…quite the world traveler…started me out on my first Harrod’s bag

since then I have gotten to add to my collection a wee bit…

the oil cloth makes them very sturdy and handy…

with so many designs and sizes to chose from…they were having a little sale at the airport Harrod’s….

I am also a fan of pretty boxes and this is where the macaroons come in…there was a pretty green carriage style cart at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 that really called me…not sure why I didn’t take a photo of it???..

the macaroons were tasty but truly the packaging is what spoke to me…that pink of the rose flavored biscuit looked a bit artificial to me…but each one was very tasty…

there were lots of flavors…we chose two of four different ones…Ladurée is credited with inventing the double decker macaroon…I think I was happiest with the pretty box and bag…

Happy T Tuesday to one and all…you can visit Kimmie for lots of fun tea links

  4. Wow, those Harrod’s bags are lovely. I must do an internet search to see what I’ve been missing. I’m with you on the macaroon bag and box. They look much lovelier than the macaroons. Lately my taste for coconut has changed, so they don’t appeal to me at all. But I can see that box landing in several art projects.

    BTW, I saw your comment to Halle about rusting fabric. Glad you rusted some. Hope you rinsed in soda water afterward. Can’t wait to see what you rusted. You have so many lovely old fabric and lace pieces to choose from. Have a lovely Tea Tuesday.

  13. Patty,
    What a lovely post! I love your purse collection. I didn’t even know they existed so now I can crave something more! I have always craved Laduree macarons and was positive they would be the best thing I have even had in my life but no longer. That’s probably a good thing. Life has had some really difficult moments and have been longing to write to you more but it’s so complicated that I can barely explain!
    Sending you love anyway!

  25. Those Harrods bags are great! They look sturdy enough to take to the market. The solid green one reminds me the most of Harrods. But now whenever I think of Harrods I immediately think of Princess Diana.
