Happy Monday to all and hope your weekend was a lovely one.  Continuing along on the third {and final} report on our jaunt across the pond: No visit to London is complete without delighting in traditional afternoon tea.  We chose the Dorchester and were immediately pleased with the lush surroundings, the sublime trill of the piano, glasses of champagne, and the seemingly endless supply of finger sandwiches, cakes, sweets, and delicate tea. It was brilliant.  And to top it off, do you see the most adorable take-away box?

Afternoon tea at the Dorchester

We had a wonderful time visiting Tate Modern Museum where the thought provoking {and rather shocking} Damien Hirst exhibit is currently on display.  This exhibit is not for the faint of heart, so consider yourself warned.  What may appear ordinary at first glance becomes something altogether unexpected and extraordinary upon closer inspection.

Right outside of Tate Modern, we spotted our favorite artistic rendition of the British phone box that is part of the ArtBox campaign.  Adore the message: “Love Life Live Long.”

Le Petite Maison

One evening, we had a wonderful dinner at La Petite Maison and thoroughly enjoyed the most delectable scallop carpaccio and burrata.  We would dine there again in a heartbeat. Next stop: Paris.  But before leaving London, sharing one last photo of a favorite shop: Liberty, located in a Tudor-style mansion housing loads of innovative design, decor, jewelry, and fashion.  There is something so ebullient about this display, no?
