Pop-In@Nordstrom: Liberty London

I’ve blogged about my love affair with Liberty London before. And so you can imagine my delight at seeing Liberty London’s home decor and giftables available stateside — at Nordstrom’s Pop-In Shop! Items range from gardening tools to stationery to clothing.

Here are also some other pieces that I have my eye on:

A cornershop

I spotted this on sho & tell blog and had to share! Lucy Sparrow’s Cornershop resembles your average Spar shop or British news agent, but all the items are hand knitted! Take a look!

Land of Nod goes British

I’m always on the hunt for sweet and inexpensive wall art for my kids’ rooms and stumbled upon Land of Nod, which currently has some great decor with some British flavor (and also a great blog for inspiration, Honest to Nod).

Cheerio Personalized Wall Art

Check out their personalized wall art ($129), featuring Big Ben and double decker buses, which can be personalized with your child’s name.

Twin Lately Lily London quilt

I also loved their Lately Lily London quilt ($189), with an appliquéd and embroidered London scene, which would work perfectly with … their Lately Lily London bedding set!

A radical tea towel

Brits love their tea towels. I’ve blogged about it before.

But now, a British company has given tea towels the radical treatment, featuring tea towels for feminists, vegetarians, liberals and activists. The Radical Tea Towel Company produces tea towels made with Panama cotton, or 100% premium cotton. They will deliver by first class post in the U.K. and by airmail to the rest of the world.

Here are just a few examples!

They also offer these – so you can select the Tube stations that mean the most to you:

It sounds like a dichotomy, but a limo driver has supersized his Mini Cooper, transforming it into a 27-foot-long stretch limousine.

No British party would be complete without these decorations, courtesy of Chickabug. Items include bunting, water bottle labels, cupcake wrappers and toppers, and thank you cards. Jolly good!
