waking up to perfection....

28.11.12

Sorry for the lack of posts this last few days.  I just arrived here in Iceland
and have been catching up with my HUGE family :) 
There really is no better place that I could wish to wake up each day, I just
absolutely adore being here, breathing in the crazy-fresh air, bathing in the
pale turquoise pools, eating amazing food.

from Stylizimo blog featuring a very beautiful blanket that she purchased from our store 
Story North. Yes the Cross blanket by Pia Wallen is a very special item; it is absolutely 
stunning, it's very large and very cosy.  I have one and I love it, we are also going to get
