I love Liberty of London. Always have. From cosmetic bags to headbands, you could always find the pretty, tiny floral prints in my style arsenal. Masses of tiny flowers designed in bright color combinations have been a staple of classic British design since the 1930's. The distinctly British flowery prints look as fresh today as they ever did. Three signature prints can be seen in a big way in a recent collaboration with Nordstrom, where they are featured on everything from coasters to towels and teapots in the Liberty of London Pop-In Shop.  Available thought August 2nd the curated collection can be found online here and in select shops. There are a host of very British items in the assortment, like tea cozies and egg cups, with many of the cutest items in the all-over stylized prints offered in the red leaf and berry Tana print, purple floral Betsy and flowery sprig print, Theodora.  Below, some favorite items selected from the huge debut.

Lets begin with the showstopper. Few things have as much charm as this tent adorned with the classic floral. Against green grass or a mountainside, this (real) tent by Field Candy with its red-hued presence would send out happy vibes. 

Trays! Can you ever really have too many? Didn't think so. 

A durable surface and cork back give this set of 4 hard placemats wear and tear ability. Just the thing for kids.

I have a thing for fabric covered hangers.  I just love the way they look hanging on a rod, so pretty and cheery. Liberty has not let me down, as this puffy printed hanger with a bow is perfect. Same as it ever was.

A hand towel makes a nice gift for a weekend guest, or in your guest bath

Travel preparedness for comfort is key, so I never travel without an eye mask. Jet lag is to be avoided at all costs. This printed eye mask is on my must-buy list.

This may not be the most pragmatic option for a suitcase, but it looks cute

Chef or not, look better while being domestically inclined

Good gardening gloves are hard to find, but when they are made by a country that invented great gardens, they are worth investing in. This version in canvas has a flowery trimmed cuff.

Ballet slipper brand London Sole has been working with Liberty prints for some time, so its good to see them in the assortment
