Sunsets & Palm Trees

30th June 2017

In June, we took a fabulous vacation to America. We got a bit snap happy, so decided to share some of our fabulous photos with you all, and discuss a few places we went, since we’re now suffering from a terrible case of post-holiday-blues.

Flying into LAX, there’s one obvious option for the first day of the holiday… Disneyland.

Our top Walt Disney quote: ‘Why worry? If you’ve done the very best you can, worrying won’t make it any better.”

There’s few places that hold the happiness of Disneyland – with every staff member uber friendly and every ride and song being joyful, it’s one of those places you can’t help but smile whilst visiting. Our top ride is Pirates of the Caribbean – though try go after the fireworks if you can, otherwise if you queue it can take hours of your day up! You also must go visit It’s a Small World and sing the whole way round!

The next morning, we travelled to Huntington Beach. We’ve been here the last few years, and it’s a great spot to visit to walk along the beach, walk in the town and watch the surfers from the pier. There’s also Ruby’s Diner at the end of the pier where you can enjoy a shake or some food whilst watching the sea at all sides.

Next – another happy place of ours – Palm Desert.

Summarised: sun, palm trees & flamingoes.

It’s everything you’d think of a desert – incredibly hot. We stayed in a hotel we recommend to anyone who will listen – J.W. Marriott Desert Springs. There’s lots of pools, golf courses, incredible restaurants, a mini boat ride around the resort – the list goes on. If you ever get to go to Palm Desert or neighbouring Palm Springs, it’s well worth it – you can even go to Elvis’ honeymoon home or Frank Sinatra’s home. There’s one or two icons who have lived here: Barry Manilow, Liberace (apparently his master bedroom is so huge one tour guide said you could fit a small house within it!) Ann Miller, Dean Martin and Loretta Young all had homes here too!

Our William Morris Golden Lily tote bag was perfect for the pool side – able to carry down hats and suncream that we really needed – and a good book for when the shade was our best friend. It also carried about some friends – an inflatable flamingo, a black swan and a white swan, who floated around in the pool next to us carrying our drinks!

Next up on our adventure was the Grand Canyon. We got the train, ‘The Grand Canyon Railway’ so that we could enjoy the trip without driving and enjoy the cowboy theme of the day. Being in the Wild Wild West, the cowboy show and the cowboys racing along with the train and hopping on board seemed really finished off the day! The Grand Canyon itself doesn’t even look real – like a painted backdrop!

Our William Morris Brother Rabbit tote bag was necessary for many many bottles of water, cameras and sun tan cream! Look at all the cool cactuses near it!

We drove down Route 66 singing multiple versions of the song!

Next up… Monument Valley!

In Utah, lies Monument Valley, we went to stay in The View hotel, one of the cabins which have a view out onto Monument Valley. Taking a jeep tour of Monument valley and being showed round by a man who grew up there, showing us their traditional homes, which plants were used for shampoo and which for toothpaste as well as the poisonous ones used in darts which would put any enemies to sleep was incredible. We also got to see mustangs and carvings on the walls near where homes used to be to show the stories of that family and community. Hearing our tour guide playing traditional Native American instruments was an indescribable experience and we can really see why it’s such a spiritual place for so many.

Finishing it off by another stop off in Palm Desert, we finished off the most fabulous holiday by floating on the pool in a flamingo float!

We'd say Morris more than succeeded, with timeless designs and words, it shows true beauty and art will never age 🌿 Morris wrote this quote in "The Well At The World's End: Volume I." Have you ever read much of his poetry or writing? ✍️

A little fabric stack full of William Morris floral magic 🌿
Is anyone else a little excited that it's only 100 days until Christmas... or is it too soon to talk about? We're quite excited for Christmas crafts, food and films! ☺️ We wonder what your favourite Morris design is? Does it change based on season? 🎄 (it's far too early for this emoji but we're excited and can't help it, sorry.)

A close up of our beautiful licensed William Morris Trellis 😍 Isn't it such a timeless design, it was first designed in 1864, inspired by the rose trellis in Morris's garden at beautiful Red House 🌿 It was the first wallpaper Morris designed, along with Daisy and Fruit. 
Because the three designs were produced using a hand printing process, each colour needed a separate block and for the three designs it was 12 blocks each so was a long and expensive process. Therefore, they were all put on hold until the early 1870s when Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & co. had enough money to finance the designs 🎨We love the Trellis design, currently our tea towel is hanging over the cooker - we always wonder if Morris could ever have foreseen that his design in 1864 would be so well loved all these years later? 🤍
