Sometimes I find myself full of longing for a tiny bit of Lilly Pulitzer, college friend of Jacqueline Bouvier (better known as Jackie Kennedy), fashion designer and Queen of Preppiness. But this side of the pond there is just no getting your hands on a “Lilly” shift dress; as far as I know they are not stocked by Harrods anymore.
So I might have cried a little when James at Man of the 50s posted about Lilly Pulitzer animal crackers. Look at the packaging. It even has a little white strap attached to it to help little hands carrying it to the next picnic. And they are for a good cause, too!
Try and imagine my delight when this arrived:
Yay, bubble wrap!
Wow. So many!
There’s something inside.
Let’s find out…
I better try two. Just in case.
And they are extra yummy with milk!
Muuum! Stop eating my cookies!
Thank you so much, James, for sending this packet of gingerly Lilly delights over the pond, all its way from Ohio to London, UK. Thank you for letting a bit of bloggie friendship spill over into the real world, you have made our day!
I would grin from one ear to the other now, but I am afraid the cookie-crumble-saliva-mixture leaves unsightly stains on my cardigan…
