Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking Kit ROMA


From Shepherd's Bush, this is Roma's Christmas Stocking.


"Roma was our British aunt who generously opened her door to a homesick student one Christmas holiday. I was so pampered and cherished for 2 weeks - celebrating an old fashioned English holiday and roaming the Devon moors with my Uncle Bert, that I had a very hard time returning to school in January. And a Christmas season that I so dreaded spending away from home, was one that I will always remember fondly." - Tina Richards Herman, designer
