It was my birthday and I went to London (again) and got excited (again)

We started off the day visiting an art gallery

This sculpture (Swarm by Tessa Farmer) is incredible.  Tiny skeletal fiends sitting atop all sorts of hand crafted insects.  I took lots of photos and youngest son Benjy thought it was hilarious to jump into view every time I pressed the shutter (and to be fair it was quite funny)

More swarm photos

After all the arty stuff it was time to get down to some good old shopping in the west end.  I managed to find some inspiration for our shop, at Top Shop, of all places (how common)

You write a message and post it through the bird box.... I want one!

Hanging vintage tea cups.  I don't know why, or what for but I want this display in our window.  I may have to copy it.

Anyway that was a bit of my birthday



  1. Sounds like a nice day! Those tea cups look great!

  2. Happy Birthday! It looks like you were sufficiently spoiled--hope it was a great day. :)

  3. Thank you for the birthday greetings x

  4. OOh!! Happy Birthday..again! I want to start looking for you need a window display artist?!

  5. Harry, I want to start looking for teacups too, and yes, would love a window display artist, aka you, to help tie bits of string on the handles, I mean artfully arrange them into something quite splendid!

  6. Oh belated happy birthday! That teacup display is good. Very good. Not entirely sure about the tiny demons riding on a dragonfly though!
