LONDON

The time has come to share some photos and experiences from our amazing adventure!

Starting where we did...in London Town!


Once we hit the ground (after a lovely scenic flight over the city) we headed off down the Thames...first stop the Houses of Parliament!


King Cross Station...heading off to Hogwarts




Liberty of London with some lovely ladies trying to get in on the action too!


Liberty from Carnaby Street 


Feeding the birds at St Pauls


On the Millennium Bridge - Beware of Death Eaters






Fans of Nikki Heat will get this one! At the Tate Britain





Highlight

ALL OF IT! It's hard to pick out one highlight from London as it was all amazing...so many great galleries, shops and adventures to be had!

Low-Light
Not find any Hello Kitty Liberty at either Shaukat or Liberty....to Etsy I go!

Favourite Crafty Destination
Shaukat was excellent...I only got 2 different prints...and since have been haunted by one I almost got...and keep wishing I did...especially after seeing some dresses made from it at Liberty of London...so I might have to order some in hindsight!


The one that got away - Liberty Picarde

and my haul:







Favourite Arty Destination
A tie between the Tate Britain (with an excellent Picasso Show) and the National Gallery and the Portrait Gallery (a brilliant Lucian Freud exhibition)...the most amazing find was a painting of me hanging in the National Gallery:



So freaky and so awesome!


Interesting Tales....
