Old Photographs-Japan

October 7, 2009

I do love old photographs! and I am particularly loving these Japanese ones today.  I wish I had a time machine and I could be a little fly (or maybe a butterfly-they are slightly prettier) and fly all around the old world and see all the things that now can only be see through photographs!

Hotel Pelirocco-The Pin-Up Parlour

September 19, 2009

So when we stayed in Brighton last weekend we stayed in the most amazing hotel! It was fabulous, all the rooms are themed around different things.  Of course we had to stay in the pin-up parlour room which is themed around Britain's answer to Marilyn: Diana Dors. Everyone at the hotel was lovely and I think it was very reasonably priced for the room we had.  I would definitely recommend!  I felt like a Hollywood Star!

The Royal Pavillion, Brighton

September 17, 2009

It's amazing that this decadent building is right in the middle of a British seaside town.  It was inspired by the great Taj Mahal, unfortunately I wasn't allowed to take photographs inside though.

Sorry it's been a while but I had a very hectic weekend! My very dear friend got married on Saturday and then the sweetheart and I went on a little seaside adventure to Brighton.  It was the loveliest weekend ever and I have lots of lovely photo's to share so bare with me!

 Having finished the huge pile of borrowed library books I am now desperately in need of more (seriously I got through the last pile, 8 to be precise, in a month).  So tomorrow I will trundle off down to my local library and spend a good few hours pouring over all types of books, fiction, art, cooking, interiors, before deciding which ones to cart home with me.  I absolutely love the library, I love the smell of library books, the helpful old ladies and the little children that get so excited over bedtime stories.  However my library is somewhat modern and industrial looking.  I wish I had a local library of Beauty and the Beast stature!! With a winding staircase and those big, long ladders! bliss! x

I think this might be one of the most beautiful little places in London and it has one of the best Tea Shops! High Tea in Highgate Village.
