On Friday I went to London with a friend to take photographs (it rained for most of the day), eat and shop. We popped into Tatty Devine, Covent Garden only to be confronted by these kitsch beauties (available in two sizes of brooch and a necklace). I love! And as you may already know I am quite partial to kitsch 70s siamese cats.
I also fell in love with this mini white Diana, complete with flash, in the Lomography shop in Soho. Too cute for words. So I will stop.
We visited the BP Portrait Award 2011 at the National Portrait Gallery. Venus as a boy by Wen Wu was hands down my favourite entry. This tiny photograph does not do the beautiful painting any justice. It is stunning and may have even inspired me to reconnect with my paint brushes. Watch this space.
Sorry, just one more Tatty Devine beauty - the Bambi brooch - and no I am not on commission!
Looking forward to my next trip..
