The Dolls where so fascinating, i was thinking who had owned them ? The more primitive wood dolls where so sweet.
We then went on to Portobello Market in West London.
Hey Evie and Nora Cats what you doing here ? :)
It was really interesting but very busy - you could hardly move.
Lots of quirky antique stalls, some rather yucky fur coats stalls !!
Foods from across the world, handmade clothes and jewellery - lots of talent tucked away, so many things, i could have spent all day wandering.
I just Love this next photo....
We spent a lot of time in South London where my Husband is from - on his birthday he wanted to go to Manzies
One of the oldest Meat pie cafes in London - a restaurant would be pushing it in description.
Meat Pies are very traditional - have you seen Sweeny Todd ? I thought i would hate it but the pie and liquor was tasty - the liquor is parsley sauce ( i had a few mouthfuls as rather hefty in the calories)
Its served with mash and you sprinkle chilli vinegar on !
The inside of Manzies has not changed in years
Our last Day in London we went to a west end play called 'Blood Brothers' at the Phoenix theatre, that was amazing and a wonderful end to a fascinating trip...so many ideas for new paintings, especially inspired by the Toy Museum and the wanderings in London.
I hope you have enjoyed a peek at my tales of London.
What do you think of the dolls ?
