London, Art, Shopping, Giveaway Winner


I have been shopping, can you guess where?


A quick dash in and out to pick up my giveaway prize.

THE WINNER



The sun was shining on London on Saturday and we decided to make
the most of it before the rain came along. 

You can see from the photos that the clouds were moving in.....



We all made the most of the sunshine.



and then they came... rain clouds.




When the rain came we dashed into the 
National Portrait Gallery to mix with the Gods.
You can read about it here.


and added a little retail therapy into the mix over here.



Hope you all had a fab weekend...
sending best wishes for a wonderful week!

  3. I love that sweater pull in that one photo. We are traveling to Ireland in 4 weeks! I am beyond excited. We will actually fly into London early in the morning, spend the day there and fly out that night. Thinking about just hopping one of those tour buses to a quick turn over the city...

  9. I love that window at Fortnum and Mason, with all the reds. Your photos of London were wonderful. We will be there soon and I am enjoying these images. Looks like we will need umbrellas!

  10. I'd like a weekend in London to shop! Instead I'm headed to Yamhill, Oregon, USA for a workshop. Not much shopping there I'm guessing! xo

  11. Wow Jeanne! I was definitely not expecting to win that fabulous F&M apron! Thank you so so much.
    Does that mean I have to cook something fancy every time I wear it? ... ha ha
