a little lady I made...
my friend loved her daughter wearing this little leggings outfit when she was little but realised it was a bit sentimental just keeping it in a drawer so she asked me to create the material into something...
Ive been meaning to 'set up shop' doing this as Ive been asked to do this a few times now.. what do you think, feedback or ideas gratefully received !

quite a mind blowing selection of talent, I only had my phone so apologies for the quality of these photos... but these were just some of things that caught my eye...
I fell in love with a red enamelled tray, at the reasonable price of £32. 50, it was coming home with me... just before I made a total ass of myself, i realised it was £3250.. there were some hefty price tags but also huge amounts of talent..
(Apologies again for not naming the artists but there were so many separate stands from different galleries it was hard to keep references )

Visited the wonderful London town this weekend... always enjoy it...always have the same conversations about what property you could buy at home for the same price, how many people can live and travel in one place etc. etc. ; ) (more of these city prints from www.etsy.com/shop/blancucha )
Also got to the V & A where the best bit for Ruby was the 'magic' glasses she had in her kids backpack thing...see below... (she's really quite beautiful... ) lunch in the rather nice cafe where the lights and ceiling impressed me at least. Then the Science museum where there was a fab thing which was like putting your hands in water and fish swam over.. only it was just a mat... wanted one.. you know for the downstairs loo extravaganza...

not sure whats going on with the fish.. but one seems to spend his time at the top and the other just lies on the bottom.... maybe they've had words... and I've changed the water, cleaned the pump, been really careful with the chemical drops... but the glass still has a greeny hue the next morning... hope they are not on the way out already..
