All things British

My recent trip to England had me whirling with my camera trying to capture all the wonderful architecture, fancy shops, street fashion and of course, interiors. Just thought I'd share some of what I saw, was inspired by, and what was just plain ole entertainment!...enjoy!
One of the many ceiling shots I snapped - awe inspiring detail and architecture.

Classic! Spotted at the Buckingham Palace souvenir shop.

A new addition to a century home we visited.
I love the classic modern choices.

Love this juxtoposition.
- taken at the Victoria & Albert Museum, cafe
My best discovery however was the National Trust store(s). I stumbled upon the store in Cambridge and just had to visit the London location as well. Chocked full of truly British wares at very reasonable prices, I couldn't resist walking away with two beautiful wool blankets, amongst other things. Their random wool blankets are a steal at £12 - they refer to them as 'rugs'. Luckily you can shop their stores online - and you'll be supporting a great cause.

My oh my - What imagination!
Yes, that's a person in a lizard suit riding a bike with a smaller lizard alongside.
