a few scenes from Notting Hill

It’s been a while since I’ve taken you on a walk, hasn’t it? :) Well that’s about to change! I squeezed in a few visits to London’s wonderful street markets in the past few weeks, so I’ll be showing you my favorite scenes. First up: Notting Hill. I was enjoying myself too much, and trying to avoid bumping into people too much, to snap many photos, but I managed to catch a few sweet scenes. So come along!

First up, on my way there – more elephants!

Portobello Market is so crowded, you wouldn’t believe it. This was a quiet spot.

Close by to it, a shop selling antique doorknobs. Well, it was one of those cheap souvenir shops, so I think we can confidently say these are not antique, but I do love the sight of them…

Doesn’t it just make you want to have loads of colorful doorknobs lying around your house? :)

Then, if you get hungry, you can eat a slice of pizza from a car inside a shop.

And finally, on our way back, not an elephant, but a different beast.

Hm, some people do have an interesting concept of art. Or is this meant to keep the burglars away?

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.
