Saturday was a craaaazy day for photography, I took so many! I had a friend over so we did some touristy stuff (it had been a while since I touristed around London, I had missed it!), then the Loop party, and then more random wandering around Angel… To put all that into one post would be a total overload, so you’re getting it in bits. And today, we walk around Angel. If you ask me, Angel is the London mecca of craft and magic. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself… ;)
Very soon after I got off the tube, I ran into this charming vintage shop with loads of dresses. I’ve promised myself a dress for each exam I finished, and I’m at 3/5 so far. Most of them have been cheap H&M type stuff, but I’m determined to get at least one proper vintage one in there. This shop seems like a good place to look!
Then right next to it was a furniture shop. These very-British-indeed chairs lured me over.
But what really kept me there for a while was this printed fabric dress form. Now, I live in student accommodation. I don’t know if I’m even going to be living in this country in a few months. And I don’t sew. Yet I can’t get over this thing. I want it so bad it almost makes me cry. :( Isn’t it gorgeous? The cast iron one isn’t bad either!
Moving on, if you want to set up a whole dining room in antique style, this little street market is the place to go. Antique plates.
And antique spoons! I’ve noticed people have a thing for antique spoons! I don’t really understand it, though. Are they that valuable? What’s the deal? Help me out if you know. :)
Finally, you can always count on London for providing interesting shop decoration… I’m pretty sure this one is not for sale. :) And the fact that he is holding a donation-collection box makes my smile at seeing him even broader. :)
I hope these made you smile! And while you’re smiling, hop over here and enter the giveaway… ;)
