My favourite things at the moment: vintage toy soldiers, summer on the Southbank, our new kitten and London Open house 2014.
- Looking at vintage finds online, in particular these toy soldiers, I want, I want, I want….
- Leafing through the guide to this years Open House London, top picks so far are Crystal Palace Subway, The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and Battersea Power Station.
- The new best thing in the room, our newest edition to the flat, Dinah the kitten, so named after Alice’s cat from the Wonderland stories and Dinah from Rosamund Lehmann’s Echoing Grove. Cue cute kitten sounds:
- Strolling along the Southbank before the Autumnal chill begins to bite. Always something interesting to catch the eye, my favourite of the last few years is this RIBA award winning boat hotel on top of the Royal Festival Hall entitled A Room For London, if I were a rich girl I would surely book a nights stay there:
