London Trip No.2

My second trip to London within the month, was purely for leisure... well I say 'leisure', it did include a LOT of walking and if you know me well you'll know I don't walk. Though this did mean I got to spot a lot of great street art (and vintage shops)... However, the major highlight of this very lovely weekend was the Kurt Schwitters exhibition at Tate Britain, where I got in for the concession price (£1.00 off!)for being a teacher... now there's a perk! This exhibition made me want to give up everything else and become purely a 'collage-ist' ... and I might, I really might. I have been thinking lately, today in particular, what's it all for? What IS IT all for????
Never mind, tomorrow I might feel I know the answer.
love these colours and marks

...nice ;-)

I ADORE this red cross
on a stairwell

beautiful detail on a mans 
shirt front, I wanted it

brick lane on Sunday

and... a Schwitters

Oh, I can thoroughly recommend the Holiday Inn, Nr Great Portland Street tube station... a central, easy spot and so amazingly  comfy beds with smooth crisp white sheets... its one of the secret regents park hotels on last minute dot com.


  1. Looks like a great trip Claire. Why did you not buy the man's shirt, just a you! Definitely going to try and get to London so much to see, so little time to get around it all. Jayne x
