I know that i have just posted about the v and a... but look at this fabulous hat! £35 from the gift shop - also in black and brown. lots of other fifties-style goodies, including really sweet hankies.

I am totally immersed in this most wonderful book, A S Byatt's 'The Children's Book'. Set around the Arts and Crafts movement, featuring South Ken in the early 1900s. It is wonderfully descriptive of an unusual and artistic society of the time - potters, jewellery makers plus trips to the Paris Exhibition and Germany. Pick it up if any of this excites you.

Here is a review from the Guardian which explains the narrative far better than I am able to!
