a stroll in Angel.

3 April 2010

We haven't had much of an Easter holiday thus far...we have been floor laying in the new workshop, and today we put our tools down and made a quick rush to Farrow and Ball in Angel, before they closed.
We bought some paint for our kitchen table and a few other things. That paint shop is ridiculously posh, it looks and feels like an expensive perfumery!{about the same price too} I felt out of place in my working clothes.

Beautiful colours though!
We walked back to the bus stop, and saw some things that I love about London.
Like little passage-ways lit with Victorian lanterns.

Superior dwellings.

We looked around in amazement that some lucky B**tards actually live there!

 In London, you are never more than 100 yards* from a park.

...with beautiful trees!

and I'm always amazed at these incredible Victorian London pubs, with there elaborate etched windows and partitions. I found these ones with birds in, particularly interesting!

We walked down Camden Passage towards the market and found a few stalls still open.

With empty pockets, I was a bit scared to look through all these clothes.

...but, O no! I couldn't help it, and I fell in love with this Pigeon skirt! But I couldn't have it and I had to wrench myself away with force.

I just can't seem to get away from the market these days, I am ADDICTED.

Nice vintage wedding dresses and such like.

I didn't go in here, I know it would just end in tears.

But we did go in here! I got a free sample of this perfume, that made my day!
In fact this shop makes a perfume called Artemisia, nearly my name!

S0, anyway, that was our short walk from the paint shop, to the bus stop.

I hope you are having a lovely Easter holiday... I am half way through painting our shed, I hope to have it finished in a few days so I will be posting photos soon! Now I just need to rest {and eat chocolate}.
