toy museum

.
Still in that January funk, husbondo and I went for a mooch around Spitalfields on the weekend {again}.

i love that area of London, it like proper London, I could imagine Sherlock stepping out of this barbers. In fact, {i couldn't get a photo} the barber is wearing a black bow tie and waistcoat with rolled up shirt sleeves...Guys out there, look and learn!

some urban street cat maintaining its crown jewels...

actually it must cost the better part of a million squid to live here, so although you'd imagine this cat to be riddled with fleas and living on chips, it probably eats Science Plan and has its teeth brushed daily at the vets.

anyway, enough of the locals, here is the Toy Museum!

this is on my intellectual level.

I love these 3-D theatres and such like, I'm thinking they would be great for displaying our jewellery.

some familiar toys that frequent the Bucket Tree!

im also inspired by old mechanical toys for some reason, think I might start a collection! {oh no}

I liked this alphabet board very much, and also this toy shop...

after all that excitement, we had some food at the Old coffee house {which is called something else now, but I forgot what!}.

we came up with some new ideas for the business and what we are going to do this year...all i can say is...watch this space!

Happy February Peeps! X

  1. Happy February to you, too! I do believe a trip to the Toy Museum would pull me out of any funk I was in. That place looks amazing!

  4. Amazing, thanks for posting! I am trapped inside during another HUGE snow storm in Maine. This makes me feel like I got to get out today and see something! Great photos!

  6. Those wooden circus people are beautiful. I'd be there all day, drooling over the old letters and numbers.
