london sun (part two)

1 August 2014

after the having tea and cake at the nurseries (see previous post) we headed over to Nunhead to see Jo and Rosalie's pop-up shop called 'Our Shop'. We had a lovely cup of tea in one of those stonking gurt cups!

littlun had a nap in the carrier for a while which was nice for us.

I love all the things Jo finds and makes, we have quite a collection of goodies at our house.

and now the tortoise comes in dark green!

(I bought the cushion on the bottom)

it wasn't long before she woke up and started playing with everything.

and then she discovered some choccy coins, and that was that!

this shop is open for about another month so you will need to get in gear and get over there! And you can follow all of Jo's work on her website here *

after that very relaxing interval, it was back to London traffic.

We also made it to Victoria Park area of London, with yet again snoozing tot. This place is very smart and affluent village in London, where even the estate agents looks like an art gallery.

some very nice cafes and shops, especially good for kids, (we bought those little mustard coloured shoes in the window!)

a really nice place to spend an afternoon if you are in the vicinity. Of course it helps when the sun looks like this...

We have been travelling around a lot these days, and I am sort of looking forward to spending some time pottering about at home. I feel truly summered, and recovered from that dark, drizzly winter.


  1. Gosh that shop looks amazing. I would love the chance to see it before it closes and get some bargains. Your little one is just beautiful x

  2. Gorgeous photos. I'm kinda feeling like I haven't summered enough!

    Quick question, if you have a chance ... what lens are you using in this post? Is it a wide angle or zoom?
    I'm using a 50mm at the moment but think I need a 35mm for more landscape, travelling and lifestyle photos.

    Happy weekend!

    Do you know what those little dolls are made of? They are so cute. I took my little miss shopping for beads the other day and her favourite part (amid a bunch of shimmery shiny beads) was carrying the basket around!

  4. That blue and white platter is just gorgeous! I want to top it with a roast chicken or some mini strawberry shortcakes! Love all your summer posts!!!

  5. Kids get the best stuff. Those shoes are amazing!

  6. What's the restaurant with the yellow window? I would like some fried chicken when I get back to London!
