The Wonderful Wallace Collection

The Wallace Collection is a dazzling must see affair.  This handsome building on Manchester Square had its walls lined with fabric and the most amazing arrangements of art, furniture and armoury.  And whats more it is totally free.  A must for any Nic-Nak enthusiast.

Looking back at London.

Being back in London is always great and having lived and worked here about 24 years ago, its nice to retrace places and friends from all of those years ago.  So a trek out west to Southall and Ivo Prints my place of employment back then is a necessary journey.  Although it was a quarter century ago, the  printworks is still going strong and producing wonderfully crafted, screen printed textiles.  But as could be expected,nearly all of my old workmates have moved along. 

British craftsmanship is still strong in wonderful enterprises such as Ivo Prints.
