Happy Monday! I hope a good weekend was had by all. The weather here in London town was beautifully sunny. On Sunday I went to Kew Gardens and it was glorious to be outside, surrounded by the beauty of the gardens and to spend time with my good friend Jane. I also went there to check out the Handmade at Kew event, which is an international craft event with over 150 designer-makers displaying their wares. This included ceramics, jewellery, fashion and textiles, glass, paper, furniture, metalwork, sculpture and interior accessories.
Wallflower London was one of my favourite designers, with beautiful ceramic flowers that can be hung on the wall.
