Sunday 16 August: Laura Ford at Strawberry Hill House, Westminster Cathedral & Pauline Birthday
Strawberry Hill has always been one of my favorite gothic fantasy to visit but seeing it filled with Laura Ford sculptures really added another dimension. Mixing animals, humans, fairytales, creepiness. That library is already a gothic explosion but add dead knights on the floor , the dancing clogs girls were just so beautiful and i wanted to take sorrow filled cat home with me.
A great afternoon of showing Simon and Helen one of London little gem. Although still not sure about some of the refurbishments.
Afterwards we popped in Westminster Cathedral as i think such a undervalue place to visit, crazy on the outside as inside with all the different style, being so recent (well for a church) and all the mosiac bling ceiling( unfortunately i lost all the photos )
Right opposite was Paulina Birthday at La Tasca restaurant, not impressed by the food or service but great company.
the day of judgement
love the library
sorrow filled cat
waldegrave poodles based on painting that used to be in the house
