Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities and tea with reptiles [Nov. 24th, 2014|05:52 pm]

Sunday 23 November

Cooked a full English breakfast to our guests ( I could never run a B&B), it was hard to get motivated with the awful weather but we finally headed out to the East end.
First stop was Denis Severs house, I love it but I have visited it about 5 times so we let our guest enjoy the experience whilst we popped by Spitafield Market (as always too many nice things and ended up with a new hat and simon with gas mask ring and some very wacky sunglasses) I do like that market small but always full of quirky and independent sellers.

Collected our visitors, did another lap of the market this time for them to be tempted…next we attempted to go and have coffee at the Bridge Cafe for some Rococco goodness but sadly it was closed (not sure why) , so went onto our next destination Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities. I love this place so much and it has recently been redesigned.

The Viktor Wynd's Little Shop of Horrors has now become a bar/cafe and downstairs "museum" just has even more stuff…love it full of weird dolls, taxidermy, skeletons, Sebastian Horsley stuff, Tessa farmer art work, a definite new addition is a coffin table where I sat opposite a lion in a hat and underneath a mermaid….i want my house to look like that one day . As fab and eclectic as always
Tea upstairs was also an experience as the next table had some reptiles to meet and pat…so we had tea with snakes around our necks, chameleon on the flower display and the best the cutest bullfrog trying to escape :)
Back home around 4ish for light lunch before our guests left for their long drive home…and for me to beat Simon twice at Carcassonne .

Today i had tea with a lion in a hat under a mermaid
