Yesterday

We made our annual trip to Tent London yesterday. Battling Bertie’s pushchair through thick crowds of Shoreditch ‘trendies’ and inhaling various around-the-world cuisine aromas; which made me very hungry, so we got two vanilla custard doughnuts from St John Bread & Wine. Oh my, they were delicious (I didn't eat both)! The best doughnut you will ever taste in my opinion.
Anyway, we made it to Brick Lane and had a pleasant browse around this year’s show, which I feel didn’t live up to previous years...but again, that’s just my opinion. It was great to see Famille Summerbelle there, and lovely to watch Bertie playing with Miller Goodman’s famous shapes. He wasn’t keen on leaving the table (he kept saying “mine, mine”) but a rice-cake bribe did the trick!
After this, we stepped back into our spaceship and flew home....(referring to the Gherkin there, in case you didn’t get me...I’m so hilarious.....). I hope your weekends were fun and you have a great week. I turn 33 in a few days. Yikes! :)

  2. I visited Tent last year and was gutted that I couldnt make it again this year, but you saying it wasnt as good made me feel slightly better about missing it! Looks like the trip would have been worth it though just for those doughnuts! yum!x

  26. umm that is sad, I only saw Tent when it was still setting up and i thought it had a lot of good designers and products this year, in fact I had to rush to set up my pown stand at 100% design and left as if I wish i was exhibiting there instead. I can not complain i had a very good show myself, but I will defenetly consider tent for next year, still one of my fav.

  28. You managed to make donuts look good! And donuts are my least favorite food on the planet, along with Brussels sprouts.
    Those flower pots are so damn cute!
    Oh, and thanks for featuring me on your list of October list!

  31. Everything here is so perfect. I myself want to play with Miller Goodman's playshapes- although my son Presley would probably enjoy them as he is older as well!
