Jolly Good Times

 On the second day, we ventured over to the famous Portobello Market (us and a million other tourists).  While it is major shopping/attraction, it was totally worth it! Of course they prey on tourists, like us, but... 
 We loved this art booth and bought a piece or two. 
 Ventured into this amazing men's clothing store where all of the walls are covered in metal scaffolding with vintage sewing machines lining the walls. It was an architectural masterpiece! We made our way to a few auction houses...
 Hoping this finds it's way above the mantle at the house in the mountains... waiting to hear from the auction. 
 Some more killer pieces from Lot's Road Auction. See here...

 We purchased this for the house from Portobello market and it was almost too big to fit into the cab.
 This piece of art needs a new frame, but was a gift to our hostess (who loves peacocks).
Ann is coveting this nude oil painting that we picked up at the market for the house in the mountains. 

We capped off the day at Harrods. It was beautiful and the windows were amazing.
It was a whirlwind trip but oh so much fun!
Bye bye birdie,

Oh, I am so jealous!! How fun! It has been WAY too long since I've been to London (I went in college). On our trip to Harrod's we actually saw Princess Di and Harry - an absolutely surreal moment I'll never forget.

I would die to hang out there for a few days! I'm jealous, too.
