A while ago I bought a Lego Minifigure's bag, and I instantly got hooked on these little figures, they are so cute.... I now have this small collection

Do you collect any thing?

Copy Cat

The big blog craze amongst Danish bloggers at the moment is to decorate little porcelain tins with bamboo lids. I got myself a few of them when I was in Denmark last week, they are bought at the Danish Shop 'Søsterne  Grene'. Here is my version

You can see more creative variations here and here and here

Greenwich Market

On Tuesday I went up to Greenwich with a good friend of mine to get some information about to have a stall at the Greenwich Market (more about that later). The sun was out and the weather was mild. We had a  little wonder through the Old Royal Naval College If you haven't seen it, Its definitely worth a visit if you ever come to London. It's amazingly beautiful. We often drive up there on a Sunday, The Greenwich park across the street is massive and perfect for a game of football, picnic, hide and seek or just bring a blanket and relax, there is also a big playground with a ice cream shop and toilet facilities, so overall a great place to take the kids. Greenwich park is famously know for the home of the Royal Observatory, it is situated on top of a hill in the park overlooking the River Thames, possible one of the best views in town!
If you fancy a wander through the village there are a lot of individual shops, cafe's, restaurants and pubs to explore and the market is open all week. On a week day there are a lot of vintage and antique stalls. I Was lucky to pick up 2 vintage wallpaper rolls, a small Jug and a melamine sugar bowl & cream jug for only £15.00. We finished our visit of with a bit of dim sum, I love days like this.

South the River, the view is Canary Wharf, where we use to live...

Great pub for lunch, you can easy bring the kids

Dim Sum

I love the contrast of new and old architecture
