tea, scones and grace kelly
My lovely Grandma and I went to the V&A for tea and scones, earlier. It was rather busy today, and once again the Grace Kelly: Style Icon exhibition was sold out, but as a member I can just pop in with a guest whenever I please, without having to queue to buy tickets. Thanks Mum, my V&A membership is truly the best birthday present I have ever recieved! I have to say though, I feel that the V&A cafe is actually quite a let down to the museum; there isn't enough seating, the service is extremely slow and all of the rooms are rather messy. Saying that, if you go at a time when it is less busy, I really do reccomend sitting in the Morris room, it's beautifully gloomy and the wallpaper is just lovely! Bless my Grandma, for taking photographs of me. I felt really bad for asking her, especially as I need at least a hundred pictures of me to find one decent one! So do excuse the first photograph, I was asking her if she remembered which button to press, haha. Doesn't my Grandma look cute? I think she is rather fashionable for a lady of her age, and ever so young looking, she recently celebrated her 67th birthday! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend, did any of you pick up any bargains at your local car boot sales? Love, Jazzabelle. P.S. If you are wondering why on earth I have posted a random picture of a lemon, it's because they are many lemon trees in the V&A garden, and this one just looked so ripe and tasty! I wonder if the lemons actually get used? If not, what a waste! P.P.S. Gosh, I do look very skinny here, no wonder I was getting an awful lot of looks today. I'm naturally this thin by the way, just in case you thought otherwise. P.P.P.S. Sorry! I totally forgot to say what I'm wearing: *Plum Zara dress, £7.50 *Uniqlo cardigan, 50p *Plum Bag, 50p *Bicycle brooch, 50p, all secondhand.
