And after Hampton Court....

I was given the privilege of visiting two, One hundred year old shops in London. The first was a boot shop where I saw them making shoes and developing shoe lathes. I was able to purchase a small piece of leather to make doll shoes from. It's a soft creamy tan color. I will hate to cut into it, but... it will make up beautiful shoes for one of my dolls, and come from that one hundred year old shop.
  Then a few doors down there was the second shop. A hat shop. Down stairs were the mens hats and I found a wonderful miniature wellington hat that looked like it would fit my ball jointed male doll. And yes it did... perfectly.


It's a little hard to see being that it's black but, I'll get a better picture later when I have made the suit/uniform that goes with that hat.
  And then there was the upstairs and the couture ladies hats. I have never seen such wonderful hats in all my life. Expensive...? Yes! but just so wonderful one couldn't resist. So I bought a hat. A beautiful gray feathered hat. And here it is.... in all it's glory!


I have never owned anything so over the top and so gorgeous. And I have the perfect gray suit to wear it with. Now I'll just have to have a reason to get all dressed up and show off my new hat. lol.
  So after that... my tour guide said he wouldn't take to the wine shop. lol... for fear I'd take the shop home with me. lol {not really but funny none the less}
  Then I had dinner with Owen and we had a good time talking about things and planned projects for the future. I am looking forward to this and the new book.
  After that I crawled into bed and left a wake up call for early, so I could get to my pick-up place for the last tour... Tomorrow is Stonehenge.
