I had a fab afternoon last week visiting The Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch. It's a museum of the home, set in some old Almshouses and is free (although donations are very much welcomed), and of course there's a shop which I didn't leave empty-handed.
I left with a notebook (no surprises there), some wrapping paper and some seeds. Today I'm just going to share the notebook as I've plans for the wrapping paper (and not the usual sort of plans) so I'll most likely share that another time. There wasn't much choice of notebooks in the shop, but it didn't matter as this one caught my eye straight away, and the man in the shop assured me they were stocking up on notebooks very soon. That's good news for my future visits, but I'm still not sure how they knew I was coming!
And in case you're wondering the cover is an adaptation of a letter written by Charles Lamb to William Wordsworth about London in 1801. Who knew that Hipsters were around then?!
Inside the front cover there's a lovely Robert Macfarlane quote too:
I've no idea yet what I'll use this for, but I couldn't leave it on the shelf and I'm sure when the time comes I'll find a use that's just perfect for it.
