Things that begin with C

I’ve been busy glazing cup cakes this week. I will be getting the next batch out of the kiln later so watch this space.

I stayed with a friend a few weekends ago and we visited some venues as part of London Open House. There were so many to choose from and after seeing a mile queue outside the Bank of England we chose to seek out venues less unknown that didn’t have huge queues.

Our first stop was at some artist studios in Shoreditch, Village Underground, they are ex London Underground tube train carriages recycled to form creative studios on an abandoned viaduct. Check out their website, they’ve also got an amazing warehouse space.

We also had a tour of Hackney Town Hall that has some amazing original Art Deco features and a few really bad modernisations, i wish I’d got a photo! The weather was great so we stopped off at the London Fields lido for a wonderful open air swim then a nice cup of tea. On the way home we spotted this….. a spiral stair case for a cat! I noticed the cat flap first then the ladder, what a great invention.

So there are a few things beginning with C, Cup cakes, creative carriages and a cat ladder! I’d recommend London Open House for next year, so much to choose from and some fab venues to see, a weekend just isn’t long enough.
