I would love to be in London this week…


For the last few days of the Cecil Beaton exhibit
at the Chris Beetles Art Gallery


The retrospective features 64 images that cover more than 40 years of Beaton’s career. It would be so lovely to see the exhibit and then head over to the Tea Palace in Notting Hill for tea, don’t you think?

(PS: The third photo is my favorite. Can you imagine the caption: “Dear, I found the most fabulous little fixer-upper for us!”)
