Pastels (on houses)- Lula and Frankie- my first time buying either of these magazines, I wasn't sure where to buy them until I was told about Magma in Covent Garden, they've actually got two shops one for magazines from all over the world, the other with stationery and lots of pretty things. Well worth a visit. Frankie reminds me of Oh Comely with its illustrations and little stories. I've not even read much of Lula yet, there's so much to look at. The "down the rabbit hole" features photos of an old version of Alice in Wonderland- I've seen some of it and it scared me slightly (IMDb calls it "memorably bizarre").
Meanwhile D has been off work since last Friday with man flu, boring!
And I've reached 500 followers somehow. Maybe there will be a giveaway (maybe).
