A month of modernism

I started May with a visit to the Bauhaus exhibition at the Barbican, and have finished with a trip to the National Trust’s 2 Willow Road in Hampstead – the site of Ernő Goldfinger’s modernist house. Both are fantastic and well worth a visit.

Grandma’s tea towels

I knew my Grandma collected tea towels, but when I asked her this weekend if she had any spare, I hadn’t realised just how many she had accumulated over the years – hundreds… In her words: “They are an inexpensive souvenir, practical and easy to store.” How wonderful, and very northern.

The result is an amazing, nostalgic, visual assortment of holiday destinations, towns, counties, National Parks, walks, dogs, food, drink, cooking, charity, history…

I’ll be adding pictures of them here as my friend and I start using them for their intended purpose in our new flat, and from now, I’ll be starting a collection of my own.

(And what better one to begin with than Lancashire…)
