postcards: day one


Saturday, 24/9/11:  Brighton by train (tenner return, total bargain) from London Bridge for the Radical Bloomsbury exhibition.  Colours gorgeous, painting unremarkable, designs desirable, Farrow and Ball paint background colours perfect. Great little museum. Had never seen the fantasy of the Pavilion before.  Unitarian Church monumentally down to earth.  Had to exercise restraint in Ditto Fabrics. Failed to do so in Farm Shop Cafe at teatime and sat on breezy beach for half an hour to recover.  Back soon.

That's a lovely angle on the pavilion. Am a bit worried about my own difficulties with exercising restraint now that I have looked at the Ditto Fabrics website ...

So much packed into small space. Great idea to do a postcard post.

Great photo and good word picture, too. What a lovely day!
Thanks for the fabric shop link.

I just dusted down the old sewing machine my Mum gave me and I have no restraint to exercise when it comes to fabrics (and yarns) ... Ditto here I come!

Gorgeous postcard :D

I've only visited Brighton once. In the 1970's. I was staying in Catford with my friend from uni and her boyfriend drove us there for the day. I'd forgotten about it so thanks for reminding me.

how good ! I always try to get to Charleston when I manage to be in Brighton...something magic about their art even if the critics say it's not that top class!I don't care!

Brilliant postcard! I would be so chuffed if something like this turned up on my doormat. Love the photo but am HEAD OVER HEELS with the writing.
