Hi friends, London has new fans. What a crazy and kicking city.
Thanks you for sharing your tipps with me!

We were so busy absorbing the dynamic of the city, that we didn´t make it into any museum (shame, shame). Besides a Bus and Thames Boat Tour we wore our feet out by running through the city all day long. We got glimpses of Soho (Denmark street was Michaels guitar heaven), Hackney, Shoreditch - thanks to Camilla, what an inspiring area. Next time, I´d like to stay here too.

Elisa, I loved Ryantown and the other little shops on Columbia Road. We´ve also been to Camden, it was as crowded as expected and Little Venice was a nice, quiet retreat afterwards. Thank you Anja for the advice! Last but not least we visited London Central and Westminster. Our hotel was in Belgravia, just around the corner of Victoria station and a good starting point.
Meeling / ibb Portobello Market is on the list for the next trip.
Time flew and I´d love to see more, more, MORE.

Plush Toys!

I got a copy of this book already at the end of last year. Louis Bou is the author and
he collected a nice selection of world wide art toys like from
 Nechepurenka, plushPlay, Outsiders, HinĂ© Mizushima just to name a few.
I´m happy my work is in the book too.
The book is in English, has a lovely, handy format and was published by Spanish Monsa in 2012.
It´s also available at amazon.
