This is the British Museum.(Oops, I had the wrong museum originally....thankfully my wonderful sister let me know. Thanks, Jo!) It was full of amazing pieces! I wish I could show you every single picture I took, but you might never speak to me again if I showed them all. (wink)
Have you heard of the Rosetta Stone? I was shocked by how big it was and how tiny the script was.
Flip flops have been around a long long long time!
I want a room like this in my house when I grow up. So many treasured books!
I know this is kind of a horrid picture, but this body was buried in the desert in 3400B.C. It amazes me that the bones survived, let alone the skin and the hair. AMAZING!
The courtyard used to be open, but they enclosed it and put this beautiful glass roof on it.
Even the floor was spectacular!
I'm sure you've heard of Harrod's Department store. This was my first trip there. Wow, was it amazing. I will warn you if you go there they frown on pictures being taken. I got caught twice. (blushes)
Talk about fancy!
Some serious boots!!!
Some expensive shoes.
Really expensive shoes...around $1,000 !
Some extremely expensive shoes....$1600!
I got caught and told off here...Now, I'm not usually a rule breaker, but...
We do Christmas Crackers at our house every year and if we have guests during the holiday season I try to introduce them to our tradition. These are some seriously posh Christmas Crackers!
I tried to take a picture inside the tea room at Harrod's, but a security guard stopped me. I am definitely going their for a cream tea the next time I visit London. It was absolutely adorable.
I've never seen anything like it!
I hope you enjoyed part one of Living Large in London.
Thanks for putting up with me...and thanks for all the birthday wishes you guys sent me on Tuesday!
You're the BEST!
