Is it just us, or are the weeks flying by? Flying by like, well, flies. Nice flies.
Anyway, some things we saw this speedy week that we could but only share with your good self …
Made By White is a wonderful jewelry label set up by two sisters Lyndsay and Kelly White, two sisters with a life-long love of jewellery, clothing and all things unique and beautiful.
Their site also includes the work of other fabulous designers.
Some cute brooches we loved
“Propstore is the National Theatre’s unique pop-up riverfront café-bar built with sets and scenery from NT productions and filled with some of our favourite props.
We’re open every day from noon, serving a selection of delicious street food, Meantime draught beer, Sipsmith spirits and English wines. Pull up a chair inside, or at one of our riverside tables, or join us on Fridays and Saturdays for DJs and live music until 2am.
Propstore is packed with authentic props from National Theatre productions, including:
Trees and furniture from She Stoops to Conquer
Vintage light fittings (and severed limbs!) from Frankenstein
A goose puppet from War Horse
A bomb from Major Barbara
The crocodile from Peter Pan
The Thought-Catcher from Beauty and the Beast
The monkey from Once in a Lifetime
The pool table from The Comedy of Errors”
What a wonderful way to spend a sunny evening, by the river with chums.
Now, this next item is not to be missed.
URBANSCREEN : Large-scale projection on urban surfaces – this is our creative-company’s field of activity. We conceive and produce custom-made media installations using high artistic standards and stylistic devices, a spacious architectural background and a consistently professional completion; in doing so, creating uniquely outstanding impressions.
Such vision and skill, jaw dropping ambition. Just beautiful.
Jean Paul Sartre famously said “Hell is other people”. Ok, so we know what he meant, but also sometimes other people are heavenly. They are so clever and inspiring. Some times the artistic actions of others keep you alive.
Have a wonderful weekend
