Toy Story! – Yours Truly

Well it’s lovely to be back! I finally feel well enough to blog again! Thank you for all your Get Well wishes, they were very sweet and definitely cheered me up! Not that you’ll notice at all in these photos but I’ve actually dyed my hair brunette this week, and I have to say I think it’s going to be a pretty short lived experiment! I already miss my reddish mop!

My corset top is from eBay (I loved the chintzy print!) worn with jewellery inherited from my Nanna (informal New Years resolution is to wear more of the beautiful jewellery I’m fortunate enough to own!)

Yes my cardigan drowns me! But it’s so snuggly and soft it’s like wearing a duvet (which is just what you need when you’re on the mend!) The shorts are Topshop, hosiery is from H&M and my little case was a Brighton find in Snoopers Paradise.

I had to include this picture! It looks so terribly posed but it’s actually just Josh caught in a bit of a daydreamy moment…Naaaaw!

This Saturday we had a date in Brighton! We went to the Brighton Toy and Model Museum followed by lunch at Kensington Gardens (the nachos there are our favourites..We demolish them!) I took a silly amount of photos inside the museum, which was amazing! I’ve tried to whittle it down for you! (would you like me to put the rest on the Yours Truly facebook?) An incredible cabinet filled with soft toys from as early as 1905!
This pair of ducks made me laugh! What a duo!

The Circus cabinet was also amazing. I have a huge love for traditional Circus items, and these little lead clowns were no exception (though is it just me or are they carrying sawn off shotguns?!)

This ferocious lion caught my eye! His original box was behind him too. There were quite a few original boxes throughout the museum which I found remarkable, when you consider how rough children can be with such things.
A whole glass cabinet was dedicated to miniature model toys, including this Disney set…

And a whole room was dedicated to puppets!

If you know anyone who is an avid fan of model trains then send them to Brighton quick! There was a huge model village and train set running throughout the museum!

It was extremely detailed too..Josh and I laughed pretty hard when we noticed this little guy!

It was such an entertaining way to pass the afternoon, and so many items inside get you talking about your own favourite toys! I’d definitely recommend anyone to have a little visit! Lastly I’m very happy to announce the winner of The Splendid Suitcase blog giveaway! Congratulations to ‘Georgia Rose’!
