Weekend

It's been a nice and relaxing weekend, much needed since I came back from Istanbul. Yesterday I took a trip to Monocle to check out the Porter tote and shoulder bags. Want both... I then had a very nice cafe latte at the recently opened Cocorino.





Today, Columbia Road for some ornamental cabbages. On the way we stopped in at Leila's Shop which has extended in to the unit next door to the cafe. Ryantown has lost all it's colour. For six weeks, all our favourite Rob Ryan goods are available in black and white only.











Before taking a walk along Regent's canal to P's studio we took a ride slightly further East, for brunch at The Counter Cafe. Totally worth the trip for the excellent coffee and a chocolate brownie that'd be hard to beat.

i didn't realise that monocle shop was still open. has it become a permanent fixture?

I like the tote a lot, great color.
The Counter looks yummy and I absolutely love your picture of ducks!
Very nice weekend.

Lottie, yes it would seem that it's a permanent fixture!

The Counter was indeed a great find Aga... and the ducks are actually swans! There are two who live outside Pete's studio along Regents Canal.

Hi Marie, the it's the first time I noticed the fox, he resides on Columbia Road, next door to the Rob Ryan store.

Louise... my weekend are precious, I like to make time for good coffee, breakfast/brunch and time with my husband...

The Counter is such a lovely, lovely place. Shame it's so tucked away, although that's kinda what makes it so awesome. Ho hum!
