Sanity is madness put to good use..


Over at Wednesday Stampers the theme for this week is London. I wanted to do a page about another side of London apart from the royals! Spotted this great little photo taken in London in 1922 of The Pearlies ..Cockney Londoners who dress up in outfits covered in pearls. Black crows always remind me of when I visited London many years ago too so have included this stamped image (thanks Palma for the stamp)..and of course the queen who is on all of our UK stamps.

I thought this week only the royals were allowed center stage. Like the idea of the "pearlies". xox Corrine
