|Gaudy but perfect for hiding those gravy stains|
|This is an example of how serious the tablecloth was.|
|Ah! The oilcloth. Perfect for people like me who are prolific messy eaters.|
|The beautifully draped tablecloth, familiar at weddings and floor length to hide the horrors that lie beneath - the no-screws-required MDF job.|
|Ah oui! A common sight in (French-style) bistros everywhere!|
And there you have it. Take a moment to remember the once popular tablecloth.
Yawn. A selfie, cat toys and dreamies. She is demanding.
Taking inspiration from Hey Homewreckers Poms I think I might win some brownie points! The colours aren't ideal but that's all the shop had.
Having issues with newly acquired Firefox. Going to have to clean up netbook and use that. I thought I had fixed the problem but evidently not as the last blog post didn't publish!
Hope to be back soon waffling!

I am loving the updates but still have mega issues finding something comfortable to read them on.
Today I found gReader. It's almost totally like Google Reader except it's not really.
I really hate Google for closing down on me. I am a part-time creature of habit, particularly when it comes to reading blogs.
I can't even upload photos to my blog posts anymore, using my Nexus 7.
It's like the world has turned against me and decided to make things that little bit more bloody difficult.
I have lots to talk about! I can't do it today, I have to put up pictures.
I shall return on form soon and hopefully Bartlam will also be as accessible as I am.
Love you guys.

Andy and Elena will send you a post card from their destination if you will pay p&p.
I have already ordered two, one shop bought from Elena and one hand drawn from Andy.
Visit them at Postcards From Us
I love sending and receiving postcards and recently read that postcards are still very popular when informing people of your holiday destination and stuff.

I couldn't go to London and NOT call in to The Old Artistry. For a start, for those in the know, it was in E17 (I loved Terry - I still don't know why), Walthamstow. Like proper East London.
Secondly, I love vintage, art, markets and nice people so you know, ticked all my boxes.
Lucy and Jessica are the proprietors and they sell vintage items from clothing to cabbage pots and Lucy's artwork!

|See? These people are fabulous!|
|I loved how everything was quite random|
|It's a little treasure trove in here|
|Fantastic signed prints (can be got online)|

Hyper Japan finally arrived at Earls Court on 26th - 28th July 2013:
The weather was glorious and the queue was enormous. Have a ticket? Join the massive, longest queue you've ever been in. 2 hours in the blazing sun with only a black cardigan to protect my delicate skin.
Once inside we saw things like Sushi Making:
|Weirdo Doll Heads|
|*SCREAMS!* MY LITTLE PONIES!|
|Kawaii everything random at high prices|
This one was my *gasp* favourite. She moved about like she was gliding. I was in awe and almost turning into a stalker:
|MESMERISING <3 <3 <3|
|It was roasting in the queue - Latex might be too warm but at least she just needed to remove her coat.|
|I just loved him.|
OK MOVING ON SWIFTLY..
I met...the one and only...Godfather of Sudoku. The actual inventor. He's so cute and his glasses were lime green. I'm a little enthusiastic here but I was slightly amazed that this fella made Sudoku. OVERWHELMED:
|Big Love to you Godfather|
