twelfth night and the twelve knits of christmas

All the characters from ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas‘ were beautifully knitted and amusingly displayed by Trish in the window of Creations Wool Shop, Barnes, London SW13, using patterns found in ‘The Twelve Knits of Christmas’ by Fiona Goble.

A few drops of rain don’t spoil the view from the London Eye on a mid-December evening. Down below, the city is brightly illuminated, boats and bridges are festooned with colourful lights, there are frost fairs and Christmas markets … The festivities have begun!

Umas gotas de chuva não estragam a vista do London Eye numa noite de dezembro. Lá em baixo, a cidade está muito iluminada, os barcos e pontes enfeitados com luzes coloridas, há feiras de natal … As festas já começaram!

sebastião salgado in london

The familiar walls and arches of Paddington Station merge with Sebastião Salgado’s photograph of the Nenets of Northern Siberia, in a poster advertising the Brazilian photographer’s epic exhibition, Genesis, shown at the Natural History Museum earlier this year.

sheep at the royal academy?

What would Sir Joshua Reynolds have thought? But it’s true. A small flock of Bowmont Merino sheep have been running circles round the statue of Reynolds in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Arts. They were brought here to celebrate the RA’s current exhibition, ‘Australia’, and the final weekend of Wool Week.

Umas ovelhas fofas na Royal Academy!
