The Museum of Everything.


If you have any spare time on your hands between Thursdays and Sundays, you would be foolish not to visit this incredible and freakish and ingenious exhibition at the Museum of Everything. Tucked away in Primrose Hill, it's an absolute gem, with a lovely (cheap) cafe where your tea will be served in mis matched crocks and complementary biscuits were placed on the table- a sure fire way of impressing me.

A mixture of visually overwhelming 'outsider' art, from Peter Blake's beautiful and disturbing collections of ephemera, to more taxidermy than you could shake a stick at from Walter Potter, and blindingly kitsch circus memorabilia, this is one of my all time favourite exhibitions ever- and it's on until Christmas. Read a slightly more thorough article here.

I've just stumbled upon your blog and Etsy, and am completely enamoured! I just love your etchings, little tweed characters, and lovely finds (will definitely go along to visit the museum). Will be back for more!

Oh thanks for the recommendation - at the website now to check it out. Any idea if there is an entry fee?
