Nice Green Cafe

I went to the Vintage Fashion Fair in Primrose Hill yesterday. Cecil Sharp House on Regents Park Road is worth visiting for the building alone, a classic Art Deco red brick with a fab Bloomsbury-esque mural in the main hall. I found some very nice vintage buttons which I shall show when they adorn the cardigan and jacket I had in mind, but the real star is the Nice Green Cafe in the basement. So pretty and shabby-chic, rather like the Neighbourhood cafe in Liverpool.
Just how I'd like my kitchen to look!


Worth the walk from Camden Market if you want to avoid the crowds for a tea / coffee break with delicious homemade cakes, it's always quiet and peaceful, Today I was treated to a glimpse of some Morris Dancers (fit young men with big sticks who looked more like Rugby players!) and some graceful Regency dancers floating round in circles, like a rehearsal for a Jane Austen adaptation-for-televsion!

Still a few blooms clinging to life!

I wish they still sold monkeys and talking parrots here! Instead, it's a Tea Shop!

A couple of interesting things decorating buildings near Mornington Crescent
