it's raining a lot

Thank you ♥ for the birthday wishes.
Our weekend in few words:
London
Tate Modern 
(a brilliant film made by children for children with the help of clever grown ups).

The new playground in Bury St Edmunds is environmentally friendly,
children seem much quieter and at ease surrounded by natural elements.
Who needs ugly plastic playgrounds?

the sale is still on until the 31st

That playground is so charming! I agree...a natural element to it, is so much nicer than the old plastic standbys. Love the children's artwork as well.

Anita a beaucoup grandi et pour l'aire de jeu je crois que l'odeur du bois calme beaucoup les enfants aussi.. ^^

Hello dear... how are you? Happy birthday... I've send you a parcel with birthday wishes but I guess you haven't got it yet. I hope you don't think I forgot about you and your day...***

thank you all once again and again and again!
Ana, thank you dear,I know, you are so sweet! x

Oooh! How was the Miro exhibition? I really really want to go but the times goes past and I haven't got round to it yet. By the way, that picture with the strings of lightbulbs is just so beautiful x

Janis said...

Oh what a weekend - to see all those wonderful places and things in London! I will dream... :^)

la casita said...

Louise I highly recommend it.
It's very well curated and it give an extensive view of Miro artwork and life. It's a reminder of how brutal humanity can become when lead by dictators and how dark times can be to those who believe in freedom and peace, sadly it's still so contemporary.
Personally, it's a milestone in my artistic education, I finally had the chance to see the Blue series for real and it's something that I will never want to forget. Rich people may afford amazing artworks but people like me (and I say this in a very humble way) can store precious memories of art experience...don't wait to long or you are going to miss it!
Thanks for the light bulb pic compliments, I think I'm a moth! ;^)

Bohemian girl said...

you had a nice weekend nevertheless. What is the middle picture? Script notes and characters from the kid's film?

la casita said...

Magda, thanks. Yep, exactly, script notes and the characters from the kid's film and for each character there's a button and you can listen the voices of the actors. We loved it so much that we are waiting to see it at cinemas again and then buy the DVD!
