Columbia Road

I have just got back from columbia road in the east end of london, it is one of my favorite places to go on a sunday. Me and dad ventured down there about 7am, dads got a few friends that run the flower stalls down there, so its always great to head over and see a few faces. Today i bought a bunch of country cottage flowers to put in my new studio space. Its great having a mum who is a florist she makes the best flower arrangements for the house. I ate lots of cupcakes (left over from yesterday)  and drank lots of tea so far its been a lovely sunday, Mums just about to make a roast and i am in charge of the gravy…best job if you ask me.

would be lovely to know how you are spending your sunday?

    I love Columbia road market! It's such a gorgeous place on a sunday. I went to a car boot sale today but didn't spy much! It's a lovely day though.

    I did a similar post a few months back, I love the flower market there and the fox sewing on the window ledge… Sounds like a perfect Sunday. I am sitting with my cat indoors listening to the radio. 🙂 xx

    I really want to go there now after seeing those photos, but doubt that'll happen for a long time! I love the fox sitting in the window, so cute ^_^

    Sounds like a lovely way to spend your Sunday. I worked all day, saw some family who've come down to visit and went to a pub quiz!A mixed day.
