monkey gone to heaven



Continuing my Easter adventures with Lo, we visited the Horniman Museum to go and chat to all the starfish and dead butterflies and eat museum cake. It was the best.

Call me a weirdo, but I do love taxidermy. I think I'd genuinely be fine with being stuffed and used as a hat rack after I die. Also, don't you think the displays and fonts they've used are quite Wes Anderson-ish?

  6. Cheeky Wes Anderson reference, I love it! I love museums, spent ages last summer dragging my boyfriend around the Natural History in an attempt to show him London. He wasn't impressed. Not sure why!

  9. OH MY GOD the otter is so cute! I am also a huge fan of taxidermy, I'd totally be down to have a big stuffed lion. Or any other ferocious beast. Its the perfect mix of creepy and awesome, right?

  16. Ya, you're right they are kind of Wes Andersonish. Taxidermy doesn't bother me much, I just wish they wouldn't make their eyes so effin' beady.

  17. That looks so much like the Natural History Museum in New York, only smaller and without the elephants in the middle. What a lovely day out <3

  18. 1. If I ever have a bet bee I am 100% calling it Bombus. Brilliant.
    2. Totally agree on the Wes front, think he should consider a movie about taxidermy, right up his alley. Because I know him well enough to say that. I do man, don't give me that look.
    3. It feels good to be back. I'm such a bad blog friend.. I'M SORRY JESS! I'M SO, SO SORRY!
    4. Come June/July when I visit Aberdeen I am either making you give me a tour or stalking you down and giving myself a tour by following you. Are you creeped out yet?

    xxL.
