The Wallace collection revisited







Since I was very little, I have been obsessed with museum shops.  I always wondered why they never made affordable copies of the magical and relevant small pieces from the exhibitions.  It's always nerdy things like mirrors and pencils.  Finally my dream came true, and the gift shop had a section with rows and rows of affordable jewellery inspired by Georgian, Medieval, and Victorian pieces!!!!!!!   

When ever I would like to celebrate anything, I am going there with some friends to help clear the section, instead of nerdy (expected) celebratory drinks!   

I am going to be wearing all of the earrings (above) way too much!


I have done a heavily documented post already about the Wallace collection!

I have too have wished this for years and years!! Those earrings are beautiful. The Wallace Collection is the most magical place I hope they add more delights to the gift shop. XX
