Actually I went to the V&A to see the Pearls Exhibition.
Which was nice, but I had expected to have my heart stolen away by something transcendental.
Which the pearls weren't, quite. For me. (Possibly for you?)
I was wowed, instead by the fashion exhibit - which covered many eras.
And highlighted all that is handmade.
I say, put me in that time machine, take me back!
I don't need to be a princess, let me just dress her, or weave for her, or sweep up after. Anything to be able to touch, for a moment, the magic that envelops her! Oh yes indeed, my heart was stolen away.
Again and again.
