What''s Not to Love About the Victoria and Albert Museum?

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.
