A perfectly wonderful Saturday

I had a lovely day. I took my Mum out for the day (it was her Christmas present 2009)

We set off early and went to a chocolate delight workshop in Kensington. It was fun and messy!!!



We went for lunch and had a little browse around Harrods. We stopped off at the chocolate bar for dessert!!

I had booked to go to the Grace Kelly exhibition. It was wonderful!!

Here are some of the clothes we saw:









This dress from High Society  (above) was gorgeous and so so tiny.




As was this one: i think she must have been at her smallest whilst filming Hig Society.


 This beautiful dress on the left was probably my favourite..it was gorgeous, this pic doesn't do it justice.


 We even got to see her 'Kelly' bag and the outfit in this photo:



The beautiful book that accompanies the exhibiton:



One dress that i would still love to see of hers has to be her gorgeous wedding dress:



I have been to the V&A museum before but never discovered the gorgeous garden.
It was such a beautiful day, it was full of people dipping their toes in and paddling.

Oh yes, I discovered the V&A garden when I went to the quilt exhibition in May. I didn't know they are having a Grace Kelly exhibit. She really was a beautiful woman.
And the chocolate place in Kensington? Could you make your own chocolates or was it just an interesting name for the shop? :D xx
