Good afternoon dear Friends  :wave:

I hope that you are well.

The last few days of summerlike temperatures in England have inspired a few outdoor pictures to my happy little Victorians :

What a glorious day to do the Washing ! As Ms Gertrude always says the Secret to a perfect Laundry is Lavender infused Water and lots of Sunshine !



You see Children, with a little love and care Mother Nature can be so plentiful and generous !



The Art of Topiary by Monsieur Firmin Jardinier Extraordinaire !



Queen Alexandra and her two Children inaugurating the Royal Horticultural Chelsea Garden Show on 20th May 1912 !




Wishing you all a great week-end !  8-)

Good morning dear Playmofriends  :wave:

I hope that you are all well.

Nearly a month that I hadn't posted in PF so I invite you to catch up with the latest tribulations of my ever happy little Victorians on New Regent St  :lol: :

In 1918, a young Fashion Designer opened her boutique at 31 rue Cambon in Paris. Her unique signature style would forever change the way Women dress to this very day ! Her name was Coco Chanel !



Happy Birthday to our Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elisabeth II !



This is such a lovely day to catch the Afternoon Tram ! Where shall we go next Mommy ?

British Dressmaker Charles Frederick Worth also known as the Father of Haute Couture presented the first Fashion Show in 1858 !



In 1902 a young Lady wrote her first children book featuring animals called The Tale of Peter Rabbit, her name was Beatrix Potter !



It is Elementary my dear Watson ! The elusive Cat Burglar is just one step ahead of us !



In 1851 in New York City, Jerry Thomas created the first ever cocktail "The Blue Blazer" and "The Bon Vivant Companion" Guide how to Mix Drinks ! Cheers !

Lord Carnarvon, his Egyptian Valet and their legendary Dune Hopper Oldtimer Car !



TV Pioneer Hal Roach created in 1936 the popular TV series The Gang ( USA ) or Little Rascals ( GB ) featuring the adventures of a bunch of mischievous street kids !



Did you say Little Rascals ? Little Victorians were just really resourceful !

The Ice Cream Van is my favourite place to be in Summertime ! What's you favourite flavour ?



In 1900, the intrepid Anne Rainsford French was the world's first licensed woman driver. She is seen here leaving her family home in Washington DC in 1905 !



En route to Southampton, James ! The Mauretania will steam across the Atlantic at 17.00 ! New York City, here we come !



Thank you to the Bus Drivers who are keeping the UK going !

Did you know that the London Buses are red because the General Omnibus Company decided in 1907 to stand out from the competition ?



It is Elementary my dear Watson ! We have established by now that the Tramway Thief is a Lady wearing a Feather Hat !



When taking a stroll through the park remember to pay a visit to Mimi's Flower Stand ! Young Peter will also deliver your special bouquet anywhere in London within 30 minutes !

Good afternoon dear Playmofriends  :wave:

I hope that you are well.

Inspired by "Mr Selfridge" TV series which I am currently watching, I am delighted to announce that I will now proceed with the interior decoration of the buildings of New Regent St amongst those a department store itself inspired by the famous Harrods from London>

These interiors will be created by the famous interior designer Elsie de Wolfe who will share with us her options and choices in the making of this project.

Stay tuned  ;)...

Wishing you a great week-end !
