Eleanor Restored

I was excited to hear recently that the Eleanor Cross at Charing Cross in London has been restored.  Though it is not an original cross, and in the incorrect place as well (outside Charing Cross station) I am still really fond of it.

It’s beautifully done, and also happens to be a Victorian replica, which makes it all the more attractive to me!

Check out the article and pictures on the BBC News website.

You can also see a postcard of the Charing Cross from my collection here (scroll down to the bottom image).

Study Update

Ooops *shameful face* I completely forgot to update on my study/exams.

I am pleased to say that I passed all my exams, and was offered and accepted a place on the MA History of Art, starting this September!  Scary times!  Looking forward to it though!
