London – Day Five: Brighton by the Sea

Brighton 1542
Our last full day of our trip, we decided to take the train to the seaside town of beautiful Brighton, England. Our friend Beth suggested it, and we wanted to see what Brighton was like. I have always wanted to visit the English seaside, too.

We got up early and were on our way to the train. It took us a little over an hour taking the train from London to Brighton. I really love taking the train!

As we walked from the train station through the streets of Brighton, we were greeted by fantastic treats – like these from a French pastry shop! I bought some macarons here. I could not resist.

After getting a sweet treat, we were on our way to explore the town.

We walked all though the lanes first, stopping in shops here and there as we went. There were so many cute shops and cafes!

We went though the wonderful Brighton Museum and Art Gallery. It is near the Royal Pavilion. What a great museum!

Here is a cat from in the museum! This cat made sound, but I do not think it was working the day we were there. I loved this cat, so cute. Here are some of my favorites from the museum.

We went to so many cute teeny tiny shops that were by the seaside. This was one of our favorites, 229 Ceramics, a small studio and shop. I got some cute pieces, and they were lovingly wrapped with care by the maker. We told him we had to safely get the ceramics home on the plane, and that we did! What a great shop.

Totes Totes Totes

Tofu Baby Tote 3

I have some new totes! I “tote-ally” made Tofu Baby Totes! My friend Chris at Chief Crunchy Screen Printing helped me make these bags. I think they are great for a walk in the woods!

Raoul helped me take these pics at the local botanical gardens. We had so much fun looking around, it is so peaceful and beautiful there.

I also made a design inspired by Smiths lyrics! I love how my illustration of Morrissey came out! Perfect to carry your groceries, books, or records! You can order your own totes through Shoppe Sugar Cookie on Etsy!
