It can’t be easy finding new ways to re-present an icon who has been featured in thousands of magazines in her career but this series of images of Madonna in the June edition of Vogue styled by the brilliant @benjaminbruno_ knocked my socks off.

Something I learned today - this Ikebana lark is a lot harder than it looks; my best effort after approx four hours and 1500 photos! 🌱🐌 #notturningjapanese

Popped into the newly opened Casa LOEWE on Bond Street. Whether you’re interested in fashion, art, design, architecture or just experiencing something utterly brilliant, I recommend you go along. Sadly my photos don’t do justice to Jonathan Anderson’s astonishing talent but it’s a visual and sensory treat. You don’t see things done this well very often. It’s pitch perfect.

For the past ten years or so on my morning walk, I’ve regularly walked past this pretty but unprepossessing tabernacle in the middle of nowhere (dated 1806 above the door). Today, I saw inside for the first time. Have a squiz. It’s astonishing. Who could fail to be captivated by that ceiling, Saint Sebastian or Saint Lucia with her eyes in a dish 👀...?

Figline Valdarno is a small town with a beautiful piazza but very few tourists. Every year on Easter Sunday there is a mediaeval procession and an astonishing hour long display for the local population. The flag throwers, drummers and trumpeters range in age from young teenagers to men in their sixties and they must give up hours of their free time to practice the routines. It’s completely ridiculous but one of the reasons I love Italy so much. 🇮🇹

For those interested in London’s classical architecture and architects, a charming William IV period original framed watercolour of Charing Cross Hospital built circa 1831-34 to the plans of Decimus Burton. Signed TMN and dated 1833. Small but finely detailed.

“Oy Marge, how many dead fish did you say I have to stuff down me frock to get a boyfriend?”. Evil Marge winks at the camera. “Two. It’s always two.” [Tapestry at Holkham]

When you bump into your landlord unexpectedly on the street and during the friendly conversation he lets you know that he has been offered a lot more rent for your shop when the lease is up for review next year (true) even though you have always paid on the dot and you’ve been flooded out three times and had a whole year of scaffolding just after you opened and everyone you speak to Is full of doom and gloom about the economy and the high street and the antiques trade in general and you can’t help but wonder whether it is worth all the long hours and the stress... here’s my answer: Hell, yes! ....but ask me again in a year’s time. 😱 😬🥴😳😟

I don’t often post photos of myself but the street sign needed a context; taken on my recent (first!) visit to the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford. I probably don’t need to tell you how much I loved it.
