A Swedish Gustavsberg designer Lisa Larson created a series of animals which is called Lilla Zoo from 1956 to 1978. This is a cat from Lilla Zoo which has a small face and an elegant posture I adore the most.

Roland Penrose visited Picasso's studio in Paris and bought one of the best portrait of Lee Miller for £50. Roland shipped it to Lee in Cairo where she was at the time. The colorful painting stunned her friends who could not understand Picasso's modern sense but when Roland's and Lee's son Antony saw the portrait, he instantly shouted with joy. ' Mummy! Mummy!'

I went to see Farley Farm House the other day. This is the house where British artist Roland Penrose and American photographer Lee Miller used to live with their son Antony. Once I stepped inside the house, I was surrounded by the art of Penrose, Miller and their friends, such as Man Ray, Picasso, Paul Éluard etc. who often visited the house.
Antony and his daughter Ami guided us around the house and shared their memories with us. It was an amazing experience, and a great opportunity to see this collection in a such beautiful location!

When The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus came out I thought I have got to watch it even though I wasn't a big fan of The Stones (still not). Maybe I like early numbers like 'route 66'. Anyway I watched it and it was amazing. The late 60's is the decade the stones were shining most, they were incredible good looking rock stars playing great songs. The Stones had it all.
