It's a Wrap!

My Colour Play Wrap was finished... time to take some photos!

I think this will do....The St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel in London!
Isn't this an amazing place!

See that tower on the far left?

There is a spectacular 5 floor staircase - hmmm.....this might be the place!

Here I go....photography was a bit tricky with all of the light coming through those windows!
and the bright light fixtures!

Up, up, up I went....

It was a bit scary at times....trying to balance and hold onto my lusciously soft wrap!

But I made it to the top!  Isn't this ceiling just too much for words?
(I'm running out of adjectives here!)
See the woman spinning - there in the dome! far left!

The St Pancras station and hotel building were scheduled for demolition.

When Sir John Betjeman, a poet and railway lover heard of these plans,
he led the campaign to save the building and it was given a Grade 1 listed building
designation in 1967.

The St. Pancras rail station is where you catch the Eurostar....and this
fabulous renovated station adjoins the hotel.

Sr. John Betjeman is acknowledged by a statue
- he seems to be looking up in awe at the new station building.

I thought he looked a little cold this morning!

I love this shawl!
