  6. The really interesting thing about these photos is that if that is Marilyn Monroe in the first photo, I think they have slimmed her down a bit. She had a beautiful figure but by the standards of today's actresses and models she was very curvy -more curvy than your photo suggests.

  25. We visited the London MT - I'm fairly certain my granddaughter liked it better than any other art we viewed while across the pond!

  26. We have Madame Tussauds in Sydney Australia. I havent been. It certainly takes some work to 'make a replica' doesnt it?

  39. Knowing how long you have to queue to get into MTs during the Summer months, when my daughter and I traveled to London in February last year for a family do, I made sure we went for a visit....we had a lovely time there and far fewer tourists....it is a fascinating place :) Thanks for linking in to my linky at Cath@Home at Fun Friday Favourites and for the lovely comment you left on my blog post.
    ps....could you add my linky to your blogroll?
