Have any of you been to the Sherlock Holmes Museum in London? It is amazing!! I've been wanting to go for ages, and I finally went. It is my new favourite place.
I love the way that their flat is represented. Even the knife in the mantel piece!! And they have loads of 'artefacts' from various cases, like the ears in the box and that thumb... And there's really creepy lifelike statues things re-enacting scenes from the stories.
One of the best bits was the letters that have been sent in. There are a few asking to solve cases for them, and the best was from a school child who addresses the letter to "Mr Dead Sherlock Holmes" and talks about how the only reason they're writing to him in the first place is because their teacher told them to, and that they feel really silly because he is dead... that made me laugh.
I would definitely recommend a visit if you're ever around there! It's a great place, and the gift shop sells deerstalkers, which is always a bonus!
In other news, there is still a competition going on to design the new logo for the group!! If you would like details wander over to this journal
Welcome, Hello and COMPETITION!Wow, It's been ages...
But I'm back! Welcome to all of the new members, and hello again to all of the old ones. Glad to see you've all kept going
I've promised myself that I'm going pay more attention to this group, so to mark my commitment I'm going to do a bit of re-vamping, starting by giving it a brand new icon! The previous one has been great, but I think it's time for something new.
So, here is my challenge to you:
This competition is to design a new icon for the Love-Sherlock-Holmes group. It can have anything on it (Within reason) but it must have the words "Love Sherlock Holmes" featured somewhere on it.
The winner will have their design featured as the new logo, as well as a nice little feature of their work on the group page.
There will be two runners up, who will also be featured.
You have until 1st June to submit your entry to the "logo" folder of the group.
for the information.
Is anyone thinking of entering? I would be interested to know how much interest there is at the moment.
Until next time!
