This is one of the beautiful Cathedral I ever saw in London…St. Paul’s Cathedral.
And the garden in front is just as beautiful! ♥
The dome reaches a height of 111 meters (366 ft) and weights about 66,000 ton. Eight arches support the dome. On top of the dome is a large lantern with a weight of 850 ton.
560 steps lead visitors along three galleries all the way to the top of the dome. The first gallery, the Whispering Gallery, just inside the dome, is renowned for its acoustics. The second gallery, the Stone Gallery, is situated at a height of 53 meters (174 ft) on the outside of the dome, right above the colonnade. On top of the dome, at a height of 85 meters (279 ft), is the narrow Golden Gallery, which encircles the lantern’s base. From here you have a magnificent view over the City.
The impressive facade at the west side of the church consists of a large portico and pediment. A relief on the tympanum depicts the conversion of Paul and was created in 1706. The portico is flanked by two towers which weren’t part of the original plan. Wren added them at the last minute, in 1707.SOURCE.
I’m preparing a unique and ofcourse grand gift to the Husband for our anniversary and I’m trying to build a list. I want to be useful and would last for a long while too. He is a very simple person so he has a few things that he uses everyday. I think razor is one of the things that he values the most. Yes, I told you, he is that simple! I’m positive that he will love these straight razor designs that I found online. It looks very unique.
I love that I can give Hubby whatever and he appreciates it fully. These razor things with a cool design, I think he will love it! ♥♥♥
Hello everyone, just dropping by greet you all a grand new year!

* This beautiful photo grabbed from here.
I hope you are having a grand time and a grand holiday today…Here’s a grand Christmas song dedicated to all of you.
Enjoy this special day and spend it with your loved ones! ♥
A few more weeks to go before the big day, Christmas day and thankfully I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping plus wrapping of gifts. I have a few more to go and that includes my favorite person – the Hubby! He is STILL into music (and it looks like he will be for the next few years) so I’m still looking out for new music accessories for him. I even checked out see MF for ukuleles and other new instruments that he might want to try someday. It looks promising! Hope I could finalized what to give him very, very soon. Oh, did I mention that he owns a drumset? (*grin*)
