Cut Paper and Some Junk Shop Finds
Inspired by my previous post on Brian Wildsmith, I have made a start on a collage.
It's not finished and it's not that refined, I did it whilst Iris was doing some painting beside me so it was quite hard to concentrate fully. Anyway the colours are rather joyful and delicious. Even while severely muted by Blogger (just why does that happen?)
I also had a quick trip to the junk shop at the end of the week and found a few nice things. I haven't been buying much lately, a combination of it being January = having no money, a lack of car boot sales and the weather has meant that there hasn't really been much of a market on Saturdays. I'm bound to make up for it later in the year. Even though I have vowed to curb my magpie ways a tad, as I've been having a massive clear-out this week which has been very cathartic and satisfying.
During my clear-out, I re-found this lovely little enamel ladybird pin which I've had since I was 11 or thereabouts.
Junk shop necklace.
Nautical wrapping paper.
A fine hand-made pin cushion in teeny tiny patchwork.
Tiny turtle buttons. Only two though.
Oh and a super-big THANKS to everyone who left a comment on my interview over at Tea For Joy.
And yes, that was my big reveal, some of my plates are going to be stocked at the Paul Smith flagship store on Floral Street, Covent Garden. I'll post some pictures when I can!
