After an early breakfast with girlfriends at Bakba, I went to take a peek at Magnolia Square, a market where local designers and retailers come together to showcase their products. My primary reason for going was to visit a friend of mine who has an amazing stand there, very sadly I left my camera at home so these pics are taken with my phone! Not at all the same I know but gives you a glimpse anyway.
Love this - it is a paper installation as part of the show which evolves as the show goes on:
I have a few prints from Printspace on my walls too. Actually you know what, I do a pretty good job of supporting our local artists (much to Mr Bok's disgust at times - 'you spent how much again?')
I'm afraid I went a bit overboard here at this stand, Vintage Prints. I blame Amber. Their prints are actually pages from vintage books. Some of my old favourites from childhood are here! How could I resist!
Then there are some of the more modern books...Richard Scarry is one Master Bok's favourites.
I nearly took this home but ran out of funds very sadly as I LOVE it.
I picked also up a necklace for Miss Bok from Dick and Dora - a lovely big bright orange one.
This paper installation is gorgeous, the butterfly lamp is brilliant.
So I'm traipsing off home now...with my garlands...my orange necklace...and a few vintage prints!
I took the garlands from Down to the Woods home with me and had a play with them cos I love to play!
They definitely belong inside with us! Where they will merrily join me on many adventures draped around my neck pseudo-scarf style (if I can bear the itching...)
Hallway much better jazzed up with garlands!
