The Finders Keepers spring/summer markets were held at CarriageWorks in Sydney this weekend, so I went along to get my fix of design goodness! As expected there was lots of creative talent on display and it was very hard to limit my purchases! Though I was very restrained and only bought one item—a print by the lovely Emma Leonard. I would love to have taken photos of all the stalls but there were just too many and it was quite crowded, so if you weren’t lucky enough to attend, here is a taste of what you missed! I’ll be back tomorrow with more!
Paper installation by the paper convention collective.
Design by Roger & Peach.
Homewares by Mr & Mrs White.
Whoa! So many notes on my last couple of posts.
Thanks to everyone who liked or reblogged my work, I wasn’t expecting anyone to even notice me, you made my week!
And I have a confession. Technically this isn’t my first blog. Although the other one is all about photos so this is the first time I’ve sat down, thought about something, written it down and shared it.
‘once upon a week‘ is a collaboration between four friends. We all started out living in the same city but slowly the geographical distance between us grew. We started ‘once upon a week’ as a way to keep in touch.
Each week one of us chooses a word, then we create a triptych showing our interpretation of that word.
Check it out! or even start one yourselves, it’s a fun way to keep in touch.
I really don’t like the idea of books being thrown away (or a lot of other things for that matter!). I know they can be recycled but their original beauty is lost, so I have been working on some papercuts that use old maps, books and other random scraps of paper—that would otherwise be thrown away—to create little pieces of art.
What do you think?
Hopefully people will see that just because something is no longer useful in it’s present form, it doesn’t mean it has no use at all.
