Miss Gladys

I'm sure this is part of Fringe.....but I was wandering along Rundle Street yesterday and saw these marvellous pieces in the window of Miss Gladys. I should have really jotted down the names of the artistos...........but if you too are wandering along Rundle Street you could stop and check it out.

Second week at school....

So it's now almost the end of the second week of studying at TAFE. And I love it! Above and below are my second attempts at charcoal from my Drawing Foundation class. I'm rather pleased with myself. And can't wait to see how much I improve by the end of term.

And some really really exciting news, in another class called "Concept" our first project is "The Creature Feature". We have to produce a hand-made "creature" as a form of self-portrait. Couldn't be better!

Happy Valentine

Here is something I made for my valentine. I found an amazing box of alphabet stamps and away I went. The idea was somewhere on blogland, can't for the life of me remember where I saw it. But this is my version. A little bit wonky here and there...........was a little worried seeing my valentine is actually a gifted Art Director in advertising land. But thankfully he loves it.

One more sleep to my first school day. I'm a litte worried seeing I almost nodded off listening to everything at orientation. How the heck am I going to go in my first 4 hour lecture starting at 9am tomorrow?!!!!

Vintage and Fashion Fair

So on Sunday I trotted off to North Adelaide to the Vintage & Fashion Fair. It's in a lovely old building called Estonian House.

There were lots of stalls of great bits and pieces. Buttons, hats, handbags, vintage patterns, scarfs, lots of jewellery and more. I was lucky enough to find this vintage fabric. A to Z in vegetables and fruit! Funny.

It's well worth a visit. They are happening the second and fourth Sundays every month. The next one being February 14th.
