The Day After

It's a bit ironic that on the Saturday night that I invite friends over for crafting, that no one has a camera and although I have several, not one is pulled out to mark the evening.  Argh!  It still is a great evening and last night was another one where we spent more time talking than crafting and strangers arrived and friends left.  Fills the heart, for sure.

I'm home from Bermuda (work, yes work) and happy to be home for a while until May and Inspired Artist.  Here are a few pics from Portobello Road Market in London:



This booth of printers blocks is where I spent WAY too much money.  I just couldn't help myself.


Several booths with old cameras.  And many booths with silver pieces.
Down this road is Mike's Cafe, where I had a wonderful breakfast.
And here are a few photos of the loot I took across the pond, back to Texas.


I loved this set of Roger Bros. spoons plus the odd knife



Cath Kidson goodies, photos and spoons and printers blocks\


Wouldn't that oxo box make a good doll body! 
Loved this stamp and there's some fabric below that looked interesting.

I spent last Sunday driving through Glenwood Cemetary and found about 25+ angels but I couldn't seem to get the right photo.  Somewhere (of course I can't find it now), I saw someone had a poster of an angel over a bed.  Loved it.  Wanted to recreate it... I'll go back and try again on the photos.

And finally, I would like to share one of my favorite FLICKR accounts, someone I found quite a while ago, a pilot (Louis Vest) on the Houston ship channel, who is also an amazing photographer.  Peruse this for a while, especially his Nautical, Maritime set - simply amazing work...you will be inspired.
