I am sad to announce that due to lack of time, conrtibutors and posts, junkshop is closing down. Please visit MY OTHER BLOG for the same pretty, fun things. Promise. Bye bye blogland xxxx
Chelsea brought me this dress back from Brazil earlier this year. She found it in a second hand market somewhere. She also found me a teeny tiny St Christopher, which I have misplaced. (I’m sorry). I will find it. The dress needs a little sewing on the side, which I will get around to very shortly. I love the collar and the pocket with the brown piping. I also really love the hilarious see-through buttons. I wonder who used to wear this gem.
Exams begin on Thursday, and no one in the house can study. Or, more honestly, no one wants to study. It’s been raining solidly since yesterday afternoon and the cabin fever is official. So, obviously, the most natural thing to do is to turn to origami.
I think I’ll submit this for the Joburg leg of Night of a Thousand Drawings.
I bought this drawing from Night of 1000 drawings in Cape Town last night. I’m sure you all know about it, but if you don’t, it works like this: You sumbit an A5 drawing, drawn with anything on anything. The drawings are collected and exhibited on one night, where they’re sold for R100 each. The proceeds go to charity. It was a really lovely evening and there were great bands and DJs and things happening on each level of the building. My drawing had a name and email on the back and was drawn by a girl called Megan M’Namara. Thanks Megan, I like it a lot.
