Eat your Heart Out, over 18's cake shop...

Me and Dan went to the worlds first over 18's cake shop today, with some inventive cake creations. Notably the small bloody hearts and chocolate poo's on sticks:

New Flat, Old Furniture


I got myself this bargain of a chair for £3! And a rather dirty old school desk..


I painted the chair in gloss white and patched up the tear with some polka dot ribbon.




The desk has some comical graffiti on the inside that I decided to leave, but the chewing gum I chiseled off.


So now we've a pretty cool study desk for those dissertations.


I also picked this up from a charity shop for £3.50. Gave it a coat of white and pasted some patterned paper to the top.


Unfortunately a bird decided to crap on it. Isn't that meant to be lucky?



But it was saved! And looks quite groovy.

No Car, No signal. Whats a girl to do?



Print!
I spent the afternoon with the colour red and an off cut of wood. I'm feeling very London/Britannia/Kitsch recently and therefore focused on the mini and route master. I have some yellow ink too so expect to see some Orange Beetles soon...

Lomography Carnaby and SeaArt



Entered a Lomography competition to get some of my snaps in the London Carnaby store. The picture of the store wall is a bit unclear and I can only work out 2 of my photos for sure. I also know that Dan and Tom were successful. Hopefully one of us will make it into the shop to see them soon, in the mean time many a Londoner can enjoy Dan's short shorts.





In other news I have 3 pieces of work in Ramsgate at the Belgium Bar on show for SeaArt. Another fisheye of Dan, a chalk carving and some plates. Hopefully I'll make a sale.

Bored in Thanet (?)



If you are stuck for things to do in Thanet (likely) then I recommend a visit to the Harbour Arm Gallery, see Helder Clara’s (Flickr) installation of knitted jellyfish made from recycled fabrics. Its open every afternoon and evening and he is really friendly for a chat about the work. If you are lucky he will close the gallery doors and reveal another aspect of the works.

After that a visit to the Old Midland Bank Pilgrims Hospice bookshop where Dan picked up a McCartney world tour program from the 80’s for £1.50.

Finally ‘Be calm and have a cupcake’ in the very Cath Kidston inspired chic cupcake cafe in the old town.

Collect

Enjoying the latest issue of Crafts Magazine at 55:



Inside is an article about Collect at the Saatchi which I dragged Dan too sometime back in May. We saw a £1000 coat hanger a necklace made of cut up colouring pencils. See somemore here.



At Collect I also found the exhibition catalogue for Slash Paper under the knife, which I saw in New York (and have previously blogged about) The catalogue sold out and was out of print, I hunted for months to find one. So I was really excited to find a copy at the Collect book shop for £40. Today I thought I would check out if the book had gone back into print and searched Amazon. I found this.

Surely not?
