A peek into some pieces that can be seen in the British Museum section on Africa. The BM is so, so big it doesn't matter how many times you go by: there's always a new room to see, or an object you hadn't seen before.
So here's some images of textures, patterns and materials.
Carved wooden door from Nigeria, 20th century:
Swordfish mask, Nigeria, 20th century
Cowrie shells elephant mask from Cameroon, 20th century
PS: REMEMBER THE GIVEAWAY! Link on your left!
It is ON.
It is only fair that if I've been so very lucky this week (Design*Sponge, Modish, my first various sales, blog look updates, etc.) I pass on some luck.
So, I am having my very first giveaway.
- How does it go?
Visit my store; come back here and comment under this post: say what would you NOT like from my store and why. Make sure I've got a way to find you back (either by signing with your blogger ID, or by leaving the name of your etsy shop or by visiting daily so that you'll know if you've won. I would not recommend publishing your personal info, just in case). The result will be published on Saturday 1st of Nov (given that there's at least 50 comments).
- What do you get?
Well, you can get any print from my shop. We could even arrange for you to have printed any of the black and white drawings available as originals at the moment of the announcement.
PS: Come on, be nice, answer the poll on the left <= Sholud I change the blog's name to No Side Up? There are quite a lot named Home is where the heart is...!
Ladies and gentleman, the all knowing Jena from Modish has been absolutely amazing and marvellous and posted this bit about her favourite pieces of my Etsy shop. Isn't that outrageously fantastic?
Thanks, thanks, thanks, Jena.
I was going slightly mental today because I moved on from no sales to a quick succession of 4. I was wondering: really, what is this.
And "this" is the ever great Design Sponge!
Grace has put me up there again!
I am overflown with joy.
Thanks, thanks, thanks.

It's been a lovely, busy and exciting weekend. I've been at the designersblock exhibition and party (that is extremely unusual in me, I get sleepy very easily); and what's more... I'VE HAD MY FIRTS SALES IN ETSY!!!! I'm extremely thrilled and happy and thankful.
Don't tell anybody I've taken this pic.
This is how one of the most important design shows in london looks less than 24 hrs away from the press release!
If you are in London this weekend, do come by!
Designersblock is in Covent Garden's piazza, n.1.
And if you do pass by, say hi (Kith Kin area)!
Camilla has been a colleague of mine in Central St. martins and she's got out of there as a star. This piece is hard work and she's finally got the video demonstrating how it works in her brand new website.
