{Broom Broom}

 So you may remember I mentioned Stanley had some beautiful little shops to Ooooh and Aaaaah over. There is one in particular that i enjoyed and it was The Brown Dog. This place used to be an artist co-op that manged to survive for quite a while but is now a more up-market gift shop with looovely things. 
This little thing in particular I spotted a while back at Nest in penguin but the last time i went back to claim my own she didn't have any left in stock, sad face. So when i found it again I snapped it up. It's a little vintage car and caravan brooch set by lovehate.
 I never intended it to be an actual brooch, i don't really wear many brooches. It now resided on my wall in an embroidery hoop next some other art works. I may just change the doily yet but it was fine for the picture to show you guys.

Another piece of art has gone up on my walls...you may recognise it as one of my works from the Mad Hatters exhibition. The exhibition has ended at the Wonders of Wynyard Building and has moved over to Artscape for November and will be put up after the market this weekend. Any-hoo some of the larger works had to come back to the owners so my tea towel work is looking all fancy on my wall. Please excuse the wood panels {it makes me head tick a bit, they are all through this house}. Slowly I am paining them all white and I am sure the wall hanging will look amazing in that spot once it sits on a freshly painted wall.
Did you get arty this weekend?
