As it turns out...I have my first exhibition in less than 4 weeks - 26 days. Pause and breathe. These last few days I have been thinking about whether it's possible to get occupational overuse syndrome from embroidering...
Anyhoo, as I squirrel away cushions and such in preparation for said exhibition, I have been searching for sparkles to be inspired by. There are so many new and vintage pretty pretty things being handmade by clever people who bless me with their online shops. If I was not saving pennies for my August trip to Europe (topic of fun future blogs) I would be waiting by my mailbox for these pretty sparkly objects to arrive.
Then this evening I stumbled across an article highlighting the growth of 'handmade' in Hong Kong! Two of my favourite things - Hong Kong, sigh, and handmade. Then, to my absolute delight, the article described an organisation started by an American living in Hong Kong to work with disadvantaged local women. And their products are stunning. STUNNING! Please excuse the all-capital excitement just recorded, but you have to see these things. I am regenerated by these incredible bags.
So I leave you with these goodies - Bez & Oho. Drool away friends, drool away. My personal fave is the last photo...sigh. I am truly inspired.
