a little collection

Here’s a little collection of new, second hand and home made pictures and prints on a wall.

The giraffe and elephant prints are by Me and Amber, and they were purchased a number of years ago at the Melbourne Design Market which used to be in the car park at Federation Square.  Looking online, this doesn’t seem to exist any more, but there is Markit on on Sunday 25 May 2014, at Federation Square that seems to be a very similar concept (maybe someone knows …).

The St Kilda prints were bought at an op shop, the little book cut out of the boy and dog were hand made by me and some other mums for the craft stall at our school art show, and the wonderfully creative caterpillar drawing was done by one of my children.  I love this picture.  All the legs and feet!

The frame for the caterpillar also came my way second hand.  I bought it at the Wales Street Primary School trash and treasure stall a couple of years ago.  My sister has invested in a mat cutter, so I borrowed that and used matting that I bought at Reverse Art Truck.  Now, there’s a great place to visit!  For about $30 you can fill a garbage bag with whatever is in stock.  It is a GREAT place for matting, cardboard off cuts, dowel, smaller pieces of timber and compressed wooden boards, foam off cuts, leather off cuts and loads of other stuff.

So many second hand stories behind one little collection on a wall …
