After my spell in Scotland I was still on leave and had a few days at home followed by a little trip to Southwold . I stopped off in Norwich and thought I'd share some of my highlights.
This poster in Jarrolds an independent department store stopped me in my tracks. What a simple delightful way to identify the specialities of an area. This was designed by a Norfolk family but Id love to see one for each county.
They show all the things I think of when visitng East Anglia - particularly those BIG SKIES!
I always look out for independent shops and avoid the high street names and loved this book shop. Called The Book Hive the window contained some hives made from paper which opened to reveal quirky street scenes.
I believe these were the work of a an art student called Justine Austin (hope I have that right - I'm going from memory!)
There were three different ones and each had some found objects on or in it. The first one has little beech nuts hanging down
this one an old brooch and a card with segs (when did you last see any of those?)
and this one lots of matchboxes...
A couple of closer shots but I'm afraid they are taken through the shop window so apologies for the quality.
Where do people get their inspiration and ideas from!
I liked the juxtaposition of these two shops!
And wished I had time to go and see this exhibition!
And wouldn't you love to go into anywhere with an invitation like this at the door? Maybe next time!
Hope you have a great holiday weekend and maybe a sexy little cupcake?
