This is one of my Market Day finds from the weekend. I hummed and haaed a bit, and then decided to buy this little Chinese girl doll. I do not like the pink outfit she is wearing (it is even pinker in real life), so I will try and make a pattern from it, and do it in another colour. The stall owner thinks she is from the 1960's. She has a sweet face and the painting is lovely.
I picked up this little kitsch kittens ceramic from an antiques shop in Bendigo when I went to the Grace Kelly exhibition earlier this year. Both of these little ceramics sit next to each other in one of my display cabinets. They were both filthy when I bought them, so I washed them up in luke warm mild soapy water. The grass on the kittens ceramic was ingrained with dirt that I had to get off with an old toothbrush.
Goodbye from all of us, and see you next time!
