My take on wax prints

I love Wax prints and schweschwe fabric probably a little too much.  Especially judging my collection.  So now instead of buying more I faff about designing my own.

One of my hero's - Ansel Adams


NO MAN HAS THE RIGHT TO DICTATE WHAT OTHER MEN SHOULD PERCEIVE, CREATE OR PRODUCE, BUT ALL SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED TO REVEAL THEMSELVES, THEIR PERCEPTIONS AND EMOTIONS, AND TO BUILD CONFIDENCE IN THE CREATIVE SPIRIT.

Very simple Stand Design utilising recycled, shaped pallets and recycled construction grade plywood for flooring.  
It was a massive stand but really simply done and the solid black walls worked well.

Didn't write down this stands name but loved the hospital inspired style shelving and the plants bags

Ij Second Hand Market in Amsterdam

Possibly the best 2nd hand market I have ever been to.  This post is a little late as I was there back on the 22nd of July but never the less here is a whole wonderful selection of photos.

Open on the Third Weekend of every month from 0900 till 1630
Take the Ferry from just behind the Main Station in Amsterdam - it's the gate on the furthest left hand side.  And it's FREE!  Take your bike with too.
Do also cruise around and check out all the wonderful bars and restaurants on the water on that side. Have time for drinks and dinner over there.
