Treasures from my travels

There was no doubt that my trip around the world would involve me returning with a ruck sack bulging with goodies! Here’s some of my favourites finds.

20140227-150622.jpg Chinese girl from Yangshou – I think I got a set of five for about 50p.

20140227-151133.jpgYou can’t beat a good magnet, or two! Direct from Alcatraz, San Francisco.

20140227-151258.jpgJapanese cigar card poster from the Ad Museum Tokyo (ADMT) – it was a pretty cool place to visit too.

Double whammy – yellow vase with eggshell dragonfly from Hoi An (which truly is a shoppers paradise) and Chinese paint brushes from Chongqing; I have every intention of trying them out on a silk scarf soon, so watch this space.

20140227-153915.jpgOpium pipe from Siem Reap in Cambodia – again the markets here were fab.

20140227-154620.jpgI had to get my own Terracotta Warrior from Xi-An.

20140227-154746.jpgAnd finally, my very own Karl Marx coin (randomly from Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar and not Russia) and my clay good luck charm from the Witches Market in La Paz, Bolivia.

As you can imagine, these are just a few of my finds. Just wait until I get all of my artwork up and framed 😉
