New art

Picked these up at the SIZE MATTERS III: the end is nigh exhibition at the SWICH Contemporary Art Space. A great source for small affordable art by local artists. Here’s a closer look using images from SWICH’s facebook page… the flare off the acrylic is killin’ me.

More rug and a peeved pooch

Mickey’s on a diet. He needs to loose a couple of kilos. He’s not happy because it is Christmas and there are tasty smells coming from the kitchen. He does like the new rug though. So do I. Still scraping the floor. I’ve had to stop for today and tidy up. We’re eating lunch in here. What was I thinking starting a “small” job just days before Christmas?

Merry Christmas me :)

Quick snap via iPhone of my new kilim. On sale online. I had a discount code too so I had to buy it. I promise. It’s 4.6 m long and 1.6 wide and it’s perfect for the breezeway. But … we had to take up the black and white check vinyl because of damage and black mould. (Everyone assumes they are tiles but it was just old scuffed vinyl.) Now we have to scrape the old paint off the concrete floor. Not all of it. I like old painted concrete floors but this stuff is super flaky. Guess what I’m doing on my Christmas break? Shots of it in the room soon.
