My good pal Freddie took me to the private view of this exhibition a couple of weeks ago, and I thought the stuff was splendid! Very simple use of wood and paint, but put together with imagination and finesse. I wanted to buy all the wooden postcard-type pieces, which were named something like "flags of our mothers". The rainbow piece (shown at the top) was my favourite - so clever! It's making me think again about materials, I must not stop using new/unexpected things.

"FIFI AND LOLA'S FINGS WOT ARE NICE" STALL!
Fifi's gingerbread wrapping paper
Better late than never I suppose! I have been fully immersed in Christmas cheer and folly and food, thus creating a back-log in some blogging. I meant to put these up on Christmas eve, but instead I played the secret santa+fizz+inappropriate behaviour game.
Holly and I (or should I say Lola and I) took part in the Shoreditch sisters' WI Xmas Fete on 13th December, which included our little stall pictured above, and lots of mulled wine, some carol singers and then a guy with a double bass playing christmassy choones, and also some classic ones from the Fifi and Lola repertoire. There were animals a plenty, in particular a small fluffy dog (called Fluffy??) and some familiar faces kindly came to show us some support by eating our cakes and buying our stocking fillers and vintage goodies.
FIFI AND LOLA'S FINGS WOT ARE NICE - coming to a craft/vintage fair near you in 2010!
