The East Anglians

Last weekend we headed over to the Sainsbury Centre to see The East Anglians, an exhibition of photographs by Justin Partyka.

It was excellent - lots of atmostpheric photos of Norfolk and Suffolk. It definitely captured the East Anglia we know and love, which seems less like 'a largely forgotten rural world', and more like normal rural life to us.

If you're in Norwich, then do pop in and see it. The rest of the Sainsbury Centre is very nice too, and they do splendid cake. And there's a nice shop.


This week we've been busy working on a pile of hardback journals using some lovely decorative papers, and some marbled papers.

This navy blue and cream paper is Jon's favourite.

I love this blue and green marbled paper. My little raku jar is from Jude Allman's Folksy shop.

This splodgy marbled paper in mustard, dark red and navy blue is another favourite at the moment.

Journals in these papers and more are now available to order from our Etsy and Folksy shops.

Thanks for the name checks everywhere guys! Spotted the little jar in a flickr pool and thought, 'hang on, I know that jar!' I've just started a blog and have linked your folksy shop: although I can't guarantee many people will see it from there! my blog is www.potsandpaint.blogspot.com. Always a joy to see your work and to hear about East Anglia, my old homeland. Jude.

Hope your little journals sell like hot cakes or even iced cup-cakes!

Thank you for sharing the link to the East Anglians exhibition. I been browsing through the photograpers web site - he's captured the fields and mud and stubborn farmers with great empathy. I feel all emotional now - my roots have been exposed.

Thanks Jude! I love that little jar so much.

Thanks Celia - the exhibition made me feel strangely emotional too for some reason.

Thanks Dee!
