Fab 60s stamps bought from etsy

I absolutely adore these 60s stamps that I bought from Whitney Rae on etsy. I'm just getting round to framing them today. I have the wonderful print & pattern blog to thank for these as the wonderful blog featured these a few weeks ago.

All my screen prints are now reduced

A few months ago I was advised by several contemporary galleries to drastically increase my prices as I was told I was far too cheap for the gallery market. I found this very difficult to do as I like my work to appeal to the public in general, not just the expensive gallery market. After much consideration, I've now gone back to my old prices. I feel in hind sight that I was ill advised. Jane

Bjorn Wiinblad pictures

I've always been a huge fan of the Danish artist and ceramic designer Bjorn Wiinblad. I was lucky to find these two framed pictures by him (obviously prints) at a local Jumble Sale last weekend. They're from the 60s. The vase and poster by him I've had for years now.

Vintage 60s snap cards

Am thrilled with my recent vintage Galt toys snap cards find from the 60s. I'm going to frame some for my daughter's bedroom. These images give me no end of pleasure. I think I should have been born in the 60s!
