I had a lot of interest in the mohair blankets and have sold quite a few already.
Also found a very interesting designer who uses vintage leather belts to make floor tiles amongst other tings so check out http://www.tinglondon.com/ to get a closer look.
I attached a few photos above but the web pages are really worth having a look at.
I also found a fab web shop called http://www.etsy.com/ where you can sell you own home made things and vintage items. There are some fantastic things for sale and a great alternative to EBay I would say.
I spent most of today trying to edit this blog and found it so frustrating.Cannot find a decent picture of myself to post on the blog.Went out and bought some black and white photos instead.I am going to hang them on the wall in our bedroom in Spain as a little reminder of our 6 months here in Russia.Mind it is raining so much today I am not sure I want a reminder.
My mom phoned to say she has been offered to go into partnership and set up a new interior design shop in my home town of Stavanger.She has immaculate taste and would design an amazing shop.I will keep you all posted .
Here is my favourite photo from todaysshopping trip anyway.It is an image of a submerged town on the Volga river and a typically Russian babuscha washing her clothes.I love it and can just imagin it in a chocolate colour frame
After having come back to Moscow for a second season it was time to find out what the local markets had to offer.Every saturday and sunday there is an arts and craft market at Partisanskaya metro.
I went along this weekend and found some wonderful handknitted kashmere rugs.They come in the most fantastic colours, from light grey to chocolate brown and ar as soft as you can imagine.
I bought two of them and will attempt to post the photos on the web to entise you all.They also have fantastic vintage leather belt which I may just spend a fortune on and I will show you some of these next week.
I had thought about starting a blog for quite some time but didn't really know what I would put in it or what the purpose would be.
One thing I was aware however was that I am in a very fortunate position where I can travel the world with my partner and always come across beautiful things.Sometimes at a market or in a shop and sometimes just driving around looking at buildings, country side or people.I never used to bring a camera but after moving to Moscow I started to realise that I was missing out on wonderful photo opportunities everywhere.
So, hopefully I will overcome my fear of computers and start a blog of what we experience.
If i ever work out how to set up an web shop too it will be even better.
Bear with me for now and we will see what happens.Kamilla
I am 37 years old and living with in Moscow with my partner for most part of the year.However due to his work we travel the globe and have yet to find our roots.When we are not in Moscow or travelling we spend most of our time in our house in Spain.We get plenty of time to visit family and friends in Scotland and Norway as well as spending long holidays in the south of France.
