Summer flowers

                           It's summer and lots of flowers are blooming. I enjoy to see them when I walk on the streets, and I found the flowers in this year are blooming more beautiful than usual year.
I guess that is because of the rain and temperature,we had colder and more rainy days in the spring.

The poppies at someone's garden were awesome.

Free shipping campaign is now on my store.

Risa Salsberg's art works

Risa Salsberg, is  Vancouver based mixed media artist.
I saw her works and greeting cards at Robson square market.

I bought one of her cards, her illustrations are minimum and unique, 
the simple lines remind me Japanese style illustrations.
According to her website, she has studied with the Buddhist nuns in a Zen temple in Tokyo.

From her website,  "Drift" series.

You can see more her cards on her etsy store also.

Craft market tour

This month is local craft market tour month.
I'll do lots of markets,
last week I was at "Fab fair"on Main street Vancouver,
it is 7year's running show.The vendors were fantastic!

This coming weekend(11,12 June),
I'll be at"Robson Square artisan market".
This is my first time to join in them, they will continue through the summer until September.
It locates in the heart of Down Town,
not only for local shoppers, it will be a great tourist spot,  people can find special souvenirs made by local artists.
They also have performers and musicians.

On Sunday 19th,
I'll be Fort Langley in Vancouver.
It called Bloom market.
This is my first time to participate this show ether, their "designer spotlight" article on their website is fun to look at.
