A Day at the Art Market

I went with a friend where we saw a lot of really pretty stuff..

There were Jewellery

The owner told me that these decorations are called sun catcher. Apparently , they are traditionally stained glass window-hanging decorations that catch the light in the same way as a stained glass panel, only on a smaller scale.

Don’t you agree that they look so pretty on their own already?

There was also this gorgeous handmade key chains( see above).. the seller said that she carved them herself and she had sold a lot of these… The key chain was also very special in that you can ask her to carve ur name in a mirror-like fashion( think Da-Vinci Code)..

Since it was an art fest kinda event, there would of course be paintings and stuff.
