Welcome to The Jabberwocky In Another Place

As the heading says Welcome to Jabberwocky In Another Place.

This is doubly relevant  as I now live in another place ie. in Kazakhstan as from last Sunday and my blog is now in another place ie. WordPress instead of Blogger. I have had to start a new blog over here as I have problems accessing Blogger from here in Kazakhstan. Not only can I not continue my own blog but I am not going to be able to leave comments on Blogger blogs either which is a shame as there are so many out there I love.

I hope that eventually all the folks who liked to follow my Blogger blog will find their way over here. If you do WELCOME!!

At the moment we are still waiting for our packing cases to arrive from UK with my art stuff in so I am quite limited as to what I can make, I have just a few marker pens, charcoal pencils and a couple of journals that I brought in my suitcase! So no art from me just yet.

However on an arty theme today there was a craft fair at a local museum, I went along full of curiosity to see what the local craft people make and I was not disappointed. There was LOTS of felted things from shoes with pointy curled up toes, I have to have a pair of those at some time, to wall hangings, to jackets, to cushion covers, to scarves, I tried on a lovely one that was silk with a fab felt flower and felt leaves hanging from it, I was very tempted but I resisted, there is plenty of time! There were also lots of carpets and rugs, shawls, hats, toys, jewellery…..oh the jewellery…………I bought a silver and enamel ring……….I REALLY wanted another piece but it was $250……..another day maybe!

Another thing there was a fair amount of was pottery and I was tempted with was this little teapot from Uzbekistan!

Can’t wait to see some of the jewellery you purchase over the 3 years you are there LOL. Ian is hoping he saves some money as I do not have my gardening buddy here, he presumes with you not being here I will stay in more, mmmmmm don’t know about that. See you soon mate. Tracy x

    Your teapot is GORGEOUS!
