Docklands Walk

So couple of weekends back we finally used our Groupon coupon for a Docklands Walk with UrbanGlue. Here are a few pictures. I've never really explored the Docklands before and it turned out to be an interesting exploration. Among other things we came across The Tate & Lyle factory that invented the sugar cube. It is interesting how we take for granted simple things like that but what a significant invention it would have been at that time! I love knowing weird quirky things about London like that. The Thames Water barrier was another place I can't believe I haven't visited before. I would definitely recommend the walk to everyone.

Getting ready for Renegade Craft Fair

Thought I'd remind everyone that it's only a week left to Renegade Craft Fair London. I am in full on preparation mode at the moment. Trying not to panic but really excited at the same time. Another reason being that I'll be launching first of my two new collections for Autumn / Winter 2011. I've been working on this collection almost since the beginning of the year and I am really happy how it's turned out. All of those you cannot make it to Renegade London 8-9th October, I'll share pictures of the new product line soon!

Sunbury Antiques Fair

So this Tuesday I woke up really early to finally make a trip to the Sunbury Antiques Fair at the Kempton Race course. It's only a 45 mins train ride from Waterloo station but I would serious recommend going there with a van and loads of cash! I don't have a car and don't drive but I'm planning to beg friends if I have to for my next trip! I was like a kid in a candy shop. It was seriously better than what I expected and HUGE and very fairly affordable prices. From the bizarre to functional, Indian to Mid-Century there is something for everyone.

By the end of the morning my blue Ikea bag was full of goodies including a Vintage Indian cola drink (Thumbs Up) crate, some matchbox Ephemera, an Old Teacher's Whisky wooden box and a few old tea towels for photo shoot props. I just can't wait to go back.

A London Walk...

A few weeks ago armed with my Holga and some black and white film, I went for a photography walk with my friend Ben. It turned out to be great day because even though I've been living in London for more than 5 years now... I ended up discovering some hidden gems. Ben's lived in London for more than 20 years and his love affair with the city is very unique. Ben loves architecture and his knowledge and point of view was an amazing discovery. Our walk was mostly confined to the City of London.

Cloth Fair - Smithfields

This gorgeous 17th century house that survived the great fire. But the best thing about this place is that for 6 million it can be yours as it's for sale at the moment.

Lady at Postman's Park

Part of the "Melancholy London" is the Postman's Park which has the memorial for Heroic self sacrifice.

30 Cannon St

Standing at the edge of Cannon St. & Queen Victoria St. and really looking at this gorgeous building for the first time.


Some discoveries were my own... like this "like sign" made out of post it.

St. Paul's Reflection

Even though I've been to St. Paul's countless time what was new was this glass monster of a shopping centre that's opened up recently!

Tower near St. Pauls

And saving the best for last is this Church tower of Christ Church Greyfriars. Turns out that, not only was this designed by Sir Christopher Wren but is now someone's home!!! And wait for it... It is up for sale for £4.5 million!! If I had the money I would buy that place in a heartbeat!!! Imagine owning a home that was designed by one of the most important architects of English history! And of course the views of the City from the top of the tower would be to die for! I know Mr. S would love it... But wonder how Mr. B my cat would take living in it?? Check out all the inside images here.

Tiffin Ceramic side plate

Chai Kettle Ceramic side plate

Fan Ceramic side plate

Ever since my trip back home to India after 3 years I've been meaning to illustrate and design a collection inspired by food, patterns, colours, object, street art of India. There are so many iconic objects and images that I love and I just want that to be my starting point. I'm having fun creating random objects that I like and drawing them using pixel art. Watch out for this space for more patterns, ideas, designs...

My Life in Pummelvision

My Life in Pummelvision from justnoey on Vimeo.

Came across this fantastic new tool (via lomokev) called Pummelvision where they link all your flickr photos and create a kind of a montage video. Looks like so much fun and it shows the journey I've taken as a photographer but also made me realize that I don't take enough photos!

These are a few of our favourite things... DIY Doodled Table

Here are more photos of our center table I doodled all over. So the story behind the table is very different from what it looks like today. Mr. S  & I had this Ikea table as our TV stand in the last flat and when we moved to this new one there was no place to keep it. So for months it was disassembled and kept in storage. And we were almost gonna sell it for a fiver (the original price is about 30 quid) on Gumtree when we thought let's play around with it a bit and if we mess it up it can  just go in the bin. The original idea was to spray paint the top with chalk paint and have it as an interactive table. It would have been a perfect solution for Mr. S's list making! Haha! Anyway we did indeed first spray paint it with chalk paint at first but because this is a cheap Ikea table the top layer is actually paper. So when I drew on it with chalk pen I couldn't erase it because the paper was absorbing all the chalk pen ink! Anyway to cut the long story short we had to paint over it again and this time I drew something that would remain permanent! Here is the result!
