Birthday Quiche

It's one of our favourite C-Monsters birthdays today. So here's something birthday based.

Unfortunately he's not 24. He is however, 24 stone.

Cough Cough

Sometimes the bottom of the tin is more interesting than the tin itself.

Setting Sail for Somewhere

Tonight saw a union of two C-Front favourites; with Chris Bourke's exhibition 'Setting sail for somewhere' opening at the mighty Pure Gallery. 

We headed along, excited to see more of Chris' amazing lino prints and weren't disappointed.
A glorious collection of black & white and hand coloured prints in Chris' unique style, with a vintage matchbox influence. Beautifully incorporating ionic imagery of birds, skulls, hearts, keys, ships and all things Bourke with the usual choice words.

As tends to be the case, we couldn't resist leaving Pure with at least one new addition and picked up a new print to add to our collection, along with a hefty sticker pack. We got side tracked talking to Chris and so forgot to actually take any photos of the exhibition so here's a snap of the contents of the sticker pack.

More pics to follow next time we stop by the gallery, in the meantime check out Chris' site here and the Pure Gallery here.

We like Boys like Dolls

We went for a stroll in the sunshine on our usual route to Tynemouth market, and on the way we came across Boys like Dolls in the Green Ginger Arcade.

Inside was a mixture of authentic retro treasures and ephemera inspired stationery and prints, vintage clothing and accessories, collectables and jewellery. A perfect balance of old and new, beautifully organised and displayed. We couldn't resist a couple of purchases and will definitely be visiting again.

Check out more from Boys like Dolls here.

(Keep your eyes peeled for the panda as he's now an official c-monster and will be making an appearance soon).
