I found the work of Peruvian Vacide Erda Zimic when I was in Toronto at Christmas. She makes these amazing necklaces of wrapped bundels of fabric. She also makes felt flowers from waste industrial felt. The flowers come in the forms of brooches and rings. We have a wonderful selection of colours and designs. Yummy!!
Today, February 5, 2010 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Ole Bull!!! The handsome violin virtuoso was born in Bergen, and has provided the inspiration for Oleana - the Norwegian Story. He created a settlement for Norwegians in Pennsylvania that he called OLEANA -- Ole after his father and Ana after his mother. It was Ole Bull's dreams that inspired Oleana - the Norwegian Story.
