Here's something I saw on Upper Western Road: Anna's Museum. It's a collection of trinkets and artifacts curated by a child or an adult with interesting handwriting. It's little things like this (the Deans, the isthisyou people, the weird snowmen) I love Brighton for.
Sunday I went to the Art Junky flea market where my housemate Kirsten was exhibiting some of her Stride Designs work. Art Junky was awesome: good cake, fantastic stalls and a roaming band – imagine the coolest jumble sale ever. I picked up some lovely art books by Milly Freeman and Kate Blegvad.
Apart from that the weekend has been quiet. I hurt my back on Friday lugging heavy bags, which has meant I couldn't run today. I'm hoping that gets better very soon.If you want to follow what I'm up to, sign up to my mailing list

Anna is very pleased you like her museum. She is now 9 years old and fills our house with her collections. Most of the things she has found herself, but a lot are gifts from friends, and now from very kind passers-by. That is something we like about Brighton too.
A while ago we had a brilliant collection of Popeyes, loaned by my brother Peter, and we always do a sweet Nativity Scene with Godzilla and other toys.
I love this museum too! I saw it when i visited Brighton in November 2010 and thought it was wonderful. Congratulations to Anna. I have added it to my museum flickr page….
