My friend Frieda lives on Skiathos island and we hadn't met for quite a long time!
It was great that she came and we met again and did things together!
Here's what we did! It was such a full of fun weekend.
...we went to the International Trade Fair grounds at the Xeirotexnika Fair (a handicraft fair) organized by the creative Ftiaxto ladies who first brought the DIY sites in Greece. First we went around seeing the various stalls and vendors who sold handicraft supplies and handmade things and then we attended a workshop by dear Anna of In My Closet. She showed us how to make a snow globe.
Sis style who are a family enterprise of some former students of mine. Isn't it beautiful? And matches my vintage Danish armchair.
I also bought a lovely pair of earrings made in makrame style by Helen's Macrame Creations.This vendor really had so many beautiful things.
After the Fair we went for pizza at Famigliano
...we went to the beach house. The leaves of the trees had covered the lawn.
Of course we walked the beach looking for sea glass as sea glass was what brought Frieda and I together.Of course we found some.
Barca thought it was summer and she went in!
On Sunday we went on a tour for the Open House Thessaloniki. That's a tour of buildings with architectural interest in the city.It was their fourth year.
We started early and we were lucky we managed to visit the metro station which is under construction in my area and had huge lines. It was very interesting to see this very important project for our city waiting to finish at some point (in our lifetimes?)
There was a charity bazaar taking place in the premises and here is what I bought, a vintage USSR porcelain piece, I couldn't leave it, it was only a euro!
Then we visited a private residence in the city centre with fantastic views of the White Tower,
and an astonishing shell mosaic floor.Make Creative Spaces,a designer space where one can create their own art or craft using machinery installed in the place.
