Went to China Square flea market today. Haven't been there for some time and there are some new stallholders, including Ah Jing, a sweet old lady who sells her own hand made quilts and bags.
A bag covered with white and fushia rosettes caught my eye even from a distance. Though Singapore is hot and humid all through the year without any seasons, the rosettes reminded me of spring. I didn't even bargain as I thought the price of $16 was actually quite cheap for something that's handmade.
Some seasons back, I caught an episode of Project Runway where a contestant couldn't resist putting rosettes in all her creations. Thought she got too carried away but today, I got carried away.
