Saw some Sid Dickens Memory Blocks yesterday

Leonardo da Vinci - Portrait of Cecilia Gallerani (Lady with an Ermine) - WGA12698

Lady with an Ermine by Leonardo da Vinci. Facial detail shown on Sid Dickins Memory Block #T223

I was showing my in-laws around town Friday when we stopped in at Chartreuse Living, a home decor store here in Port Moody. I like going there because they carry Sid Dickens’ Memory Blocks. I especially wanted to show them to my mother-in-law. Their inventory was low, but they had enough to give her an idea about what they are all about. Such excellent craftmanship, as well as exquisitely beautiful artwork. If you’d like to read more about him and his line, click here. His motifs revolve around architectural detail, art masterpieces, seasonal themes. I have my favorites… If you would like to see the full range of Memory Blocks, click here. You won’t be disappointed. It’s a well-designed site and shows his artwork off with lush photography, emphasizing the Old World connection. I am hardly the only fan of his work, though. Below are some other sites that feature him, too. My company left today, I’m resting up and will be back with you tomorrow… In the meantime, check out these sources:
