What a fun weekend! I always enjoy hanging out with other artists/crafters. Sometimes the best part of doing a show is the neighbors.This show is held twice a year in the backyard garden of a couple of crafty women.
For some years there has been an evolving group of artists who come and show here. Everyone invites their friends and followers. Some members have moved away and return to town to do the show. It has the feel of a family reunion and party with art. We have delicious snacks and live music.
Come on in. I'll introduce you to some of my neighbors.
|Jena Massengill (Grateful Threads) combines denim clothing and Hawaiian shirts with beautiful results. By the end of the weekend, several of the other artists were wearing her irresistible pieces.|
|The beads sparkled so beautifully in the sun. Each one has amazing detail. And, oh, the colors!|
|Laurie Mount makes bath salts, body lotions, and a variety of delicious things to eat: jams, jellies, chutney, and candies. Her toffee is to die for! I think everyone who has ever been to this show has walked away with some of Laurie's creations. You can read her food blog here: http://laurieslittlekitchen.blogspot.com/|
|This beautiful mosaic table is the work of Nadja Stanchfield, who is one of our hostesses for this event. The garden is full of color with her delightful Pique Assiette mosaics.|
|Nadja's mosaic license plate frames are very popular.|
|Nancy Worden was new to the show this time, but fit right in with the garden. Her fun handknit market bags seemed right at home here.|
|Bev Wesley entertained us with her ukulele music and songs. She has a good sense of humor and always has something new to sing for the group, which we really enjoy!|
|Here are a few of Bev's pendants. She has a great eye for combining stones and beads into her jewelry.|
|This little bird flew in from next door and roosted in my tent. It is the work of Jeannette Jennings (Firecat Pottery) and inspired by Mayan bird designs. Jeannette makes an array of ornaments, tableware, and tiles. You can visit her website here: www.FirecatPottery.com|
