The current husband and I had a really lovely day out yesterday and I wanted to tell you about it.
Herefordshire is an hour away by car and every September they hold h-Art ... Open Studios and other art based events. So guide book in hand, off we go...
First stop theliongallery at Leominster
Lovely Gallery filled with very desirable pieces...I was allowed to take a few pictures, please excuse quality...
Does your heart quicken when you see a rack of gorgeous greetings cards like these eric ravilious cards?
How I adore his work.
and more gorgeous cards.
Stunning handmade scarves. Apologies for not knowing who the artist is.
Oh and more cards
lynnmuirs work always makes me happy
I really like how the ladies have bossoms. So clever.
Ceramics to cry for.
Again, apologies for not knowing the artist's names.
These pieces are so highly detailed, very beautiful.
So out of the Gallery and look, this lovely, hairy beast reminded me of 'Dirk'!
Leominster is a smashing town, chock full of antiques centres and quirky little shops.
This shop below is a fairly new one to Leominster...
Just look at the darling bunnies in their beds, in the window!
Onto my favourite village in all England... eardisland
The current husband doesn't know it yet, but we will be moving here sooner or later :-)
Here is he...one man and his dog...
We left Daisy at home with Lucy, as Daisy does not 'do' travelling...
So here is the Button Nose,
cooling off on a very warm, muggy day...
I do so love this place.
Finally, onto therodd The Rodd is the home of the Sidney Nolan Trust. The Sidney Nolan Trust is a registered charity, established by Sidney Nolan in 1985 for the purpose of supporting the work and development of creative artists and musicians.
Printmaking and Book Arts ...we were here to see.
View from car park ...
The exhibition is held in an incredibly beautiful barn.I am very proud to say that my sister had an exhibition of her paper cut work.
Unfortunately, the photos I took of her work did not come out very well, so here is her web site
By now the weather had taken 'a turn' and was throwing it down, which always puts a dampner of things, so home we went.
Really enjoyed the day and topped up my inspiration and mojo levels.
I have been making needlecases, using vintage French mangle cloth...
it has a beautifully smooth soft cotton feel to it, with a nice red stripe running along one edge. Love.
Felt in the mood to collage a few envelopes too!
Well, I have to thank everyone very much, who took the time and trouble to leave wonderfully kind and supportive comments on my last post.
Thank you so much to each and every one of you.
Thank you too to new Followers and all you lovely folks that stop by for a read too.
