I wanted to show you pictures I took, of my fav artists' work at shirehall Stafford.
It made me smile, but also made me want to cry, as I adore all of the following artists' work...
Julie Arkell, Lucy Casson, Janet Bolton, Abbott and Ellwood.
There were other pieces from various artists, but I have been self indulgent and just posted pics of my particular favs :-)
Such a mouth wateringly, inspiring Exhibition.
couple of purses popped into my online shops.
I have been holding onto stuff that I have made recently,
calling all you Shropshire Lads and Lasses!!!
I will have a stand at the Crafty Vintage Market,
this coming Saturday 22nd October at Lydbury North.
Looking forward to it very much, as I will be amongst some very fine artists, dealers and their wares.
Hope to see you there.
Thanks so much for stopping by. x
Oh Viv, you must have been in seventh heaven, surrounded by such pretties! Thanks for sharing them. J x
