Whoop for Winter Shows!!

|Just a quick post about a couple of shows I'm doing this December 

The first is a group exhibition in Carlow - it's with the Blueprint Art Group and has some really great artists involved. I'm really excited about this - opening is on Friday the 9th of December and runs till the 11th. Do please come if you're in the area!! 

Also the Jordan gals are having their Open Studio once more - it's on in chez Clare so pm me at info(@) for directions. Friday the 9th and Sat the 10th of December - gifts to suit all and you are guaranteed to come home with some extra sparkle in your day(if not from the shopping, from Clare's studio - it's always awash with glitter :-) ) 

Oh and here's a little something to whet your appetite for the group show - some details from my entry, called 'before the rain'

meet Gloria!

It's been a while!

I've been to London, not to see the queen but to show at Country Living Gift Show in Islington. It was great - loads of beautiful stands, lovely support from buyers and sellers alike. Too tired to speak when I got home - immense road trip!! 

So since I've been home I've been chilling with herself and himself, catching up with the new cat, old cat and dog and generally relaxing. 

I've made myself an awesome christmas tree angel though - I'm beginning to get in the spirit of things (finally you may say!) I adore her - her name is Gloria and she's proper lush - hand-stitchd and made from silk fibers, silk dress, vintage buttons, antique sequins, glass glitter, found and previously unloved zips and bits, god I can't wait to get her up onto the tree!! 

Let me know what you think of her!! Still time to get your own for your tree!!

 e-mail me at info  (@)  - prices start from €110!!!

Illustration Friday - Stripes

Today's topic is stripes - I ADORE stripes - have image after image that I could have used for this but I decided to do a new one. 

So this is my new stripe- using a series of scans from my new art pin collection.

I love this - how great a fabric would this be? Too much fun - way too much fun when deadlines are looming and Real work needs to get done. Anyho's - thanks for looking :-)

Autumn Light

I wanted to share a quick couple of pics I took the other day - the light was the great autumn light I keep going on about, I truly adore it - it just coats everything in soft yellowed goodness. 

I got to hang out with the cat for a bit - it's been a while, she's a bit wild but loves a bit of company and a play. 

I've no idea of the names of any of the flowers in our garden, it's my dream that some day I'll be a competent gardener and not just buy 'shake and rake' seed sets (seriously - that was the name on the pack!) Veggies I understand, flowers I do not. It's on my list, along with seeing the northern lights, sailing the high seas, joining the circus and learning to play piano, violin, guitar and double bass. 

In the meantime I hope to be offering some items for sale this week through my newletter so do sign up (link in column on right!) if you want in on it. I'm offering some great discounts and free shipping on some items! Till next time x
