This week . . .

Last Sunday I was in Caldecott Park in Rugby for ‘Art in the Park’, a celebration of local artists surrounded by beautiful trees. This was my first ever experience of having a stall outside being completely uncovered, so we were really lucky to have the sun shining all day. It was great to get some […]

Check out these gorgeous Folksy shops below, where I’ve selected some of my favourite tree related pieces. Get ready to drool! Picture “Tree” by Art in Hands A […]

As autumn approaches…

As well as working on new stock for upcoming fairs, I have also enjoyed making some one-off custom pieces for customers. Although I love receiving […]

The gorgeous red, yellow and orange colours from the leaves are a rare treat when autumn comes, because they are all gone before you know it! That Christmassy feeling is definitely in the air now, there are Christmas songs being played in […]

During the quiet period of the craft fair at Castle Ashby on Sunday afternoon, I took the opportunity to wander around the gardens and take some photos. If you’ve never visited the gardens of Castle Ashby House, I would definitely recommend it as a day out, the views are simply stunning! It wasn’t until I […]

Trip to Country Park

Yesterday we went for a walk around a local country park. As usual we picked the wrong time to go, it had been raining the night before so it was a bit muddy, but it was nice to be out in the peaceful fresh air. We followed the numbered trail, Came across some rather unusual […]
