has recently finished and our lovely town
becomes peaceful again.
The festival is one of the highlights of the year.
Thousands pour into town.
Restaurants and cafes fill to bursting.
The Gallery Trail among the many events going on.
Painters, sculptors, potters....any medium you can think of.....it's here
We exhibit our decoupage.
music around every corner.
Peter Neuner is a particular favourite of ours...quirky
Jubilee Gardens is busy with events all week....
my dad had a car exactly like this!
Michelle made her 60's style dress from an original pattern
Thanks to everyone who organised it.
A great 10 days.
We were busy getting ready not only for the festival...
but for trade customers coming from the US
Our decoupage on 19th century pieces seems to be getting more and more sought after
Which is great for us
Thing is, when Nass goes out to the shop he locks the door
"Stay and get on with all those chests of drawers" He laughs through the window.
It's ok I can get out...it is only a joke
|botanicals are a particular favourite of mine|
We first did one of these for Homes and Garden magazine
Butterflies chests fly out...'scuse the pun
we turn this
into this......gilt and fish chest
We don't only decorate with decoupage...we hand paint tartan sometimes....
Mind boggling to do...but worth it.
then there are the vintage enamel bowls...that we paint and gild and decoupage
We've had a great year.
To be invited to take a space in one of the most prestigious stores in the UK
was incredible....actually lets face it, one of the most well known stores in the world...
Most of the larger pieces are out, but we still have a small collection on the gallery area.
The room seen here is getting prepared for Liberty's well known Christmas shop.
After Christmas we are invited to return.
We will be back into the main room on Liberty's 4th floor.
With a large collection of decorative antiques and some new and beautiful ideas.
Have a great day
and give us a like and a share
