It's all about the base...

Here's some new work that I have been developing, a paper mache sculpture on a mohogany base.
This one is called, it's all about the base. Dealing with the female form and how body conscious we are. Our vulnerability due to media pressure.
It stands at 12 inches in height and I have really enjoyed making it.
It's a one of a kind piece, that's listed in the etsy shop now and priced to sell.
Enjoy !

The Case of the Missing Tortoise....

About two weeks ago I noticed a post on Facebook, about an owner who had lost her beloved tortoise. I reposted it a few times , and really hoped they would be reunited.

The tortoise went missing in the St Dogmaels Poppit sands area and had been missing for ten days :(

We often do a very large walk from St dogmaels to poppit, but climb to the highest point and then descend to the sea, it's a hard climb but the view is amazing. It takes two hours there and two hours back. We usually spend about three hours walking the beach and drinking tea :) when we land.

It was on our walk back home, that I noticed something very large moving and I just stared, I couldn't believe it ! My son said what is it and I ran down the lane to gather the creature in my arms, as I knew it was the Missing African tortoise :)

With the help of some lovely local people, I found out who her owner was and where, and we walked to her home. She was a very, very heavy tortoise :)

It was a real joy to reunite her with her delightful owner, who had had her for years.

We felt happy and blessed.

Here is Lara, the runaway tortoise :)

Susannah, the most beautiful shop in Bath

Recently I had the privilege of visiting the gorgeous shop called Susannah, on Broad street, in the city of Bath.
It is a stunning shop, inspiring and breath takingly beautiful.

A must for all artisans needing to buy original antique fabric, and for collectors of quilts and antique clothes. Also you will find a remarkable array of antique wedding dresses, infact it is textile heaven.
As well as textile beauties and artisan cushions, you will see amazing furniture, like the stunning hand painted antique dressing table.
The shop and business has been going for many years, and Susannah herself was one of the first collectors and dealers specialising in French fabrics, here in the UK. She has a great deal of knowledge and is one of the most loveliest people I have ever met.
I can't wait to visit her again soon and have been making my wish list :)
She even has makers packs full of antique bits of fabrics and quilts for us artists to play with and she is a regular exhibitor at Selvedge.
If you have never been, I urge you to go and send her my love and best wishes.
Here are alot of photos for you to drool over :)
Have a lovely weekend my friends,
Love always
