I have been out and about on Saturday I want to a craft fair at Capesthorne Hall never been before but we loved it, they do weddings and have lots of events this bank holiday it was a Craft fair here is a photo of some of my crafty buys. Next week end they are having a Country Fair (sounds like fun!)
This is a close up of some of the great value buys I thought these were just terrific for the price I had to get them lol but you all know that feeling don't you? ;0) I am going on a steam punk/jewelry craft work shop in May and I thought these would be super (look at these watch faces two for 50p so I bought two packets of each. I have been buying lots for this week end so much coming next week and then after that? Paris so NO MORE SPENDING from me, but I have plenty to keep me very busy.
Now I asked permission to take this photo I love this guys work I have one piece already (Will show you in a min) and while there I couldn't resist I bought another, if you click and have a look you will see why I had to cave in such beautiful work. I think a treasured antique of the future!
This is the one I already had, 'Daisy Fairy'
And this is the one I bought yesterday 'Grass Fairy' the artist is Gary White I think this art is totally original (no two pieces are the same) I haven't seen any other artist working with resin in this way and hey, I love fairy's so if you buy art because you love it then your on a winner he does some wonderful dragons, knights as well as castles (this is large work and fairly expensive), just thought I would share this with you, I know so many of you also love fairy's.
This is Capesthorne Hall we went in for a look around (not allowed to take photos inside) so take my word lots of inspiration I loved this house. This weekend there was a craft fair but I think we will be going back next Saturday too as there is a country fair on. Hubby and I love to get out if I am well enough so fingers crossed we will get to enjoy this view again.
The grounds were equally as beautiful, with a huge lake and so many things to photograph but I thought you may like to share the 'Blue Bell walk' I swear I saw a fairy's wing as she scuttled off! I hope you also had a wonderful Bank holiday weekend.
Oh and one last thing to share, I found a TT but I have lost it (I do that so often) It was a little TT about how to use your sewing machine in a different way. I have an attachment to cover the teeth on my machine some have a button to lower the teeth. I also removed the foot. The kinda free sewn this stamped image, now this is the first time so isn't great but now I know how to convert my sewing machine I may try this technique again. I love to try new things and I am a bit of a technique junky lol. My problem is with my illness I forget more than I remember so frustrating but it does mean I am usually doing some thing new lol I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my BH weekend and I will be back soon with some crafting goodies to show you enjoy what's left of your week end it's gone decidedly grey here (typical BH weather in the UK) Love Dawn xx
