New Arty Friends!

Well my day at the Port Macquarie Artist Market (normally on the 1st SUNDAY of every month) always leaves me gobsmacked at the wonderful and intriguing talent of my fellow stallholders...seriously, they are all fantastic people who love what they do to the point of obsession - this coming from someone who can't totally relax unless she's surrounded in beads, thread and pliers.

I wanted to feature two of my local artist, the first is Peter and Ros from Wongee Place.  Peter is the master designer who works mainly with copper and brass and takes tonnes of inspiration from the natural world around him.   I bought this cuff bracelet from him a couple of months back...I love the gum leaves!

Visit Peter and Ros either on their blog or at the Port Macquarie Artist Market on the first Sunday of every month!

The other fabulous artist that I would love to yap on about is Kerryanne English from Woodberry Designs  She has just moved up from Melbourne and misses the shopping (nothing can compare to Melbourne shopping!) but from looking at her lovely blog it looks like she is enjoying decorating her home and checking out the local beaches.  Kerryanne was exhibiting her gorgeous cupcakes at the market this weekend (so very delightful that you want to eat them....but you must not...because they aren't real food!) but next month she will have her paintings for all to drool over - can't wait to see them!

To finish off, here are a couple of images from yesterdays artist market. I asked my husband to take a few photos of the general loveliness, and even though he doesn't like this kind of vague instruction (not as specific as "Take a picture of the left hand side of the building facing north") he still did a good job.  Enjoy!

Hi Kylie,
How lovely it was to meet you at the market yesterday. It's always nice to meet kindered spirits (AKA.. other crazy arty people), especially now that I have moved to a new town, in a new state and know no-one.

Here I am fresh from your etsy store (drooling and planning my assault on your next market stall) and discovered your blog addy. Well knock me over.... you went and wrote about me too... [giggle].

Thanks for the mention and kind words.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

Hi Kylie I just read about you on Kerryanne's blog. How wonderful that she was able to meet someone who 'gets' her.
