All things weird and wonderful

 Yesterday my friend Sarah...... of ART OF MOODLING fame..........and I headed to Knighton on the Shropshire/Welsh borders to go to an open studio event. There was lots of fun stuff to see...........first the WEIRD! The angel/cupid thing on the wall above was huge and gaudy and to make it worse THERE WERE TWO OF THEM!
 Then there were these bucket lamps.............I kinda liked these:)

 And this was a ship covered in carpet..........HMS AXMINSTER!

And now the WONDERFUL!
  This piece was entitled............THE VOLES THINK GOD IS DEAD!.....this I really liked:)
The dog in a chess pieces box and all the pieces below are by a fav artist of mine......LUCY CASSON.....Sarah and I wanted to go to one of her workshops but the only 2 she is doing are full:( We did talk to Lucy about future workshops so fingers crossed.

 I LOVED these crows!

 The Pastry Cook!!

Lucys little figures all have such character!
Another fabulous day out......nothing better!

Oh, wow, I do love Lucy's figures, they remind me a little of The Clangers. Are they made from recycled tin?

I rather like the bucket lamps, too!

And the poor Godless voles :(

Somebody is playing music inthere... Love the wall with the little frames. And the voles are precious. Must have been a soul feeding day for the two of you!
