Brighton Artists Open Houses 2010

Well hello! I hope everyone is now beginning to get some regular sunny and warm days and are managing to get out and enjoy some of it too!

As promised here are some images for your viewing pleasure, of my trip to Brighton and around the Artists Open Houses with my sister.

The oh so essential handy guide to all the trails and houses

comfy shoes a must! (Thanks mum and dad, they are sooooo comfortable!)

sunny streets to walk along

gorgeous tasty markets to wander through

cool footwear to spy!

had to show you this, loving the legs! this cinema even offers you tea and cake whilst you watch your flick, how fab!

And to the houses - advertising your house is open!

sculptures inside places

sculptures outside places

great ironworks, they had a forge going too

one fab house I had to take a few pics in, yes I did ask if it was okay!
Clair Letton's absolutely stunning paintings, they are amazing, such colour

Fiona Edwards mirrors, these are just beautiful

more gorgeous paintings

yummy colourful cakes!

textiles, teacup candles and pants, I mean what more could you want??!!

My sister loved a house called the pink birdhouse and the bird in it's front garden below, we even have a sticker for visiting!

You must take a look at Dupenny, fab designs, vintage, retro and cheeky!

and finally a few postcards/pics I picked up

Love my wee bird print card by Liz Toole, think I may frame him. Her prints are v lovely.

And so I have returned home, been chained to my sewing machine for a few days completing cushions for an order that thankfully reached its destination last week, phew! Onto the next thing on my list of to do's along with all the tidying up, etc, etc I need to do. Anyhow, SALE starting in my shop(s) from MONDAY NEXT WEEK, I will be back then with a post for you to see.......... Enjoy the sun this weekend, make sure you remember that SPF factor though! ;0 x

A few pics from some of the stalls at Belmont last weekend.
It was certainly an experience with the weather being horrendous! Saturday was a complete wash out and so cold from the rain, however Sunday was a vast improvement so all was not lost! It turned out a good weekend, making sales and meeting some lovely people to boot as well as a bit of networking about future events too, so all's well that ends well!

So to a few pics:

The lovely Clare Jackson was next to me

Gill from the fab Woolly Hearts was t'other side of me

Roz from Fentons of Kent, lovely smells!

Robyn of Digi Art Life

Lesley with her handcrafted fused glass

More gorgeous work in glass form Liz Townsend - liza(at)

I loved the chandelier!

And finally last but not least Jenni Rogers beautiful jewellery

Oh yes and a wee pic of my little stand, thought I'd better show it!

I did want to be able to show you pics of Belmont itself but as I said the weather wasn't exactly the best to be getting out around the grounds to take pics! Ah well, perhaps next time.......

Anyhow am off again today, down to my sister's for the weekend as guess what????? It's that time of year again for Brighton Artists Open Houses, so we will be wearing our shoe leather out once again nosing about the houses! Have packed my camera so will be back next week with pics for you, a SALE starting in my shops and a PIF (Pay It Forward) Giveaway happening, Phew!

Until then, hope you all have a fab weekend whatever you're up too :) x
