Oh What a Night - Part One


Opening Night finally arrived!


It was so exciting to look inside the window and see beautiful things from some of my fave crafty peeps and then wander inside and see some of my very own handcrafted goodies for sale....


.... like one of my Owlie Pouches just hanging around waiting to go to a new home.


But then, it was soooo much more exciting to walk upstairs and see some of my sculptural works displayed in a gallery space for the very first time.


Along with these beautiful original artworks by Tinniegirl.


The thing that I love about group shows is that the artworks are so diverse. There really is something for everyone.


I fell in love with these pieces by Christine Hickson. Do you see the one on the bottom left? It's called 'Dorothy Grows Up' and it's coming home to live at my place at the end of the exhibition.

It suits me to a tee, and how could I not buy it, when it reminds me so much of my favourite shoes (which I just so happened to be wearing lastnight)




A big thankyou must go out to Steph and Marcia for being such wonderful hosts.

If you're out and about around the Ballarat area, you really must pop in for a visit.

Unreal banana peel...love those flowers! Tinniegirls artworks are georgeous too. I would have picked the same picture...good choice. The way each installation was displayed was excellent as far as I can tell.
