Titania's Treasure

Well, summer has finally arrived in old Blighty, although who knows how long it will last?

I've had a busy few months, making stuff for a new shop, recently opened in my town.

Lollyrocket is a wonderful gift shop, set up by Hayleigh and Michelle and it's been incredibly successful.
Being the enterprising pair they are, they then opened up a shop on the top floor, called Finders Keepers. They rent out different size spaces to various sellers, including art, craft, antique and vintage ware. Again, it has taken off really well. 

This is my little space, below and I'm thrilled that I've sold so much in the first month, so thanks friendly customers!

The link above will take you to their Facebook page and you'll be able to see all the fabulous sellers there.
Next in their little empire, is the vintage tearoom.

I'm very proud to announce that I was asked to display my work again, at our local gallery, for July and August.
This is the Alfred East Gallery, opened in 1913 and I'm lucky that my display will be there for the centenary celebrations, this month. (Photo courtesy of Tony Smith.)

I wanted to do something a little prettier than I normally do, so I based my theme on Titania and A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Thankfully, I still found time to get out in the sunshine and go strawberry picking with my children. Hope you're all enjoying the summer.
