Craft Show Re-cap - Glamour in the Glebe

A brand new event for us, Glamour in the Glebe, used to exclusively showcase handmade jewellery, but was opened up this year for other accessory designers. We were thrilled to be a part of the show which included an Opening Night Gala where volunteers modelled one or two pieces by each designer. I discovered some amazing new artists here that I have never seen before.

The Lady Smith's table was right next to mine, and from the moment she started displaying her pieces I was in love. Each element of her jewellery is lovingly handmade. For certain special pieces she hand etches designs onto metal, making it one of a kind. There was an etched cloud with a stone raindrop pendant, that I didn't get a chance to photograph before it was sold. I was a bit obsessed with that piece, and it's definitely on my "must have" list.

Craft Show Re-cap - Handmade Harvest

So it's been a productive and busy season so far, filled with craft shows and fun. I meet so many amazing artisans at these shows that I thought I should feature some of my favourites from each show.

The first show of the season was Handmade Harvest, which is held in Almonte. This is the third one we have participated in, and it is always an amazing show. I always wish I had known about it sooner, so I could have been one of the lucky attendees who gets the amazing swag bag handed out to the first 50 visitors.

Mouse & Owl creates beautiful hand printed linens and accessories. Her prints are nature inspired, simple, and she prints using only natural dyes. I love simple and minimal and that's why  my eyes are always drawn to her prints. I was so excited to see her items in person at the show and was surprised to find out that she also makes beautiful mobiles made from recycled materials. I'm obsessed with elephants, so I was very tempted to buy the cutest elephant mobile I have ever seen.

More puppies

I can't resist sharing another post of puppy pictures, because they are just too adorable.
The farm was a beautiful setting with a large field of blooming buckwheat, and the puppies were having a great time exploring. Eventually they all got tuckered out and fell asleep under an old pickup truck.
