and fun was had by all!

This last week was fun and exciting. Great friends, Amelia from Arizona & Wendy from Louisiana flew in for a few days of fun! We found fun, beautiful & inspiring things along the way that are sure to please the artistically minded~

Along our travels we stopped into to see the lovely Marie Patterson. Luckily, Marie and I only live 15 minutes from each other!

We also stopped to meet Doreen Kassel of Uncommon Creatures and her hubster's photography studio! Very sweet that these two work together each day in their large studio space.

We headed to New Hope, Pa and...

~We found the giant nutcracker and it drew us in like a beacon~

These sugary sweet nutcrackers are reminiscent of the old Glitterville pieces. These are produced by Kurt Adler.

While in there I saw these cuties by Janell Berryman of Pumpkinseeds Folk Art! I always get so excited whenever I see Janell's work in stores. Maybe because, I know what goes behind getting pieces into reproduction and I always find it so fun to see a dear friends work in a store!

Amelia (Amy) of SweetB Folk Art has a serious candy addiction.
She was a total blur in Dylans Candy Bar! I finally caught this shot of her in what I think maybe a slap happy candy coma!?
