Things [ Hand Made ]


My chance to wonder about hand made things and tell the world about those I make, love and cherish!

charlotte macey

A few weeks ago there was an art car boot sale nearby and we were able to go. Its quite normal for me to find an exhibition/event and then we arrange to go with the day planned to do a picnic/family walk so that we still have the day together. It seems to work out well for us so that we have a family day but I still get to see the things I want to. So off we toddled to this sale with our picnic. It sounded like a good event with some of my favourite words in the title!

There were some interesting things there including some amazing photographers and glass. However the artist/illustrator Charlotte Macey was there. I vaguely recognised the name and the style so quickly grabbed a piece called "What if?" Its a phrase I try to live me life by and it has a nice whimsical and delicate look to it. It is a sketch with some watercolour detail and machine stitching. I like the simple floweres. I ususally go for strong colours but this one is much more understated. I haven't had chance to get it framed yet but its waiting on my mantelpiece.

I guess the "what if..." at the moment is what if I stop putting off all these little jobs and just get on with them?! no that would be too sensible!
