Artist Open House - NOW OPEN!!

Roll up, roll up!! The Artist Open House Event in the village of Firle is now officially OPEN!! And how fantastic does the village look! I am thrilled to have some of my work on display at Vanessa Mooncie's home "Little Talland", I am proud to be among several other talented artists displaying their wares. Above is a view of the outside of "Little Talland", and below Vanessa herself among beautiful handcrafted items on display in her lovely kitchen.
Vanessa is an amazing artist creating stunning screen prints with images of vintage circus displays as well as beautiful crochet jewellery (see some of her artwork and jewellery designs below). Check out the gorgeous vintage lingerie and swimwear for sale by La La Rookh; Using vintage fabrics and trim on reproduction prints these designs are created inspired by vintage, limited edition pieces.
See further info at:
Now the piece of artwork below is absolutely stunning. Created by Jazmine Miles-Long, an Ethical Taxidermist, Jazmine captures the beauty of these animals in stunning styles (please be aware that all animals used have died from natural causes). I know this style of art may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I find Jazmines work beautiful and a wonderful way to preserve these animals.
For more information on Jazmines work please visit:
Here are some examples of Vanessa's gorgeous art, in the form of silk screen prints and greetings cards (below). For more information on Vanessa's art please visit
And below is a piece of Vanessa's crochet Jewellery which is totally unique and quite adorable, for further details on her jewellery please go to
I had pieces of my work dotted about Vanessa's home, my Lavender Cushions (below), some of my Bottled Mermaid Collages, and a selection of my Greetings Cards and Bookmarks as well as a couple of Vintage Pin Cushion Teacups. It was lovely to see my work displayed among the other artists pieces.
Vanessa turned her front room (below) and kitchen, into a treasure trove of goodies to rummage through and her hallway into a gallery of art to admire.
There were cute items at every turn, like these wonderful cushions pictured below, they really made me smile.
In each room there was something to ohhh and ahhh over, I could have stayed there all day, chatting with Vanessa, her wonderful family and visitors to her beautiful home, it had such a lovely atmosphere, very creative and inspirational.
The village of Firle is a pretty place to visit, packed with gorgeous cottage style homes, with roses in abundance, it's a must if you are visiting the area, it also has a great local Pub at the start of the village.
So why not drop by tomorrow, the Event is on again Bank Holiday Monday, it will be your last chance this Spring to visit the Event, details can be found in my side bar! You won't be disappointed.
