This, not so sunny, morning was spent visiting a couple of places in West Hove, and I would highly recommend a visit to both.
The first is Cherry Picked For You. A beautiful house featuring a nice seletion of artists and designers. There was a lot at this house I liked, so I have picked a few of my favourites to show you.
Caroline Green makes these stunning porcelain bowls, like this one above which is decorated with wire and bead trim around part of the rim. I really want one of these and a small bowl costs around £10 which I think is a bargain.
This beautiful heart card is by textile artist Wendy Dolan. Its a very simple, understated design, but its gorgeous and pink and lovely.
All of the above artists work can be seen and purchased at http://www.cherrypickedforyou.co.uk/ Please go and have a look as its full of wonderful things.
The second house we visited, Aymer Arts, was equally lovely, but at this one I actually made a purchase, albeit a £3 one. Jules Miller makes very sweet greeting cards, featuring her own printed illustrations which are hand finished with jewel and glitter embellishments. You can see a range of her cards at http://www.julesmillercards.com/
Here is a small selection of some, but im not showing my purchase in case the recipient happens to read this!
The Open Houses are on until 29th May, so thats my next few weekends filled up then! But of course I will keep you posted on all the yummy, pretty things I find.
Hope your all having a good weekend!
