Field Trip to Crafty Wonderland

I went to Crafty Wonderland’s spring show over the weekend, and boy howdy, was there some cute stuff.

I was happy to meet the lady behind Chet and Dot, who I’ve admired from afar on Etsy for years now. She had one of the cutest booths ever:

Daleks. On pennyfarthings. On mugs. Yes!

Jack Pine Savage Clayworks is the genius behind these awesome things. You need this in your life.

If you’re looking for d.i.y embroidery Studio MME makes some AWESOME patterns. And kits. And very lovely pen and ink drawings. I had to get a copy of her Celebratory Jackalope embroidery pattern. Looking forward to stitching him up!

I regret not snagging a headband from Folding Chair Designs:

So many pretty designs!

The mini taxidermies (pardon me, tacks-o-dermies…as they are made from tacks, and puns) from 20 Leagues are a must buy, at least if you’re anything like me. (Miniature + taxidermy = best thing ever.)

I’m not much of a jewelry person, but I adored the refashioned vintage gems by Aunt Adeleine’s Vintage Jewelry.

These jackets by Bella Sisters are just how I want to look, every day. I get very put out about colder weather, but one of those babies might just take the edge off.

Speaking of taking the edge off, did I mention that there were several sellers offering samples of artisinal liquors? So yeah, if you’re in the area on a Crafty Wonderland weekend, it is well worth the trip.
