A GRAND DAY OUT

The lovely Mr Brown could see that I was getting a little frayed around the edges and needed a day out of the shed, so off we went on an adventure. Our first port of call was The Foal Yard in Bransford, Worcester to see my chum Sharon McSwiney. Sharon was not in but we had a fab time chatting to her Mum and her other half Tim and came away with a few purchases and a lovely lunch.
A treat from Mr Brown, these lovely silver earrings, made by Sharon. The Foal Yard is a great place to see designer jewellery, unusual kitchen ware, good food and more. Check out Sharon's web sight for directions http://www.sharonmcswiney.co.uk/.




Next stop was just outside of Worcester heading north, the Bevere Gallery, we have traveled past the AA signs to this gallery on the way to Kidiminster for years and at last we have had the time to pop in. What a gem for those of us interested in ceramics and artists prints.




At the moment there is a wonderful sculpture trail through the gardens. An amazing gallery full of big name ceramicists and printmakers plus a cafe with great cake. For those who know me well great cake is a vital ingredient!








These photos give just a taste of the variety of work available in the gardens. Mr Brown was tempted into a purchase, 2 beautiful ceramic pieces by Lara Scobie. I feel like I have had a bit of a holiday, so tomorrow I can tackle the Eider duck plates waiting for me in the shed.

Sounds just what you needed. All that wonderful creativity and a bit of retail therapy too. Looking forward to my 'play day'. x
