Once upon a time there was a girl who just loved to paint……
This is what it says on the card of artist Marnie Maurri, who I discovered through facebook a couple of weeks ago. She went to the Slade school of fine art and now paints away all day doing private commissions, murals etc. I have put her in touch with a friend of mine who needs some illustrations for a childrens book which she has written and I am now the proud owner of one of her pictures. She has a unique, retro style. Check out her work at www.marniemakes.com
It’s been a busy old week on the candle front. The evening at The Coffee Rush went well and I met some new customers, also returning customers brought back their jelly moulds to be refilled. I have just arranged a new Vintage Fair in South Molton on April 14/15th from 10am-4pm at The Assembly Rooms. For information on this fair, and others visit www.countryhousevintage.com
Anyway, best get cracking with my coconut candles which I have on the go today! I need to make sure all my crates are full to bursting in preparation for “All things Vintage & Lovely” on March 31st and The Craft Hub’s “Birdsong & Blossom” fair on April 1st which are fast approaching….
Don’t forget you can purchase candles through my Etsy shop if you can’t make it to any of the fairs I’m doing in the SouthWest this year (PeagreenFurnitureCo) and you can follow me on facebook too….
