I went to the opening of Julia Devilles exhibition tonight,
it was incredible.
I am a fan of taxidermy anyway, but what she has created is spectacular.
If only I could afford the kitten, or the Swan Lake, three mice who spin around in tutu's....
or the circus box with the mouse on the trapeze in a leopard print leotard.......
I bumped into Alice who worked with me years ago sewing, she had sewn all the costumes for the mice, you can see her reflection here on left of pic.
the exhibition is on from 28th July-21st August 2010 at Sophie Gannon Gallery

I have just discovered this blog, Heidi Kenney is a very talented and intriguing woman.
Anyone with BAKE & CAKE tattooed on their knuckles will get my attention immediately,
she makes incredible craft, the stump & mushroom in a bell jar are my favourite,
and I would definitely get my boys a hotdog each!
she bakes incessantly, and her cake creations are fantastic,
if I ever go to Chicago I will hunt her down for tea and cake.....

I have always wanted to be in Holland for Spring, to see all those bulbs flowering,
this photo just re-inforces how magnificent it would be....
this is sixty million tulips budding in early May and simply is nature at its finest.
A patchwork quilt design waiting to happen!
