at yesterday's love and rummage trunk show, i picked up a bit of love (handmade wares) and a bit of rummage. those balls of wool from shannon? one dollar! (and yes, i got a bit more than that). i got my first piece of of krystal speck ware (how can this be the first?), a beautiful painting by trunk show newbie, cecelia hayes, and a plaster ear from tara bursey.
a) cecelia mentioned (in person and on her blog) that she experiences some sort of separation angst with her paintings. i understand the feeling and hope that i can prove mine to be a good home for it. in due time, i will show you all where it ends up.
b) people at city of craft events seems inordinately weirded-out by tara's work. i don't get this. what is so disturbing to you guys? can we all just get over it, please? her work amazes me and i want city of craft to be a place where it is welcome and admired. c'mon, citizens. stop being weird.
