Its Raining Goblins

Hello to all of you who haven’t given up on me and my lack of postings over the summer.  I was so busy working in the shop that I just didn’t have the time to write anything.  But now we’re coming to the end of the season and I wanted to post some pictures of my new little goblins and Fairy Mushrooms.  The Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design has a show every year at this time to celebrate the Celtic Colours International Festival which is a music festival held on the island and starts tonight (Oct.9-17).  I’m  pretty busy because I also play the fiddle and usually perform at some point in the festival (Thursday night in Baddeck!) Anyway, last yearfor the Craft Centre’s show I had a penguin colony with about 80 little penguins.  This year the show was called “Myth in the Mist” and the theme was fairies.  I tried to make fairies but nothing came out right so I switched to goblins.  Flying goblins wrapped in leaves.  Sorry about the fuzzy pictures, somehow I can’t even take pictures with my camera on the “pictures for dummies” mode.

Hope you enjoy them! If you want to go see the show it runs October 8-Nov 13 and the whole show is great.  I went to the opening last night and as always was impressed!  I want Gayle Bird‘s fairy jewellery.

  1. Oh my god, those are so cute. I can’t decide which I like best, the faeries inna jar or all those little mushrooms. They remind me of some little mushroom men that we’ve got – so cute… yet slightly terrifying.

  2. The goblins are fabulous. I have several of your lovely critters and am plotting how I can come visit again soon for a goblin fix. Well done!
