Handmade heaven part two

As promised, here are some more photos from the Handmade Expo at Ipswich on the weekend.
We were all mesmorised by the fantastic art - wearable and traditional - produced by Kirsten Bailey.
Kirsten admitted she was a teacher by trade, and didn't get enough time to produce her art. She was, like so many other stallholders at the expo, perfectly happy to chat about her work to the kids, even though - on this occasion - we couldn't afford to buy any. I was particularly taken with her jewellery and memento boxes - just gorgeous and reasonably priced.

Later, we stopped by a clothing shop for kiddies. (Stallholders, if this is you, please provide your details so I can credit you for your work.) Everything, from the clothes to the accessories were gorgeous, and the summer dresses were selling at $10. $10 for the prettiest dress our tomboy Missy Moo has worn in a very long time.
Happy with her purchase ....
So pretty she insisted on wearing it to bed!
Mr 9 was taken with the indigenous art ...
Miss 7 loved sampling some home-made goodies ....
Just like Grandma and Papa used to make. Oh okay, but without the chilli!
H. loved these almost-too-beautiful-to-eat cupcakes made by The Cup Cake Taste, possibly Brisbane's most beautiful little cakes.
Mmm...cupcakes ....
There is no end to The Cup Cake Taste's Sammy Gollshewski. She also makes pretty brooches, rings, cuff links, and hair ties. 
Finally, some more wearable art, by KL Bailey.
If you go (and I highly recommend you do): See previous post. Enjoy!
