Field trip - Part 2

I love visiting artist's homes and spaces...
They are usually eclectic, tremendously appealing and creatively stimulating.

And this was no exception. From the front door - hand painted nameplate and various mailboxes...

-to the large, warm and welcoming kitchen (oh! so many intriguing, handcrafted details!

-including the tiled counter-tops mosaic-ed with local beach found glass and crockery (the glass jar of marbles were also found on the beaches).

There was the hand-crafted charming storage shed just outside -

-and so many collections of *interesting* objects clustered inside and out.

An entirely welcoming, fascinating and wonderful space!

Hi Tara,I agree, I could spend every day looking around artist's houses! I love your blog, I'm putting you on my 'list' if that's OK with you :)x

Yay sparklies! Reminiscent of the rainbow couch of yore.

Also, I love that shed. I want to live in a place that looks like the shed.

Oh, lovely lovely, that is my kind of house! (Andy would take the 's' out of cluster and replace it with a 't'...)
What a gorgeous fireplace and patchwork hanging over the rail. It is such a warm and inviting, informal home.

Places like this have "ME!" written all over them.

How fun. I love to see other people's spaces. I find it heartwarming when homes and places match the people. It feels cozy.

What a wonderful home!
On a cold day like today. Thats the sort of place I need to be :)
I love the 'tree' support in the kitchen, and the little house in the garden and the crystals.
