Wilton Wonderland












I look forward to the Wilton show every year...of course there is always something fabulous about the show and it presents the rare chance for me to shop for my own collection. This year getting there almost topped the charts! We had two inches of snow and the drive over the mountains was not without drama, but all was worth it...













This is the face that greeted me in Stacey Bear's booth...










Here I am with Stacey next to -- what I think -- was the best piece in the show. I am thrilled to be the lucky one who got to take this painting home. It will hang in the living room...
yes, I will post images of it in it's new "spot"!
Here are some other fun shots from the day browsing the fabulous folk art creations and visiting with some of my favorite artists...






Ro and her first creation from talented Lori Ann Corelis...






Gal pals Dawn, her daughter Heidi Steiner and Lori Ann Corelis...











Stacey with Sarah Newell of Country Living and Devon her dedicated and dashing beau...










Here is Diane Allison and a bevy of her boards...Diane visited me the day before the show...She is uber talented and mega fun!










I love Lori and her soulful creations...









Pat Castka charmed the crowds with her new boxed fairy series!









Kim Stout and a collector pause in the most tantalizing booth in the show! Bravo Kim for your incredible display...I wanted it all!









Debbie's booth of "Hartwells" creations was jammed all day!
And so...
I snagged two amazing treasures for my personal collection...the amazing painting by Stacey and, a wonderful creamy bunny boy from Lori Ann that will make a perfect boyfriend to the girl she made for me that sits in my front hall. Yes, images to follow!

Debbie, Kim, Pat, Stacey and Diane also had some work set aside for me to present to Earth Angels customers. We will be photographing and posting their latest work in the next week or so...Thanks gals!
Once again Wilton was a wonderland. I am consistently amazed by the talent collected under one roof. Add this show to your calendar!
