Isn't she the cutest??
These are bracelets made from license plates. I couldn't resist and bought two---a bicentennial Delaware plate and a Michigan plate. I would have gotten Texas and Florida, but they were not as visually attractive as the two I got. The artist were SO nice! They make all sorts of treasures at great prices, take a look at their website, http://www.the3sisters.com/
Ari st Amy Lansburg, made her way here from Michigan. She makes beautiful pieces with drift wood from Lake Superior and really uses her wit and imagination. A delightful and stylish woman ( she was wearing a pair of license plate bracelets...that's where I first noticed them)... my mom fell in love with these church fans. Here's her website for more information http://www.amylansburg.com/
A fellow leaguer, Holli Kingsbury along with Macy de la Guardia make these gorgeous pillows and throws. This octopus was my favorite yesterday at the show. Holli's creations give your couch, bed, chair, office...whatever, a certain je ne sais quoi! To look at all the Thred creations visit, http://www.thredpillows.com/
This outlaw of a squirrel caught my eye right away...and he sold while I was talking to the artist...who unfortunately did not have cards on him.
I couldn't get to this artist to talk t o him...but fell in love with this piece called, "Hell on Wheels".
All in all it was great! Kudos to all the women on the Beaux Arts Committee for their hard work putting together another wonderful festival!
If you are in Miami in January, make sure to go to the Beaux Arts Festival.
