Elf & Garden Show

Mickey the Elf is now complete....I'm so pleased that I can tick another UFO of the list.
I just love the colours of this one, he is the 3rd one that I have made.
Melbourne Flower Show
On Saturday hubby, mum and myself trotted off to the Flower & Garden show in Melbourne.
I thought that the ticket price was a bit hefty at $27 a head. If you had seen how many thousands of people that were there I can assure you that they were certainly raking it in.
I must admit that it was a very enjoyable day out though and the weather was absolutely perfect.
Although I do like flowers and gardens, I always find that I'm more attracted to sculptures and your arty farty stuff.
Blooming marvellous.
Now these 3 look like they are made out of metal but no...they are actually made from clay.
It also took out first place.
This is called the chook chaser..designed and made by Alastair Mason
I had quite a chat to Alastair, I just love listening to an artist especially when they speak with so much passion.
This Rooster was made with knives and forks.
I just love the look of this...very clever.
 Beware the woolly jumper.
This was designed and created by Pimpisa Tinpalit.
Made from fibre glass it is named
"Strangers"
