Mom and I are gearing up for Double Decker Fest 2013 in Oxford, Mississippi. Last year we went as spectators and were so inspired by all the amazing arts and crafts. We shopped all day long (not dawdling!) and still just barely saw all of the amazing things for sale. Here are some of the cool things we saw:
This is a collage made of different fabrics. Would make an amazing girls room/powder room addition
Birdhouse made out of driftwood cypress knees
A birdbath made of vintage glass.
Original painting on an old window. Love the colors in this
Great Textural Painting, would look great in a baby girl’s nursery
Bracelets made of old keys and coins. Love how they are curved to fit snug to your wrist. These would look great stacked with other bracelets
Earrings made of shotgun shell caps. Ha! I have seen it all now. Now that is some creative thinking. I can see a guy loving these on his wife/girlfriend:)
I so should have gotten these for stocking stuffers for all the deer hunters on my list. Seriously?! These are one of a kind. Only in the South!
Iridescent glaze pottery. The colors in this were out of this world! Way better in person
Ceramic birdhouse! This was stunning. If only I had a tree in my yard to hang it on…
Life Size Bottle Tree
Bottle Tree’s were everywhere last spring! I personally love them if done well. They can look tacky too. Above is a full size one at Double Decker.
Miniature Bottle Tree Its only about 6 inches high
They even had a bottle tree stained glass. It was beautiful!
Their were also some hardcore artists there. Check out these watercolors. I found these so inspiring. I love his use of color and the looseness.This is something to aspire to!
And this plantation home in silhouette. Wow
These above works by Gary Walters. Here is a shot of his book
A couple of more cool things we saw
Jared would have loved this South Carolina fish. What was I thinking to pass it over??
Love this wall art. So Americana
These are the things we bought
I had to get this print. It has the lyrics to a song that was played at our wedding ceremony, and the colors are perfect for our house.
Love this beautiful Silk cording with see pearl medallion bracelet. My favorite find
Mom got this bracelet, inspired by vintage silverware.
Mom also got this pearl wrap bracelet that you can also wear as a necklace.
I had to get this funny duck print. We are a little obsessed with ducks around our house so I loved this fancy duck and his bright colors:)
I got these adorable chicken earrings for my MIL. She loves chicken decor and dangly earrings. They are ceramic and pearls.
Next post I will show yall what Mom and I are making up to sell at our booth Double Decker 2013. Make plans to come see us in Oxford on April 27
