Tis’ the time of year where talented artists fill four blocks of 12 Mile in downtown Berkley for the 13th Annual Berkley Art Bash. Since our first catching fireflies shop is located in the middle of it all and it is a Chamber of Commerce sponsored event, I’ve had the pleasure of directing this show for the past ten years. It’s hard to resist all the amazing goodies that will be for sale this Saturday so I’ve been doing a little pre-shopping.
I have recently treated myself to a nice slr camera and a couple of lenses and it just happens to be the lovely Lily Ryan makes special bags to tote those around… so I do believe I need one of these pretties.
I don’t plan on going on safari any time soon, but you don’t need to go to Africa to grab one of these uber adorable crocheted elephant heads from Jane Rennalls. I already own this one and am looking to add a bunny or bear to my collection soon!
I’ve been on a bit of a plant kick lately and although I like pretty pots… I think one of these terrariums by Lead Head Glass would look quite magnificent in my abode.
And speaking of pots… I cannot get enough of Marna McGlinn’s work!
Gus’ dog collar has seen better days so we need to pick out a fun print from Ruthie Kiefer for summer.
I love the look and feel of Marcy Davy’s canvas prints. I can envision this one in my imaginary cottage up north.
With our third international daughter heading home this June, I need to sneak of few of these buttons by Jill Hamilton in her bag before she heads back to Finland.
Fabric, felt and pure cuteness… cannot resist these little pops of sunshine for my walls by Jennifer Allevato.
Come summer my everyday wardrobe consists of cute comfy skirts so I will definitely have to peruse through Julie Crouse’s selection. Each one is unique because they are made from a variety of second hand t-shirts.
So that’s my top ten for this year. I invite you to peruse through our 120 artists to make yours or better yet, come on out and see all these fantastic goods in person this Saturday from 10-6. And did I mention catching fireflies’ annual GIANT SIDEWALK SALE will also be going on all day? There are tons of great deals to be had at delirious discounts! Visit BerkleyArtBash.com for more info.
