Despite a dismal start to Sunday morning we decided to revisit the Open Air Museum at Singleton, as they had a Blacksmith demonstration and blacksmith art exhibition on there.
We were really pleased that we went, as the artwork was absolutely brilliant, and very inspiring!
This wonderful fairytale bed with its accompanying doggie bed was my favourite of course.
And I think my OH thought this exhibit was a bit special too.
There were even quite affordable pieces like this beautiful heart, for £38.
The exhibition space itself is an amazing architectural structure.
The working blacksmith's demonstrations were very exciting too, with such a broad selection of people working, on very different projects.
The Museum is a wonderful place to find all sorts of artistic inspiration, such as these lovely sheaths of corn set out in the traditional way of stacking them.
And how about this for a bit of rusty paintwork.
Then there was the truckle bed, you don’t see these very often.
This wonderful print on a grain sack will definitely end up as a lino print.
And this poor old feller had just about had enough of being on show for one day I think, he looked pretty happy when we saw him grazing in the field just before we went home.
I was just thinking that I had finished with the camera for the day when I saw this great detail on a gypsy caravan that was being restored.
I managed to take 124 pics on this trip, so I think I’ll have enough inspirational goodies for a while.
