Fresh Blooms at Castle in the Air

As springtime continues to unfurl around us, much is growing and changing within the walls of our store. 
Thanks once again to the artistry of Ulla Milbrath and John McRae, we now have a simple display of Tulip Magnolia blossoms inspired by Morgan Levine's Magnolia branches. Ulla and John adapted Morgan's pattern and used our gradated florist crepe paper to fashion these lovely blossoms. Other new additions are...
... a delightful troop of waxed paper mushrooms....
.... and a woodland bouquet of waxed paper and silk flowers accompanied by found natural materials.
Come by to see this most recent assortment of floral treasures!

Magical Mushrooms

Inspired by this video, John McRae crafted this mushroom from paper out of our recycling and paraffin wax. By twisting and folding until it took form and by painting on the details with a Copic Sketch pen John delights us once again by making something from nothing.

Some Fish!

Look what swam into the shop today.  A life-size crepe paper tuna made by Anandamayi Arnold for OPENHarvest.  At six feet long it is a rare sight and one not to miss!
