Let it Snow

It's a-snowing here in Brighton along the Prom. Mr Mustard loves it! The Dear Lady Wife has decided that nothing but the Thursday night Bingo is getting her out there in it, and Doris dog is reserving her judgment until she sees how many extra biscuits those big, hard luck, shivery, doggy eyes get her.

But rather than go on about our beautiful weather, I will just remind you of our two Open Studio days coming up soon on 11th and 12th December. I know it's a funny climate, financial- and snow-wise, and I really don't know how many of you to expect, but we will be opening our doors 12-6pm each day at Brown Dog Studio, 12 Chapel Mews, Hove BN3 1AR nonetheless.

We will put the heating on, get the fairy lights twinkling, hand round the mince pies and get some mulled wine on the go. There'll be the usual Lucky Dip, Hot Popcorn machine and Candy Grabber to keep the littluns busy if it's a Family Outing, and I may even get the sherry out for Grandma.

There will be lots new to see:

  • I have a small stock of 2011 calendars (3 varieties!) otherwise available through Lulu.com
  • Lovely tiny wee sketches in mounts, and larger sketches in frames from £65-£250
  • Nine brand new original pieces, including a set of small, square, sepia toned sweeties, inspired by old photographs, and beautifully framed (priced from £750-£1950 before the VAT increase!)
  • A small stock of Stories from along the Prom (otherwise available from blurb.com) which is a delightful little book that dare I say it, would make a perfect gift
  • Christmas cards ... 19 designs but limited stock!
  • Limited edition prints, silk screen prints, Artist Proofs, signed posters
  • A bargain box of older work and end of lines
  • Mugs, bags, badges, Mrs. Mustard's handknits and jewellery
  • All these lovely items available to studio visitors only, and to make you feel extra special we will give you a 10% discount if you say "Doris sent me" when you pay. Marvellous.
I also see that Nan Mustard has had some new Christmas cards done, so look online at the Mustardshop to check those out!


And finally (hoping I have the time to finish them ) I will have 2 puppets for you to see when you visit... Mr and Mrs Guess Who...

Hoping to see some of you very soon. And don't forget, "Doris sent you"!
