My NEOS Tour - Day 3

Another gloriously sunny day for my NEOS Tour! Wanna see Day 1 and Day 2?

First stop today was Mill Farm at Kemnay to see Gabi Reith, Morag McGee, Aubin Stewart, Ane Smith and Magnhild Hauge.


That's Aubin working away! I saw Gabi, Aubin and Morag last year too and they're really friendly and happy to chat, which is great!

I bought these lovely earrings from Magnhild and this wooden Christmas decoration from Gabi:


Next up was Kemnay House, which was really beautiful and peaceful. I love these arches of greenery, makes me feel like Alice In Wonderland!
 

There were a number of artists here, but I particularly liked Min Fletcher-Jones' jewellery, Alice Harman's botanical watercolours and Alex Burnett. I bought this card of "Out Into The Open" by Alex (apologies for the blurry photo!):


I was running a bit late by the time I got to the Gordon Highlanders Museum so I had to whizz round but the collection was mostly jewellery and silverware with some lovely kilt belt buckles and teapots. I didn't go in to see the museum but from what I saw it looks fantastic. My Mum has wanted to go for a long time as she's researching our family tree so we'll need to have a nice day out there!


Junction Arts was a favourite of mine last year so I had to go back this time. 


The owner Elaine is so nice and her stock is very much to my taste so I always find something new and different here. I bought this handmade bowl from Little Blue Twigs and I couldn't resist this cute brooch too.


 Oil & Glass was my final stop for the day.  This was another place that I hadn't managed to squeeze in last year so I made a point of being there this time.


I'm pretty clueless on this, but Hannah Beresford and Aileen Sawkins did a great job of explaining the processes involved in their work, although I'm still a bit intrigued so I may pop along to a class. There was a mix of glass pieces, paintings and jewellery in the gallery.

So that was another day on the NEOS trail! It's the last day tomorrow :( but I've still lots to see!
