The Pixies have been busy, and now that it’s getting towards the end of their first year out in the open, it’s time to take stock… though they’re more into adding stock than taking any:) but let’s look back at a year in events and creations…
Last May in the midst of a beautiful sunny spell, the Pixies stepped out onto the streets of Nancy, France to take part in Atelier ‘Courant d’Art”s exhibition of local talent…
two stoles later, they had scampered over to Parc de la Cure d’Air, (Nancy, France) for a bit of a party… This was a great setting to bring out seasonal creations like vegetable fibre necklaces: bamboo, banana fibre, and silk make for cooler accessories. They can be worn in summer and added to an evening outfit when there’s a slight breeze…
Hope - detail
In Septembre, at the Maison d’hôte de Myon (a beautiful place to stay in Nancy, France, with friendly owner Martine Quénot), the Pixies had an exhibit including new creations beanies Balade and Pensées that the Pixies had brought in their coffers. Perfect for the flower lover…
An intense carding and batt creating phase then started. On an ‘Indian Summer’ theme, batts ‘Shravana’ and ‘Indian summer’ ended up in Spain and the US… Bon voyage !
Closer to home, this year has also been the Pixies’ parisian debut, with batts now available in the 11th Arrondissement at Amélie’s workshop File à Paris…
In October, a stop in Brussels, Belgium was the perfect opportunity to bring out a series of surreal creations: ladybirds, butterfliess, cup-cakes… and Frankenstein all present!
And a few cosy snoods, with beads and Liberty fabric included, beautifully warm and soft for the winter…
Total Luxury - cowl
2012 has been a crazy, creative, Pixie year: new designs, new materials, exhibitions, sales, a Paris debut… some days they wake up disheveled and crumpled.
But what more can a Pixie ask than to be doing what she loves? … and so off she goes again!
In December, do come and visit us at our stand at P’tit Baz’Art in Nancy, France – yes, right at the back on the far right… over there! This time the Pixies are smuggling in the perfect xmas gift: spindle kits with coloured wool… Come and try them!
