The Alchemist’s Shack II at Mildred’s Lane…
Posted in artists, handmade May 16th, 2012 by pia

How exciting is this: My talented friend Natalie has been accepted to attend an art fellowship called The Alchemist’s Shack II at Mildred’s Lane in Pennsylvania… you read correctly, Mildred’s Lane! Remember I wrote a post about this magical place run by J Morgan Puett & partner Mark Dion back in 2009? (click here to refresh your memory)…

In order to get to the States and pay for the fellowship, Natalie needs support and has cleverly created a fund raiser on indigogo. Here she shares a gorgeous video to give you an idea of her style and creative talents, and you can purchase all sorts of fabulous, unique wares made by her like hand embellished antique plates, tin type prints, and even handwritten letters which she will post to you from Mildred’s Lane…

I’ve just purchased one of theĀ  hand embellished antique plates with an image of an Australian native flower. There are only 20 of these available.

Congratulations Natalie, I’m so excited for you and I can’t wait to hear all about your upcoming adventure!


Note: there are only 34 DAYS LEFT to show your support for Nat, so please click here for more info, thank you dear friends.

    Congratulations Natalie! I have swooned and sighed over so many pictures of Mildred’s Lane… I am sure that you will have an amazing, rewarding and highly inspirational experience during your fellowship. (I know I would be pinching myself for good measure if I was meeting J Morgan Puett) Good Luck Nat, safe travels and please make sure to keep us up to date with your visit, I can’t wait to see what magical adventures entail! Xx Stef

    Hey there! I’m about to start my own website and was wondering if you know where the best place to buy a website url is? I am not even sure if that’s what its
    known as? (I’m new to this) I’m referring
    to “”.
    How do I go about obtaining one of these for the website I’m creating? Thanks!
