Powder & Eggs


My treasure?
Sometimes the things that have the least value are the most valued... 
My most treasured posessions - bird eggs, pots of powder, shells, broken frames, chipped jars and faded tatty textiles x


The pots of powder have appeared on many a printed page. 
Appearing here in BBC Homes Antiques


As have my treasured collection of blown eggs.

1920's Wedding Photo Shoot


In collaboration with Photographer Joanne Withers of Nine photos.
Way back in March I provided props and styled this wedding shoot with a 1920's theme in mind.

The initial brief was black and white however the beautiful colours of the silk & satin props were too much to resist..

For me the pale pinky peach skin tones of our lovely model and the wash of sea foam green is an heavenly combination, the resulting images are lovely and have a real nostalgic feel about them.

Let me know what you think? 



If you want to read a bit more about the day and see some more of the photographs, Joanne has posted more photographs on her Blog.

A Spring Arrangement

I have begun to write for a small local magazine - so I suppose you could say I have a column!!!

The idea is I give styling ideas through the year... Ideas that are easily achievable.

My first contribution was somewhat of a sharp learning curve, I had ideas of Easter, Mother's Day Spring, flowers, eggs, blossom, birds, but what would  I write... after my first draft Debbie the Editor said it may help if I worked with an image - This was great advise, and gave me the direction I needed. I gathered props and created some vignettes.

I wanted there to be a softness to the images and the for the lovely colour to pop. Joanne Withers of Nine Photo's captured this beautifully and the images we created gave me the inspiration as what to write.
