I love to collect & rescue things; as they say, "one man's rubbish is another man's treasure" and I totally live by this mantra. There is so much waste in our society these days & many amazing objects are thrown aside for something newer, when with a little creativity they could become something new in themselves. I LOVE to upcycle!
I'm a frequent visitor to charity shops, car boot sales, reclamation yards & antique fairs; always on the lookout for something wonderful that needs a new lease of life - either in one of my designs or as a styling prop
As a stylist, it is always good to have access to interesting items for a shoot - I use this excuse a lot when questioned by my other half with, "do you REALLY need that??" I just wish our home was bigger to accommodate it all!
My blog postings document many of the treasures I find along life's journey & some of the ways in which I use them. You can read about what I've been up to & things that inspire or amuse me there
