About me

Location Berkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I am lucky enough to work from home indulging my passion for vintage & antique textiles, haberdashery & other paraphernalia that I just can't live without. I am partial to chippy paintwork, faded photographs & reading cards & letters that have long ago lost their owners. I realise that I will never make my fortune doing what I love, but the pleasure I get from hand~making something completely unique is reward enough. Working with treasures in the form of textiles, buttons, beads & trims is a privilege and I strive every day to learn more about their past.
Interests sewing, collecting vintage & antique textiles, reading interior design books, playing 'shops'with my 4 year old daughter
Favorite Movies Breakfast At Tiffanys, My Fair Lady, Marie Antoinette, Atonement, Oliver, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Hobsons Choice, La Vie En Rose, Gigi, Some Like It Hot, It's A Wonderful Life, Harvey, Chocolat, Mamma Mia
