Mary Martens' Profile
I've always been a COLLECTOR of various things, even as a child collecting the unusual.
I FELL IN LOVE WITH ANTIQUES very young, pottery, housewares, linens, clothes... all are decorative objects to me.
They all have mysterious pasts.
Had a part in someone's life at a different time, when life was so different from now.
That is why I like reading biographies and related cultural anthropology.
Vintage Dresses, Lingerie, men's suspenders and ties...exciting to me!
But---Silk SCARVES are a work of art and making silk is as old as the Asian civilizations.
Embellished textiles of many sorts are what men and women alike created in a simpler time to ENRICH their lives.
And we still do for the same reasons.
