It's so nice to (virtually) meet you. Thanks for taking a peek inside my shop.
I confess, I love rust AND rhinestones. I also love fur and the smell of mothballs but that is another story….
I can spend hours in an antique store. I love anything and everything old, especially things that can be worn. When I’m looking at a limp, dingy, lifeless Edwardian tea skirt I can sense the excitement of the girl who wore it for the first time. So I buy it and wash it four times before it’s really clean. Then I spend the better part of 3 days ironing hundreds of knife pleats and as it returns to the breathtaking little confection it was when new I feel an amazing sense of wonder. As though I have traveled in time and can see her twirling around in it, smiling brightly…
