Creations of a Curious Nature: Candle Nests and Perfume Oils, and all else my mind wanders to explore.

I've always had a curiosity for the little pieces, those gems, camouflaged in a forest too big for my eyes to take in. I tunnel vision to a miniature seed that's been bitten or broken precisely in half, the leaves dried to a delicate exquisite patterned lace, and so much amazing bark and flowers, and on and on. I walk out the door into the natural world, and for me, it's like walking into a candy shop.

I use what I find from nature to create candle nests - like a bird's nest, with a sturdy base and a space for a tea light - a little candle nest of warmth and glowy-ness.

And then there are smells! Smelling is like reliving a memory, or creating one that we can come back to. I try to capture those memory smells in the natural perfume oils I make. I think of them as comfort companions, soul elixirs.

Other items you'll find in my shop: whimsical doodle drawings, collages, hand designed fabric and paper, and all else that my ever curious mind is deemed to wander to and explore.

You'll also find my collection of vintage London Underground Railway posters. I'd love to find new homes for these beauties.

I hope you'll enjoy visiting my shop, and I especially thank you for stopping by.
Stay curious!
