Hope you all had a lovely Christmas. Just grabbing a few hours to write a quick napkin post before I settle down with my son to enjoy the Harry Potter film. Trying to capture the sublime pleasure of reading the books together, when he was younger.
Monday, 24th November
I was watching a programme on BBC 2 called ‘Posh People: Inside Tatler’.
The Editor of Tatler, Kate Reardon, said her favourite quote (from Debrett’s Guide To Etiquette, I think), is “A gentleman is never rude unintentionally”. It made me laugh.
I cut the letters from a Paddington advert. It was in Time Out.
If You Are New Here:
I like to make art from stuff nobody else wants. Stuff from the bin. Stuff with a secret history.
There is usually a bit of stitching involved. My mother was the most wonderful seamstress, as was my grandmother.
I absolutely never cut up books which could otherwise be read, or clothes which could otherwise be worn. Nor, do I erase the blemishes left by life. I cherish life’s blemishes.
Some of my work can be found in my shop.
Oh, and I have developed a penchant for making greetings cards from cereal boxes.
