making space

I’m getting organized and making space, mental and physical. A great letting go has begun. One of the results of this effort will be my  first ever online studio sale  – a sort of a virtual stoop sale.  I’m digging through deep and not so deep  storage  every night and unearthing experiments, treasures, supplies, samples and props.  I think the sale is about 2 weeks away and I’ll keep you posted on the where and the when here or you can join my mailing list here.  Today I’ll share a little of what I’ve come up with so far.


Some ruined but wonderful, frothy antique gowns. There will be lots of antique lace too.

ring pillows

I have a little collection of ring pillows made from antique gowns and petticoats available at BHLDN now  (ps – their spring collection is lovely) –  some of the samples  and  experiments I made along the way will be part of my studio sale.


Horses! My cardboard horses- some of the original signed and numbered group of 100.

paper mache fork and spoons

I love these – they were part of a holiday window I made ages ago.

caged bird

And a caged bird on a little nest of lace. It’s one of the very first birds I made.

    How much are you asking for the bird? I loved it the first time I saw it.

  • Can’t wait to see what else you dig up because these few are lovely. I’ve got my eyes on some of those horses.

    How are you ever going to give up your fabric? When I was a young girl learning to sew my aunt took me into her sewing room to find me some fabric. The room was stock to the ceiling, a bit like mine now. She pulled out piece after piece always saying “oh I am going to make this or that out of this..”. I thought, come on give me something. I thin I left with some scraps of white and violet polyester. I have always thought she was being greedy but over the years I to have a deep connection to my fabric. Good luck trying to do a clear out.
