A Taste of What’s to Come……….

The past few weeks have been ever so slightly busy and I am so sorry for the lack of posts.

I guess I just didn’t realise when we started Heart Home magazine exactly how much work it was going to be and exactly how many hours it would take.  But boy…

Dreaming of a White Christmas……….

How nice would it be to forget family traditions just for once and have a totally white Christmas?

There’s nothing I like better than a little snoop around a locations website.
I like to look at the bones of a house especially when its stripped bare in all of it’s glory.  The unadorned walls and vast expanses of floor space invite the imagination to run a little riot, don’t you…

Not surprisingly she lives and works in a gloriously evocative environment in Rural Gloucestershire where she and her architect husband…

I Spy – Jennifer Collier……….

Mesmerizing!
I can’t get over the attention to detail, the perfect stitching, the chunky satisfying heaviness of them……and they are paper!

“My practice focuses on creating work from paper; by bonding, waxing, trapping and stitching I produce unusual paper ‘fabrics’, which are used to explore the ‘remaking’ of household objects.
