Adventures in Wonderland

This week I begin one of my most exciting projects… I’m shooting a craft book where the products are all based on Wonderland! I almost burst with excitement when I was contacted to shoot this book as I’ve been a huge lover of all things Alice since I was a little girl.

So I’ve been rummaging around my house gathering props for the project, some of them I’ve had since I was small… I love putting in personal items that mean so much to me into my work!! Cannot wait to start shoot this book!

Vintage Retro Camera Display

I’m a collector, I collect all sorts of things, so naturally one of the thing I collect is vintage and retro cameras. They have been gathering on my shelves and been becoming increasingly more cramped. So finally I decided to make them their own display space. I’ve had this large empty frame for tens years just gathering dust with no purpose, so I hung that on the wall, painting the inside space black, then hung two box shelves inside and a couple of hooks and boom, awesome display space… I love it!

Non Food Friday

I went a little crazy whilst late night shopping last night and came home with three cardigans, two dresses and a pair of PJs. So far this year I’m averaging two new dresses a month, which reminds me of my new years resolution two years ago which was to buy a dress every month, only now it’s two per month… oops.

Here’s one of them, accessories with my pearl collar, bronze belt and one of my new cardigans 😀
