"Nothing Lasts. 
Nothing is finished.  
Nothing is perfect"



"Part of your Story..." 
...is a label for my designs and makes of 'fashion' accessories:
(scarves, purses, bags, jewellery etc).  

I am also co-owner of "Antique ideology", specialising in Industrial and Decorative Antiques.  Most of our Summer months are spent on the road at various fairs around the country (UK) and we have a store/show room here in beautiful Montgomery (on the Welsh/Shropshire borders) where i also have my creative studio:



 "Part of your Story..." studio
This room is approximately ... It is on the second floor of our 18th century home/business, a big(ish window) in the corner of the room which, unfortunately, doesn't let in a great amount of light.  However, i have six large strip lights on the ceiling creating great lighting.

One of it's features is the incredible 'wonky' flooring....which i love, but is not so good for levelling out furniture.  This building is old and amongst other things it was the 'sorting office' for the Post Office next door.  


Some of the walls are decorated with Vintage Japanese hand stitch quilts in the 'Boro' style.  I originally purchased these with the intention of taking them apart for the beautiful fabric, but they were so lovely i decided to keep them in their whole state.

These are my only two vintage Japanese Kokeshi Dolls, i found these in an antique centre in Shrewsbury about five years ago for £11 (for both), they are signed by the artist and are so lovely.  I also collect tins, small tins, the rustier the better.

  
This Studio is still a work in progress at present as the plan is for it to be a working studio/shop

These are some of the 'Part of your Story...' accessories that will be/are available for sale (i'm just working on packaging (more on this soon).  













"I want to live simply.  
I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books i'll never be tested on.
To stitch and paint because i want to and not because i have something to prove.
I'll listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly. No rush.
I want to not be governed by money or clocks...
...or any of the artificial constraints humanity imposes on itself.
I just want to be, boundless and infinite!    

~ Zen saying

Until next time...
