Last Night............

Well I had a really lovely night at the launch of the 'pop up' shop for Selvedge inside Anthroplogie.
It was so nice to meet people who have bought my pieces,really fab.
I just wanted to say it meant a great deal to me for so many to turn up.
Thank you.

Just the right sized box.....

I get asked a lot if I collect insects and ....well I do. Not the kind that are beautifully displayed behind glass tho.
Whilst they are very beautiful to look at I like to know that the insect has died naturally so I collect the dead insects that I find.....
I keep them in tiny vintage cardboard jewellery cases.....which for me is perfect for them and slightly more poetic.Whilst moths are great to find the 'bestest' find are large fat bumblebees...
