Terracotta Seas


I'm working my way through a backlog of photographs at the moment because life has been so hectic.

This morning, I had a chance to breathe as my server was being set up for me in preparation for a soft launch of TrendListr (meaning it won't be widely publicised).

I revisited some photographs from France last summer and edited the last of my the interiors and prop styling exercise my mum and I were doing to keep ourselves entertained.

This time, we explored a deeper, richer colour palette but with just as much vibrancy and variety in terms of form and texture. 

This tapestry was my bargain du jour. It cost me just 50 cents (about 40p) and is an original tapestry from the 1920s-30s.

Of course, it is a totally useless object and I have no idea what I will do with it, but it was special and I am glad I bought it.

I was quite enjoying the accidental nautical theme running through the books, tea towel and tapestry. 

This tiny little suitcase reminds me of the new fashionable keyrings I am increasingly seeing hanging from the handbags of England. 

The urns infer cargo imported from exotic lands.

The background tea towel is from the 1980s and is unused. I think it's almost worthy of being framed, I certainly wouldn't want to sully it by using it for the dishes! 

I have sold a few of these similar tea towels with various motifs on ebay for between £10-15, which is not bad considering they cost me 30 cents apiece.

This gorgeous Michel LeBrun enamel pendant looked right at home displayed on this vintage book cover.
