This page is all about me! Well, a little bit ...

What's to say? 

I need a strong cup of coffee to get me going in the mornings, I love chocolate and cup cakes, sunny days, raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens, lol

I'm happily married, the wrong side of 65 and live in London. My hair is grey, my eyes are hazel - everything else is subject to change without notice.

I journal, I make mixed media pieces, digital art, books - and I love the shabby and the chic. I'm always looking in charity shops, bric a brac shops etc, and often buy bits and pieces to incorporate them into my artwork. Over the years, I've collected lots of odds and ends in my travels (I'm a bit of a hoarder).

I've amassed a pretty large collection of ephemera: photographs, old magazines, cabinet cards and postcards, game pieces, ledger pages, maps, playing cards ... and scanned these and and have loaded them onto this blog for you all to have fun with.

Virtually everything you see here (with a few noted exceptions, where the source is always quoted) is from my private collection.
