Vintage Photography captured by Ellen.
This piece is inspired by memories of my Grandmother who’s name was Rose and my daughter, who’s middle name is Rose. Sadly my Grandmother never got to see Jennifer Rose but I am sure she would have been very proud!
I loved using Jennifer’s little dresses and collecctions of vintage jewellry and buttons from Grandmother’s Button Box.
She grew honesty in her garden and my Mum does too. She was a fantastic quilter, needlewomen and dried, flowers. Her garden had many varities of Roses. Happy Memories.

These envelopes were designed with a lady from ‘Pide and Predjudice’ in mind.
They would keep all their notes, calling cards and secrets in them.
Vintage Lace Keepsake
Every Christmas I make The Coven Girls a keepsake.
They may all be the same item but they are all slightly different.
This year I made them all A Vintage Lace Keepsake,
filled with Norfolk Lavender from my garden.

This collection of sewing items is on my studio wall.
I am often being given antique sewing articles which I just love
and put them on this spool holder, making their own style of picture.
There are items from my childhood and Grandmother’s sewing box.
