Beauty in the eye of the beholder




The Atelier is brimming with finds from across the globe from Spain to Edinburgh, from Sicily to Upstate New York,  I can't seem to work enough I could spend each waking moment lost blissfully in creating. It's not always this frutiful in my travels however this time it has been. So, between trofie and polipetti, panelle and ricotta sandwiches, before the little tribe I've created comes rushing in I'm lost in my own epic drama. It is a drama spanning the flappers of the 1920's in America, ladies of the 1940's that Tangoed in Spain and the dapper businessmen walking Princes St. in Edinburgh of the 1940's.
