One of my favourite moments of the day is when the post man has been and you hear the metal 'clink' together for a split second.
I always rush to the post box to see what's there, as a avid subscriber to magazines, I was happy to see my new issue of Selvedge magazine had arrived this morning, ( http://www.selvedge.org.uk/ ) and when i gingerly peeled back the plastic mailer bag I found that I had been sent a gift.
A Saltwater make up case infact.
This issue was extremely uplifting and thought inspiring as it was packed with colour, [reminded me of an Innocent smoothie] texture and depth from within those well designed pages.
We are only on Issue 22 and I feel like it'd been her as long as Vogue.
One of the articles was on Julie Arkell's Paper doll- Home made House.
She is a delightful lady with a wicked sense for design. I spent most of the morning peering at the photo's of her home, and the thousands of little things that kept indivually jumping out at me.
I particially like the way they look like they are side-stepping up the stair case!
As a Haberdasher myself, i simply adore this photograph of Julie's sewing thread collection. All the silky threads, glossy in the light.
What i found extremely interesting is that, you can book a class for a day to go and study with her. It costs very little, concidering what you would gain from the experience. Something i have mentally added to my wish list of things to go and do 2009.
