About Still Life
I have called my little shop Still Life. This seemed the perfect name considering my love for all things depicting the art form called Still Life.
A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which are either natural (food, flowers, dead animals, plants, rocks, shells, etc.) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, etc.).
In keeping with still life, I also tenderly live a still life and while there is still life to live it mindfully, consciously and enjoy each day as it arrives.
I’m a real toasted cheese girl with a penchant for magpie glamour.
Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, There is a crack, a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in
What I do
Mini still life landscapes, captured in hand-blown glass pods filled with wild grasses, dandelions, fountain grass and many more fillings - all sourced locally.
They are whimsical light catchers to decorate your chandelier, your patio or any space where you need a little bit of magic.
They are a perfect gift for someone who has everything.
The silence of nature is very real.
It surrounds you... you can feel it.
Have you heard the term gently worn and previously loved?
It is more environmentally friendly and far gentler to upcycle and repurpose garments while there is still life in them. It's an opportunity to bring joy and fun to your cupboard while not spending a fortune.
I collect items that are hand picked and bring in a quirky aspect of styling while still embracing the feminine side of each person.
Authenticity is the daily practice of letting go of who we think we're supposed to be and embracing who we are.
TRINKETS & ORNAMENTS
Well call me Tinker Bell if you must - while out on my rounds collecting bits and pieces I often come across a certain theme. I may start with finding the perfect teapot and that will see me collecting teapots for the week, I will then move on to milk jugs, scarabs, ceramic swans and tea cosies.
I re-imagine secondhand finds into unusual showpieces which I then gift wrap for you.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration...
