Featured designer in Bonhams magazine

I was contacted by Bonhams auction house a few months ago and asked if I was interested in being the featured designer!!  I thought it was some sort of hoax.....  but it wasn't and I was well and truly honored to be interviewed.  The day I arrived to have my photo taken, I was given a sneak peek into the bowels of Bonhams, it was like being on the set of Downton Abbey - guys with brown coats carrying antiques and period items, then behind a curtain was the photography department.  I loved every minute!!  A HUGE thank you to everyone involved, the staff were amazing and made me feel very special.

Here it is.....

North Wales visit

I'm currently in the UK visiting my parents and doing a little buying for my company...  the stores here are full of Union Jack paraphernalia...  well, we are in the thick of the Olympics and I'm loving the patriotic nature of my fellow Brits!!  

I've posted a few store finds on my Facebook page (same name as this blog) but I thought I'd share a few scenery shots as I am now in North Wales.
