I decided to try and do an outdoor photoshoot for the Knickerbunting. Some of the rocks on the Tour de Yorkshire Route called to me.
But… the hills were too steep and shadows got in the way
And the wind got in the way
Time for plan B – a studio shoot!
Knickerbunting at Alternatiba Todmorden
Knickerbunting at Summer Re-Considered and Christmas Re-Considered events in Shipley – organised by the amazing Re-Considered
Living moss encased in an upcycled jar creates a loving ornament and a reminder of one of our all-time favorite books. Can you make out the lightning-bolt shaped scar?
Who doesn’t love this scene from the book?
Some things are just so beautiful you shouldn’t mess with them. Or overlook them.
Small flinty chips. Taking something so common and putting it in a new context makes you see the beauty in the form.
These tiny stones were gathered from the coast at East Yorkshire. I have always loved the beach and sand.

Vintage / antique / upcycled. On oxidised silver plated chains.
What were these keys for? I don’t know. And I LOVE not knowing.
It could be a key from the tea chest. The china cupboard. The church vestry. The opium den. The chastity belt. The key to your dreams. Or fears?
The key to the place where ideas are kept (said wordweave)
I saw this listed somewhere else as a church key – I assume something to do with the shape?
Raw keys waiting to be up-cycled. All different, all beautiful…
A little short key with a big long chain
A teeny tiny key (for the courtisan’s jewelry box?)
I’m tempted to make up a different explanation every time I am asked.
