Welcome- l'uccello's new store/studio is now officially open. It's so satisfying to see it all together at last, and to have visitors enjoying the space. It was a lovely day with customers from Marche Rouge returning, new customers, dear friends and most special of all a surprise visit by my precious mum and most fabulous husband. Thank you all for the support and encouragement.

A quick tour of l'uccello-

My favourite basket full of lovely vintage fat quarters.

Just what every glamourous girl needs

Sooo loving a snap dragon

Cutest vintage kokeshi dolls

I hang things that inspire me on this rack, different colour and texture combinations

A section of two large collages I have done at the end of the room made up from my collection of vintage textiles, ribbons, lace, buttons, tapesties and  ephemera.

This is one of my favourite pieces of lace, it's from Belgium.

This is part of the millinery department, some of these lovelies are around 70 years old
