I DIE!!!

Everyone who knows me, will know and understand my pain!!! Words can not describe...

And for those of you who don't...I have given up high fashion and replaced it with buying a house in Yorkshire!!! Where...this GOD of a jacket would go unappreciated.

Not only that...

Do I spend around £2000 on redecoration??? Or on this Givenchy leopard jacket???

Parrot's

When collecting my dry cleaning, I popped into the local antiques centre where I spotted these vile and hideous parrot's...Well, that's what I thought at the time!
Anyway, they ended up coming home with me.

( to the amusement of the other half )




But!!!...how fabulous do the parrot's look that Damian Russell shot - below

( shot in the photographic sence...not BANG BANG )

I'm actually starting to look at my parrot's in a completely different light now!!!!

Plaster...

I purchased a plaster cast of this very famous nose, on a trip to Florence...to the amusement of Jonathan of course. ( Who doesn't get it or ME! )


Weeks later...We received a brief from Living Etc, looking for locations to shoot a 9 page spread 
"Classical Studies" a feature on plaster casts. ( I TOLD YOU SO!!!! )


The location selected Fournier Street  www.shootfactory.co.uk


Living Etc Classical Studies feature.


Some of the plaster cast's featured in Living Etc where from a private collection owned by James Perkins who's house we also represent.

Taxidermy...

Isn't everybody's cup of tea...

( The Bulldog is a little too much for me, only because I'm a proud owner of one! )

But...I do love a little bit of taxidermy. Strange thing for a vegetarian. I know!!!

Raw...

Exposed plaster...brick work and floors.

I love the look of it, but...I don't think my Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder would allow me to live in it.
