I’m not a professional photographer I don’t claim to be a photographer I do however capture moments with my Samsung galaxy S5.📷

My previous claim to fame was through Hook and Linen where I created and crocheted Vintage fabric floor mats aka Rag rugs which were featured in various magazines


I am a stay at home Mum  of 1, a daughter ,who has taught me to

(as quoted by shabby chic founder Rachel Ashwell)

  “Appreciate the Beauty in Imperfection ” as Miss J  was born with Cerebral Palsy.Mermaid beach 2007

 My journey on  making Hand crocheted Vintage Fabric Floor mats  started with a love of Shabby chic ,Decor Magazines and craft . While searching for my niche’, I came across an article on the pioneer women before us who made “do”   during the  days of depression and war, Rag rug making was one of them. I drew inspiration from this  while suffering from my own  “depression”.

 I taught myself to crochet and with the help of various sources , away I went. I Love it. It’s the stress relief I’ve been searching for. I love mixing the colors sourcing the materials and creating a functional item from an old-fashioned craft. Some things DO last forever.!..

 These items are Hand done with vintage fabrics which may contain slight imperfections, so if you are a perfectionist this type of item may not be for you. 😉
