composition me : week two


created from my flea market and antique shop finds from across the globe. enjoy.

tomorrow I'm going to disneyland paris for 3 days with work - mainly for a sort of conference but hopefully we'll get a chance to meet mickey&minnie too!

I'd normally post this on a monday but thought I'd post it tonight as I'm away.

prada : fashion defined

it doesn't get more beautiful than this (until their summer collection...)

fashion isn't a regular feature on abigail's treasure, but prada's stunning use of textures, fabrics, craftmanship, colour and photography makes the always post-worthy

composition me : week one


see the rainbow at the top, caught on camera :)

do you have multiple design styles/interests/looks/collections?

starting this week I am posting a weekly composition using found objects that represent a side of my design style/aesthetic eye.

let me know what you think, which ones are your faves going forward :) also do you prefer the graphic layout (top) or boxed assortment (bottom)?

winter sunshine

my room is a myriad of mirrors, glass and rainbow makers. Wintry morning sunshine transforms into in a sparkly wonderland - so delicate and beautiful.
