This week's instalment of my place and yours is "bedside". Now my bedside is not very exciting so I went for what was on my bedside wall....

This is an apron I bought when I visited Thailand, I believe it is a part of the traditional costume of one of the hill tribes. 
Such beautiful vivid colours!

The September Issue

I finally went to The September Issue and loved it!

I thought it was sad that Anna's family didn't seem to take her job seriously. She was a bit chilly but not the ice queen she has a rep for, she was just doing her job!

Over the years I have saved a stack of the most beautiful and inspiring editorials and Grace Coddington with her wild red hair has been the stylist for most of them.

Here are some pics of the 1920's shoot Grace did for the September 2007 issue

Where do you work?

I am extremely jealous of pepole who have a studio space of their very own to make their magic happen.

My handbags are made in my bedroom, which I share with my boyfriend. Thankfully he is one of the most understanding and patient people I've met and does not complain too much about pins and sewing machines everywhere!

Share Some Candy is doing a feature series on creative work spaces! 

Check it out here

This is my own work space series........

I am loving Fly's short fashion videos!
They are a collaboration with designers like
Hussein Chalayan, Christian Doir and Zac Posen.

This is what they have to say...

"FLY began as a unique platform that brought artists together from all creative disciplines (fashion, art, music, dance, photography and design) and used the power of film and technology to showcase the work globally. FLY become next step in the evolution of the traditional print magazine. By adding motion and sound, FLY brought the traditional two dimensional magazine to life."

Granny Squares

I love love love this sweater! It makes me want to learn how to crochet!
Such great colours and cute granny squares.
Pip (the craft queen) from Meet Me At Mikes loves her granny squares
and tells you how to make them on her blog.
I think this sweater would be one of those long term projects that took a few years of
on and off again dedication! I better get grannying!
