I’m happily addicted to Pinterest and also find myself prone to buying books on design, fashion, architecture and style.

      The Re-imagined Stone A stone by any other name would …still go unnoticed. I’ve always had a slight affinity for the underdog, the castaway, the downtrodden, so stones and rocks  inevitably charm me.
