about denise...
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe vibrant tension between old and new items alongside each other and the surprise of traditional in a contemporary and unexpected makes me happy. I delight in filling life with creations that I make and objects found in obvious and sometimes obscure places.   I trained as a Home Economist and  have worked in journalism and interior design and for a while I owned an eclectic coffee shop.  I have raised 3 amazing children, been a wife to a very supportive husband and have spent many hours idearefurbishing, re-inventing, recycling and creating.

thanks for visiting :-)
