The journey to here

It's been over 4 months since I took over Life Story and the journey has seen the introduction of Wolf & Moon jewellery, Marie Varley screenprints, Lisa Donati cards, Tools to Liveby stationery, midcentury one-off furniture plus House Doctor homewares. Shortly ferm Living will become the newest supplier. ferm LIVING draws on Scandinavian design traditions and retro charm, but with a distinctive graphic edge that makes every item firmly contemporary. I believe you will love it.  My other (much more complicated) business took my attention fully for the past two months so some plans were put on hold and just starting again, you'll have to wait a while for...

Our featured artist this Spring is Marie Varley. The inspiration for this series of Marie Varley's work is derived primarily from a stamp album dating from the 1960s.  "In this era, the postage stamp was the greatest ambassador for its country.
