20 July 19: Shelfies are a moveable feast

Did you ever borrow clothes or make-up from your mum?

I can’t recall ever doing this: I loved my mum but our wardrobe tastes weren’t exactly congruent. However, I do remember frequently borrowing props for my bedroom interiors projects (read ‘How shall I rearrange my mantlepiece today?’)

I’d take fossils and crystals from our ‘treasure cupboard’ to complete the vignette, as well as the odd vase or pot. I think it set the tone for what I do with interiors today: I never see objects as static but in a state of flux, waiting to be moved around to produce the best scenes.

How about you? What sort of ‘borrower’ were you? Clothes and make-up, or interiors objects, like me?
