Last night Kelly and I ventured into Brighton to visit our friend Sam Reece who helped us pimp our pants in February. She was having a private view to mark the beginning of her open house, part of Brighton's wonderful festival. Sam's jewellery is an extension of her lovely home which is like a treasure box of beautiful found objects, lights made from old teacups, ornate birdcages filled with fairy-lights and a mantelpiece displaying a collection of heart shaped stones from the beach. Sam's young daughter has started making jewellery too and Kelly came home with one of her pendants, a vintage car and tiny silver dolls' spoons hanging from a fine chain. I bought a patchwork cushion made from squares of old embroidered napkins and tray liners. My photo's don't do it justice, nothing to do with the Pimm's that was flowing, it was candle lit which is rubbish for the amateur photographer.
We weren't quite the last to leave.
It was interesting to see Sam's desk with all her bits and pieces.
