Sally

A slightly mystical picture I took of Sally standing in the doorway of a beautiful old church in Normandy. I'm ashamed to say that I've only got a vague sense of French history so I couldn't tell you about its past. All I know is that the 90 something year old lady it belongs to was an unexpected apparition that day and her richly coloured stories about the war were compelling. An extraordinary woman with scattered nuggets of historical gold!
Sally shares my passion for vintage hand-embroidered Mexican dresses. Between the two of us we have an extensive collection consisting of original pieces (as opposed to the sometimes unforgivably hideous copies I saw in the high street this summer)...
