William Morris Quote

What Drives Us To Shop?

Homemade dress - East London Style.

Homemade dress - East London Style.

Yesterday I rustled up this dress. It is made from a t-shirt and two aprons. I had bought the aprons from a local charity shop some time at the start of last year. The t-shirt was a more recent purchase from our local Traid just before Christmas. As soon as I saw the t-shirt I knew that it would work with the aprons.

I often buy things that I love from charity shops without knowing how I will use them. I trust my instinct that there will be something I do it them. I trust that the reason I am drawn to what ever the item is, is because it is beautiful.

I love this quote by Willian Morris…

Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.
