My inspiration

Wendy Refvvv

My inspiration comes in many forms but these vintage French button cards

are some of my favourite pieces of ephemera. I have had them for many years

and they are a cherished part of my collection, found in an antique shops in Australia and from France.

I have used them in many collages over the years.

The “Mode” font was the inspiration behind the Mulberry Muse logo!

The card below has my illustration of Marie Antoinette collaged with vintage ephemera

it includes the “Mode” font and other bits and pieces of my original artwork.

Winter sunshine a taste of spring


Working in the Mulberry Muse studio late this afternoon I turned around to see the beautiful

late afternoon sunshine streaming through the window onto the fireplace mantel.

I had purchased some early spring blossom on my walk today and placed it on the mantel.

The sun reflecting on the mirror around the pretty white blossom looked magical.

The simple things bring so much pleasure.

Good morning to you….

tulips wendy paula pattersonxxx

…and thank you for taking the time to visit Mulberry Muse.

It is a glorious winter day in Sydney, sunny, cool and no wind, perfect.

My local fruit and vegetable shop has some beautiful tulips

to brighten this winter’s day even more, the colours are gorgeous.

I photographed them on a vintage breakfast tray napkin that

my Mother embroidered so carefully many years ago.

Have a lovely day wherever you may be…
