Much of my inspiration comes from the ephemera I have collected over the years.

I have a wonderful collection of French antique button cards and display

many of the prized ones in a vintage French lantern box  and a set of old desk drawers

together with an assortment of vintage lace, wooden spools, vintage and antique sewing ephemera.

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!
