"The Wonder of The World."

Upcycling vintage finds to create a magical crazy tea party for my son who is seven.

We live in apartments that face other apartments in his room anyway, and I so wanted him to have a curtain that stimulated his mind in the way nature does.

He named this mad bird tea party; “The Wonder Of The World.” So I guess it must have worked. : )

It sort of grew and became just aliuve.

Almost all of the work is upcycled.

Material Notes

anything that clashes is patterned, is tactile, bright and imaginitive.
