Famous person I admire and why ? well I admire many but for this exercise I am choosing Martha Stewart,she put accomplished house wives on the map – recognizing that putting things together well takes skill and dedication. When she was learning to cook she went through the cook book till she knew ever recipe perfectly – now that’s determination and grit.
She made money out of a “woman’s” work, and lifted all of us home fixers to a new level of recognition. I think she is a fantastic example to females the world over, and she reminds me of my mum, who did such amazing things with her home, flowers food and entertaining- I have such incredible memories. Thanks Mom for being the Martha in my life, and showing me that appearances do matter.

I might have been an apprentice painting close to Raphael. Heard arguments for and against the world is flat theory. Seen the mad ministrations of the powerful and besotted. Donned masks & luxurious clothing and mingled in disguise at the fabulous masked bals and reinvented myself. What an incredible time that must have been.
