I saw this on the wall of a building in Istanbul and found it beautiful:
My niece Meredith is just about to graduate from Central St Martin's after three intense years studying Art Criticism, Communication and Curation. As you can see she is following in family footsteps. And as I look back into the last 100 years of the Women's Institute for my latest project, the family links keep appearing. My grandfather, about whom Meredith writes in her blog, started on the shop floor at Woolworth's Princes Street store in Edinburgh in the 1920's, and went on to be Managing Director. He pursued his interest in arms, armour, clocks and furniture at the same time. I am now sitting at my desk finishing my manuscript for the WI in my 17th Century cottage, furnished with pieces from his collection of English early oak furniture. And reading Merry's blog.... I love the serendipity of it all.
