English Women


As I start the year working on a new online trove...The Silent Gallery...where my collection will be sharing space with treasures and inspiration..

 On the 31st of December the postman delivered an incredible brown paper wrapped package, it included a first edition of Edith Sitwell’s book English Women.

Mrs. Siddons by Sir Thomas Lawrence


This tiny hardback has a pencil written note inside saying:


 ' Joan,

 with love,


 XMas 1943


This little treasure briefly depicts the life of brilliant and beautiful English women from Emily Bronte to Florence Nightingale 

I anticipate many of their stories will be shared in this space  soon......
