After a long conversation yesterday with SQ it was decided that we do indeed possess the naughty gene, for me being a secretary for many years I guess it came with the territory, they do after all have a club for us and for SQ well lets just say her teenage years, apart from being very character building for me, have left me with plenty of examples. So next time you have to drive 30 minutes to go hire a movie because every video shop within a 10 kilometre radius has overdue late fees remember these wise words ....

Collage Artist & Cardmaker, Collector of Pretty Vintage Frocks & Domestic Goddess Wannabe.
Mum and stepmum to four gorgeous girls, Style Queen (SQ), Rock Chic (RC) Photo Girl (PG) and Numbers Lady (NL) and nanny to three little ladies. Lives with boy, RC, two naughty dogs and stalker cat in 1950's cottage being renovated by said boy just like Noah from The Notebook.
Rather partial to opshopping, vintage haberdashery, old frocks, trashy romance novels, glass glitter, Australian ephemera, Florence Broadhurst wallpaper, vintage tickets, doilies, polka dot mixing bowls, millinery flowers, rhinestone brooches, nanna tins, salvaged sewing patterns, retro flower curtains, chenille bedspreads, chandeliers, discarded photographs, cut glass cakestands, kitchen cannisters, royal winton teasets and baking cupcakes. Perfect holiday would be travelling Australia with vintage caravan in tow and stopping at EVERY SINGLE country op shop along the way.
