2011 heralds many changes for our family, fresh starts and new adventures after what can only be described as a very challenging year last year. Suffice to say I was extremely excited to ring in the new year. There is magic in the air! The seeds have been sown, now its time to bloom.
Bloom collage created using vintage floral print, old dust cover from a trashy romance novel and vintage playing card. Frame is from a garage sale last year.
"Bloom where you are planted" proverb
"The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.” Thich Nhat Hanh quotes (Vietnamese Monk, Activist and Writer. b.1926)
As long as we are persistence in our pursuit of our deepest destiny, we will continue to grow. We cannot choose the day or time when we will fully bloom. It happens in its own time.” Denis Waitley quotes (American motivational Speaker and Author of self-help books. b.1933)

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.
