RC is returning home tomorrow and whilst I await a reasonable rate to return her new ensemble that isnt going to cost me as much as the actual bed I was reminded of my favourite fairytale whilst I endeavoured to make her old single more comfortable. A trip to Pillowtalk and one eggshell underlay along with one double plush mattress cover, vintage floral sheets and comfy dooner, layer upon layer, a la princess and the pea. Perfect! Oh yes and we are back it seems the outback was not for me as I explained to SQ I feel like Nicole Kidman in Australia but Hugh's in the pub working 17 hours a day.
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.
