I love to read interviews of fascinating people but none have inspired or moved me as much as that of Milliner, Behida Dolic, who moved from Bosnia to the USA in 1998 as a refugee of the Balkan War. What does handmade mean to you? Handmade to me means a reaction from a stranger that goes something like this: ”Oh my God, where did you get that beautiful thing?” Then we both smile and the answer is mutually understood." The interview can be found here. Behida's etsy shop featuring her spectacular cloches can be found here Pure Beauty, inside and out x
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.
