Follow my highs and lows of a small business, working with junk, repurposing, and creating original treasures!
Im a Visual Merchandiser, Interior Designer, Junk Artist, Collector, and Daydreamer!
My studio is filled with many old and new, shabby and chic, antique and vintage, one-of-a-kind items....
My life, and my home are much the same, 'cluttered and fabulous'!
Come and Browse....


Was I dreaming?

Wow, I feel like I just woke up, dreamt I had a wonderful short break on a cruise ship....

Oh that's right, I did!

Since getting home, my life has been full on, managing a shop has its perks, but it takes up alot of creative time!
Hopefully I will be back to part time soon, and can prepare for my next sale...
Yes, that's right! I have put it in writing!
28th April, 3 weeks away!
You know how I like to do the last minute panic,haha!
This time, Im lucky enough to have some help, and some contributions to the studio.
So I hope the locals can drop on by for a junking fix, there will be lots to shop!

 The weather here has been devine the last few days, so we have to get outdoors when we can, before the rain comes back!

So outdoors we did!

 Apart from pruning trees, doing lawns, and general cleanup on Saturday,
 Sunday was spent with good friends celebrating my dear friend Sue's birthday. If any of you havent ventured to Audley National Park, then you are missing something in your life!

 I grew up going to this lovely place for picnics at least a dozen times a year.
Since I hadnt been there for hmmm, about three decades, I was surprised to see a huge cafe built at the weir.

 The boatsheds were still original, and attracted lots of activity! The day was glorious, as was the food and company.

Why dont we do this more often? This was a question brought up more than once....

Sue with her fairy friends,little Annie is one of her god-daughters.

The lovely maple trees, lushious green grass....and a fairy or three taking shelter from the warm sunrays, made for a relaxing day! 
The food wasnt bad either...Seared Salmon with Nicoise salad and salsa verde...mmm, yumm!

We were going to have a walk, but only got as far as here, and collapsed!
Some great memories resurfaced that day, and now some new ones to add with good friends and  family.

Sue with god-daughters Annie,31/2, and Cara, 231/2(my daughter)

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter spent with family and friends...
 I will be back soon with some sneek-peek pics of items heading for the studio sale!


  1. I came to visit and say hi from Linda great pictures Sue .

    1. Well hi to you too, thanks for visiting!

  2. Love

    As we watch your wings unfold
    And you fly high.
    May you enjoy your life?
    As it was always meant to be
    Love is not something you earn
    Love is something you send out and give and it returns to you
    And you receive
    Love is not selfish
    Love is what it says “love “
    It conquers all things
    Love is the greatest gift of all
    And this we give to you
    For the rest of your days
