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....


Restless and undecisive is me....

So much going on right now in my life and in my head!

It's times like this I become so overwhelmed with the tasks at hand, that I dont accomplish much at all, it is a real struggle to push through ...
Does anyone else feel like this too?

I shouldnt complain , I will be off on a sundrenched island very soon, chillaxing, eating lots of seafood, and drinking lots of cocktails....but there is a bit of pressure to finish off assessments, projects, and jobs before I go.

Hmmm, Ive lost your sympathy right now havent I!

We have also had family events, my sons graduation, my daughters 25th Birthday, and helping out my parents, which has been fun.

In the middle of it all, I decided to switch the living space around, and make it more functional for everyone, oh and always trying to make more room!

I have this alcove which for many years housed this configuration of shelving and cupboard, but in my struggle  journey to simplify, I have sold/given alot of my collections away, and really just wanted some basic shelving for photos, books and a few bits of memorabilia.

With no time to make shelving at present, I decided to add legs to my favourite drawers, and feature them in the alcove for a while.

I love these, and have used them for years filled with mags, candles, all sorts! I love timber, and have it everywhere, but Im feeling these are quite dark, and am close to reaching for a paint brush!

There's always lots to do around here, I probably create more than there needs to be, but for us creative people, though sometimes annoying, it is to be expected!


  1. Looks pretty cool! Have fun on your trip and try to relax!

  2. Thanks Ninny, I will definitely give it a good try ;)

  3. Embrace the chaos of being a creative is through the chaos that our best work is discovered.

    1. Thanku sea witch, I do work better under pressure, well I used to!
      Embracing your words of wisdom!

  4. Maybe it is among the traits of a creative person, to be restless and indecisive! Your place is great to have all your modifications and rearranging plans. Go for it! There’s a lot more space for your crafts and creativity. Your family is very supportive of you and that’s great! I had fun looking at your pictures here.
