home for sale sign

We recently had people walk through the house we are renting as it is on the market. I’m not sure about you, but while I take photos of our home and put it on the blogosphere, it’s nothing like having strangers come into your home, walking amongst your things, while you’re not home.

I felt incredibly violated. Vulnerable.

It’s something to note the next time I walk into someone’s home for sale. Never to take for granted the vulnerability of allowing a stranger to traispe through the house.

Totally different from a staged open house with furniture and items that belong to no one.

Have you felt that way before?

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
