My girls and fashion watercolours

I finally got the gift my sister got for my birthday last Sep 2009 a frame and a home on the wall. I love it there.

Last week, I scored a gilt, wooden, ornate frame for it while thrift-shopping (yay!). I had every intention of painting the frame a lovely egg blue but when the Kate Spade print was inserted, it felt complete.

My MIL loves it too!

Of course, in this tiny home I have to be so careful what I place on the walls. I can’t wait to get back into a proper house (I so miss my previous home) so I can put up my other pieces, like my David Downton and Janet Hill collection.

So for now, I treasure these splendid one offs.

On a nearby wall I have just ONE Janet Hill up.

Nearby again, I have this small, sweet vintage oil painting of a lady in pink, staring into the sea. I got her from the Camberwell Markets, VIC a year ago. I love her.

If you have been following me for a while now, you’ve seen pictures of my previous home and would have deduced the obvious fact: I love art.

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.
