I have been swamped with all sorts of things and haven’t had the chance to blog a complete project yet! But there have been projects aplenty!

We had the opportunity to purchase the house we were renting in August and we finally settled 2 weeks ago. Since then it’s been full steam on painting the house, one room at a time. I’m the only painter in the house, the husband won’t touch a brush. So progress has been rather slow (for me).

Will show and tell various projects soon!




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.
