Pretty ballerina

Gold toned ballerina brooch

Been meaning to share with you this pretty thrifted and fixed brooch… it’s just a cheapie ’50s piece, but I love its delicacy…

Picked up for just $0.50 at Salvos, and then fitted with a new backing from Spotlight with some Araldite..

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.
