Blue milk glass collection

Thanks for waiting. I have needed the time to be inspired again, to push through some hurdles and begin to create again, to start to imagine once more.

ou know how they say that your home is a reflection of you? Well, it feels like the head is clearer, the heart is more open now that we’ve done some fairly major room-changes and furniture clear-out-and-clean-up.

I must say, while my core tastes haven’t changed, I have grown to eschew “new” in favour of “vintage” and “custom” and “one-offs” more and more!

What about you?

Isn’t this collection of vintage blue milk glass beautiful? We don’t seem to get many coloured milk glass in Australia!

    Good to see you back! You really do have to feel motivated to blog. Sometimes it can really be hard. That photo is beautiful. I love colored glass. Whenever I find it in an antique shop it's always way over priced!!! I hope to find some bargains out there somewhere! My tastes have also changed. I do find myself wanting more vintage things now a days!

    Honestly the best ideas come to you when you take breaks. I find my artistic nature increases when I take a break and go for a walk. take all the time you need.


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.
