Nutcracker costume by Rachel Papo

A row of pretty pink tutus and ballerina costumes is such an evocation of childhood dreams, a fantasy world and frill-filled hopes.

I’d love this by Rachel Papo. But at $600 a print… that’s just something I’ll have to enjoy onscreen and printed out on my home colour printer to stick onto my inspiration board.

Purchase Rachel Papo‘s print at ClampArt Gallery.

Brian from ClampArt kindly also referred me to a MUCH more affordable print by Rachel Papo at 20×200. Entitled Nastya Before Class, St. Petersburg, Russia for $20.

Thanks Brian.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend! We’re going to be busy clearing junk in our house for the council hard rubbish collection on Monday!

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.
