Six Random Things about Me

  • 1. When I’m upset, I clean seldom-cleaned spaces, like kitchen cupboard doors, tops of cupboards and cabinets.
  • 2. I can’t stand my pens used by someone else. I know it’s anal… it’s creepy… but all my pens have to be just mine. My fear: I hate my pens dropped.
  • 3. A good chair makes me weak at the knees… one can never have enough of them either.
  • 4. I love chocolate, but only dark chocolate… and never chocolate on its own, but I like it over fresh fruit or with nuts. (And not raisins or dried fruit…)
  • 5. I have too many collections. And I have more I want to start… but I need to cull my addiction.
  • 6. When I drive, I add up digits/numbers on the plates of every vehicle coming/passing me. And I give myself 2 seconds to add them up. I can’t stop this.

    I chew my pens, which is why I can’t stand other people using them, because invariably they start chewing them too.

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.
