I’ve been trying to collect them especially since we moved and I painted my large and high living room 3-4 coats of white :) I don’t have as many nice ones since they are getting expensive…

This is my latest… a floral bouquet painted 2 years ago by my husband’s 94 year old Nanna.

Of course, my selection is way more faded than the first picture above. That looks more vibrant. I may still choose that route.

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.
