Too funny!

My cousin Sue's dining chairs with new upholstery covers

Our local fabric superstore in Australia, Spotlight sells a crafters and DIYers heaven’s delight which includes 1000s of fabrics.

How funny then, to see blogland-friend Viv from Ish and Chi pick out the *same* fabric to recover some vintage chairs that I used for my cousin’s dining chairs!!

Of course, Viv’s photography is much more sensational since it’s got great lighting! Cousin’s place is a tad dark!

Psst, I’ll be suggesting to said cousin another splurge on her cute bachelorette pad soon!

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.
