I want my blog to celebrate all the joy that surrounds me with my family and friends. To acknowledge all the little moments of happiness and wonder in every day. Although I live in an inner city suburb my heart and soul yearns for the country (I have been accused of trying to turn our garden into a farm before now). With a husband, six children, three cats and a cerebrally challenged black Labrador my life is crazily busy but I am always looking for new projects to immerse myself in. I could not be without books, art and music in my life and I love to cook and create new bits and pieces for my home. I love old, vintage and pre-loved objects all of which have a story to tell. Pieces that have been battered by life are welcome here. To me it is the imperfections in people and objects that gives them character and charm.
