I am madly in love with anything vintage and have been for over 20 years or so now. The appeal for me with the 1940s and 1950s started when I was a teenager because I just didn't find the modern lifestyle appealing or romantic. So from about the age of seventeen I was hooked on the clothing, the furniture and the music. I can't get enough and enjoy being around others who love it as much as me. What a way to live! I wouldn't ask for it any other way. Now I can write a blog about my lifestyle and the things I enjoy and feel passionate about.

Me, Myself and I

Well this is my very first blog and I am excited to be here. Not sure what to write really but I'll give it a try. On holidays right now and enjoying the rest!! It is so nice to recharge the batteries don't you think??
My major plan for this week is to attempt to paint my lounge room. Not very relaxing I know but I love the end result of seeing something new and fresh. We have a lovely little home that is decked out in mostly 1950s furniture and bric-a-brac as we are nuts for that era. Give me 1949 to 1956 anytime over modern today. Furniture and clothing that is!
Our lounge is currently painted minty green with a feature wall that is a light coral colour. Mmm hard to describe this colour as my husband made it up. I do love vintage colours like the pallet I have attached. Quite difficult to find colours like that anymore.
Then I am moving onto my garden. I have a succulent/cactus garden that is incomplete and frustrating me! Need to get going on it really. Here are some inspirational garden ideas. What do you think?
