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.

Busy, Busy Times!!

Gee my blogs are getting more and more apart these days but I do have an excuse. I have been super busy co-producing Australia's First Annual Burlesque Festival and its only (yikes!!) less than two weeks away!! So much to do and so little time. Thank goodness I am hooked up with a fabulous team whom are just wonderful to work with. It so does help when you find the right mix.
I am also about to launch something new relating to burlesque which is a great project and will hit Melbourne in July. Stay tuned for that one folks.
After that I am off to Europe with my gal pals for some fun times! Going to High Rockabilly in Spain, then London and then Paris. Oh la la!!! I can taste the croissants already.

People Who Inspired Me This Past Fortnight

I just wanted to write a quick post on all the wonderful people who have inspired me over the past week or so. I think I sometimes forget that there are so many wonderful people that pop into and out of my life so its nice to reflect.
My husband
Always has my back when the chips are down. Hates it when people treat me unjustly.
My best friend
Such a guiding force in my life. We share all and her friendship is unconditional and totally supportive. An ear I can call on at anytime. Love this gal!! You know who you are.
My sewing buddies
Love sharing my passion for sewing and fabric with these gals. They relax me and make me laugh.
My business partners
Wonderful women who inspire and make me feel good about being me.
My sister
I finally reconnected and am so glad!!

Sometimes its so easy to focus on the negative but there really are so many wonderful people around us so lets celebrate.
