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.

Aussie Burlesque Fest Over and Other News

Hello there,
Sorry for my delay in blogging for over a month but I have an excuse. The Australian Burlesque Festival is now over for another year and gee did it keep me and the team busy. Yowza!! Now trying to finalise admin and the likes. Here's a pix for you to view of me mid-performance in Melbourne.

On another note I am producing a new burlesque event called 'Shimmy Shake' with one of my partners which we are looking forward too. A fabulously glamorous line-up.

Now onto other non-burlesque activities and items of interest.
1. My lovely gal pal Mich put me onto this exhibition which some of you maybe interested in if you LOVE Alfred Shaheen vintage like we do. Check it out.

2. My pal and I also worked out how to thread my brand new overlocker!! I know this sounds trivial but these things are quite technical until you know how. We both felt like we were doing micro-surgery. A great overlocker btw.
