My name is Vickie and I live just outside Brisbane, Australia with my partner ... about one hour's drive from Brisbane city, sort of in the country but a place which is growing all the time.
I don't have any chuildren, but I have two Balinese cats called Sasha and Chantelle who I love to death ... surely the most pampered and luckiest pussies that ever lived!
I live in a 110 year old Queenslander and I love decorating, so that's pretty well what my blog is about. I love the vintage, white on white, shabby chic style of decorating with the old and the new together ... but where most people would say my style is shabby chic, really I'm not a decorator and I just buy what I love and make it fit! So, that's my style ... only ever buy lovely things which must be useful and keep moving it around until it looks good!! I don't much like clutter and with so many beautiful things to buy, it's difficult to keep my home uncluttered, but I believe it's the little pretties that make a home a home and not a show home. Visit my photo albums and "My Home" to see what I like.
I absolutely love watching decorating programmes and especially love Design Inc. I love Sarah Richardson style, the way she uses the vintage and new and just the way she puts it all together ... exactly what I'm not really good at.
I also love looking in magazines (a big weakness which I'm trying to cure) and all the lovely blogs which are so inspiring ... and certainly help my magazine addiction ... thank goodness blogs are free to browse!
I hope you enjoy my blog ... I try to use as many original pictures as I can, mixed with showing you what I find to be really inspiring and pretty. I am a very private person, so I'm not quite sure why I'm blogging, but we'll see where it goes!
