Mum loves Lavender and where ever she is seems to find some to fill one of her many pots, vases and jugs.
This is my Parents bedroom and shows my Mums love of that older English country style. Mum is going through the motions now of re decorating this space into a French boudoir.
His beautiful fireplace in the living room is something Dad made up as he went. Mum had given him a rough idea of what he wanted and away he went. It is a talking piece and many have wanted one. I was lucky to have one of my Dads fireplaces in the home we built when we lived near by…the couple who bought it wanted the fireplace to be included in the sale (it was an unfixed one) as I had it filled with burning candles on viewing day and she fell in love.
Another bargain find was this Chandelier which she picked up here in Tassie while visiting us for some ridiculous amount…then Dad made up about 50 little wire rings to string vintage crystal pieces to it.
I am not sure if this lamp was picked up at a market or thrift store, but I do like it and her birds that were bought for a few dollars. So, you see I was surrounded by loads of creative influences as a child and teen and I am so proud of them for shaping me into the savvy bargain hunting, fabric loving, Interior obsessed Woman I am today…thanks Mum and Dad.
