A ninety year old called me funky






















So the groom may be long gone...

But the roses remain!

Aparently my very lush flowers inspired me to create this latest rose crown. I have been wearing it nonstop for the last week...
Lets face it, there is always plenty of room in my heart for flowers. I seem to have an insatiable need to dress like a desperately romantic 70s woodland fairy at all times.

Anyway, I was meandering about my locale hangouts, when a bloke randomly shouted 'I see your off to see the horsies darlin!' to which I replied 'Why no, no I just dress this way! Its fun!' Honestly, I had about 12 people ask me if I was going to the melbourne spring racing carnival... nope. Merely posting my etsy orders.

ps. The little old ladies at the post office put in their orders for customized floral crowns. Haha! No really!! A frail ninety year old called it 'very creative & funky.' Perhaps I should start a new store?

Buttons & bows
























So this week I got married!


Ok so not really... I did however, model for a photography conference in the city. Which meant dressing up in a beautiful Wendy Makin gown and pretending to marry a lovely fellow named Grant. Unfortunately it rained the entire day & we were confined to the kodak building so as to not ruin the dress... Such is life. Hubby & I still managed to have a grand time, frolicking about in our wedding finery while 30 plus photographers took snaps.
My favourite moment of the day:
I managed to sneak off into the coffee room when noone was looking. So there I was, sitting at a cafeteria style table reading new idea magazine & munching on an arnotts biccy when a random walked in. He stopped in his tracks and said "WOW! You look beautiful!! But you do realise that people at the office wont judge you if you dress a little more casually... right?"
Anyway, here are some of the first snaps & a behind the scenes view!
lots of love,
Dear Mrs Pretty? xx

ps. Next time I promise to send out the invites well in advance

the fire is wild and the summer's red





















So dust off your short shorts, throw on your favourite pair of wedge heels & come frolick about town with me! Really and truly isnt there something sensational about the warm sunshine rays coming out after a long winter hibernation? The world seems a happier place when the world begins to defrost & flowers come out to play.
Oh by the way, so you know. My latest creative idea is to create super cute playsuits in beautiful vintage prints. Way excited!!! Now to find the perfect vintage pattern to adapt...
with all my heart, dear miss pretty. xx

Todays theme is...


















Snow White Sunday?
I decided to embrace my inner woodland fairy when dressing this morning. In retrospect, an off the shoulder dress was probably not the wisest wardrobe descision for a very windy melbourne day... Perhaps it was worth the goosebumps, because a group of young girls did come over to have a look at my pretty dress. Apart from frolicking around woods picking flowers with my own minature fan club, I found time to look at my pile of sewing jobs, not actually sew, write some letters & listen to hamish n andy podcasts. One of the laziest sundays ever!
What did you do this sunday?
