What does "not quite vintage" mean? Well, it definately doesn't refer to my age. At 30+ I hope I am far from vintage. What it does refer to is a business I would like to start someday - a corner shop that sells vintage inspired goods. I am drawn to 40s and 50s kitchenware, linens and pottery. Plus, I love the crafts my grandmother used to do: embroidery, beaded ornaments, chrochet etc. To somehow mix these loves into a business would be a dream come true.

My blog philosphy: To use this site as a place to chat about the crazy things that happen to me, my pursuits of a well decorated home, my quest for fitness and my crafty trials. Pretty much a place to ramble and share my thought with friends. Plus, its a bit of a creative outlet.

Big project... I'll keep you posted.
