About

I love crafting and collecting vintage bits and pieces from the 50s, 60s & 70s.

10 Things About Me.

5. I try to juggle a full time job, looking after a home and 2 shops at Etsy: Woollyrockers (Blythe Knits) & Snapdragon Pop! for Handmade vintage-inspired accessories.

6. Cute Vintage fabric prints make me weak!

7. I have a collection of around 30 Blythe dolls.

8. I love the early 60′s British ‘Kitchen Sink’ films. I find them really positive and inspiring.

9. My idea of the perfect day is to have nothing else to do but stay at home sewing, making a mess getting out fabric, ribbon, trims & buttons.

10. I am a bit of an efficiency freak. I love making lists, planning & organising and making the most of every moment.
