Hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a cultural weekend with a visit to the Brisbane Museum to see the beautiful butterfly arrangements of The Butterfly Man of Kuranda. If you haven't had a chance to go along and see this magnificent display you are missing something quite amazing, even my 4 year old enjoyed looking at these beautiful creatures up close. Collected by F.P & A.P. Dodd from 1917 through to the 1960's, the insect and butterfly arrangements are presented by the museum as part of the International Year of Biodiversity. These painstakingly arranged collections are quite wonderful! At the Brisbane Museum until the 12th July 2010.
Hello .... My name is Michelle, welcome to my blog. I am an artist and serial home renovator living in Brisbane, Australia. I enjoy looking for treasures in op-shops and antique stores, and have a love of modern interiors with a mid century modern, or vintage/retro vibe. This site is about my life, my love of designing, and the creation of my paper art.
I am currently studying interior design so part of my blog serves as a place to hold my growing collection of "interior inspirations".
Thank you for visiting. I would be delighted if you took the time to leave a comment.

Each of my designs are taken mainly from exquisitely illustrated 1950's/60's/70's books. Most of these books are sourced from op-shops and, having been loved by others, are often damaged in some way. My art brings stories to life setting free beautiful illustrations that may otherwise remain shelved and unread.
