Hey. My name is Elyse. I've returned to Sydney after 18 wild and fun years as an expat and I live to travel, sew and opshop. I'm a single mother and freelance creatrix (sometime writer, editor, crafter, sewist, proofreader, designer, photographer, teacher...) currently devising my next plan for world domination. At the moment, I am obsessed with finding vintage tapestries in op shops, Yasujiro Ozu films and Kernow chocolate. My blog is about all the things I love - travel, fabric, craft, op-shops, simple living, organic and wholesome food, design, sewing, writing, yoga, reading, eco-consciousness ... and my struggle between wanting to be a minimalist and wanting to attempt every craft I can think of. I hope you can find something here that is useful or inspiring. Have a lovely day.
