A Girl Called Rachel
Its time to feature another creative girl and this time Id like you all to meet Rachel, whom I met through the Etsy DUST team (Down under street team). She is super fun and her enthusiasm and energy is infectious...she's a Go-getter!
Rachel's a busy mum who sews, crafts, blogs and runs an online shop, MissIsa selling eco-friendly, recylced and repurposed paper goods and gifts.
Can you tell us what is currently inspiring you?
Pale light. The sound of wind blowing through closed windows.
Quilts and Hot Coffee.
Name 3 things you couldnt live without right now?
My blackberry, Pinterest and my Husband.
Can you define to us, your personal style?
I'm rather more eclectic than I thought I'd be. I love anthropologie and antique/junk shops. My house is full of crochet blankets and doilies.I wear layers of colour and pussy bow blouses. I love black opaque tights and ballet flats.
I never wear heels because I have bulging disks.
I love my pearl earrings and brooches. I'm fairly sure that I dress like an old lady but I'm cool with that.
Do you have a favourite colour (or colour combinations)?
I just love purple. Almost all shades of purple. I love dusty colours.
What is your favourite Smell/Frangrance?
I wear Cherry Blossom by Demeter
What do you love about your City/Suburb?
I live in Ballarat, Australia. It gets insanely cold here. I've been told that it's the most like England than any other town in Australia, both weather wise and architecturally. I love our local Chocolate Shop with it's fire place and amazing hot chocolates.I love walks around the lake all bundled up in gloves, coats and scarves. I love the rose gardens that sit along the main road in town. I love the Botanic Gardens and it's statue of my ancestor William Wallace.
Do you have a favourite quote you'd like to share with us?
I have so many so I'll just share two of my current favourites. Parks and Recreation.
