The Matchbook Magazine Questionnaire... Just for Fun... Although I do so wish that someday they'll be interviewing me for some reason or another!
Tea or Coffee? Coffee, two cream
I collect... Oh God... everything? Can that be an answer? Ok, here are several of the obsessions: vintage handbags, brooches, floral tins, books, silhouette paintings on convex glass, vintage paintings of English cottages, handkerchiefs, locally made bath and body products... I swear there's probably more, too!
Favourite City? I loved Charlottetown as far as cities go, but I'm more of a small town kinda gal, so I will have to say - other than my own hometown of Shawville - I really love Tweed, Ontario, and Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.
Spring or Fall? Fall... it's not even a question!
Blossom of Choice? Like the above picture - pink tulips
Style Icon? I love Audrey Hepburn's classic look, but I've also been inspired by a woman I worked with last year. She was all about scarves, headbands, wide belts, long tunics, and minimal make-up. She always looked classy.
Cologne? Pretty by Elizabeth Arden
Linens? I am currently loving these microfiber sheets from the Sears catalogue. The were only twenty bucks, and they're so smooth and cool.
China Patterns? I can't believe this is actually a question. Do people still pick out china patterns? I dunno... I like anything vintage that has those tiny cracks that make it look like it was used and loved.
I'm lusting after... downsizing and using what I already have. Look out Salvation Army... there's a large deposit going to be made soon!
Most Prized Possession? Oh wow this is tough. I have so many awesome vintage furniture pieces: the make-up station, the secretary desk, the wash stand I bought in PEI, the writing desk my mom bought me years ago, the wooden chest built by my great-grandfather that I use as a coffee table. I do love a ring I got from my mom last year at Christmas time. It was the perfect present and it's something I'll cherish forever.
Girl Crush? Any woman who has made herself known - or unknown - by doing things her way, without compromise.
Boy Crush? I could become a home-wrecker for Mark Harmon.
On Weekends... I leave the city and disappear for a bit. It's good for the soul.
