It's me, it's the new design, the new name....

Woohoo we're here, it's happened. The new design is in place as well as the new name. I have so many people to thank for their help, advice, support in helping me achieve these changes and helping motivate me to move on with my dreams.

I hope you all like the new design and the header which is also my business logo now too. All the thanks for this incredible header design has to go to Gillian at Tessie Girl. I shared with her the thoughts I had in my head for the imagery and she made it come to life. I wanted it to be reflective of me being a mum, my love of vintage and my business the appeal it has.


The reality of it all is at the end of the day I'm a mum, looking after my kids, trying to piece together my vintage dream and business and I think Gillian has done an incredible job of bringing it all together. Gillian you rock my socks. Please be sure to pop on over and say hi to Gillian and let her know how awesome she is.

Secondly on a technical front and installing the new design, I have to thank one of the best blogging buddy a girl could have Melissa from Suger Coat It. Not only does this beautiful soul regularly answer my blogging questions, she has become a buddy I'm in her corner cheering her on and all that she takes on in her adventures. To add to that she is the stabilising force when I'm having a technical blog issue or meltdown, seriously people my brain isn't meant to handle some things and that's where Suger saves my butt. You knows I love you sweetness.

There are several other words of thanks I want to send out, and to save this turning into an epic post of thanks and links I will save it for another post. Also I know there are a few others that have been with me for this journey and have been major players in helping me direct this dream into reality, FINALLY. I know some of you and you know who you are will appreciate the quiet words of thanks privately. Your support, encouragement, assistance, enthusiasm, and belief in me is appreciated beyond measure.

So for now let's get on with it, start stretching our legs out in here. I will still be tweaking with some basic design and layout stuff, where things sit and look best and streamlining other things. But for all intensive purposes its all systems go.

I know I’m a little late to the party, but I just want to say congratulations! Change is always good, especially if it’s for the better. It’s heartwarming to know that lots of people appreciated you and willing to help you in times of difficulties. Anyway, you have a great new design. It really suits your fashion style.
