hello lovelies! <3
my name is essie, and i'm from melbourne, australia.
i study psychology part time and i love learning about people and how they work (socially, emotionally and physiologically).
my style is vintage
i love natural materials, earthy colours - dusty rose pink, sage green, earthy browns, creams, dark purples and blues.
i love animals, and i have three cats and a dog. if i could i'd have a pig, a goat, some chickens, and some rabbits too
i collect vintage teacups, and love all things tea-related.
i view my tumblr as a kind of 'lookbook' for my personal taste, and if you want to know what i like, that's a pretty good place to start. i also have a wist and a blog. they're all linked in my signature, so feel free to visit and look around!motifs i love are
: hearts, foxes, lace, deer, rabbits, cats, teacups & roses.crafts
an amigurumi toy of something i love (teacup, fox, etc)
a garland/bunting (fabric, paper, croched)
an embroidery in a hoop

a pencil/makeup case
a hand carved stamp

a brooch or badge
a plushie animal
some potholders, an apron, or some other kitchen-related thing***mega outlandish wish of craziness***
= a granny square blanket (made from non-synthetic yarn). i desperately want one of these but lack the skills to make one. i'd be happy to discuss a reciprocal lap-quilt for anyone willing to undertake this, and i'm sure we could arrange an extended send date for a project of this size.kits
anything related to embroidery or cross stitch
a simple sewing project supplies
quilting fabric (i can never get enough fat eighths or fat quarters!)
cute sewing pins
embroidery floss or other embroidery supplies (nb i have almost the whole dmc range, but would love to receive floss that's hand-dyed, or unique to your area)
