Hi there, I’m Renée Botman! I’m a crafter, florist, graphic designer and certified baking nut with a penchant for all things pretty and vintage.
I live in a little ‘outer’ inner-city unit with my husband and two kitties in Perth, Western Australia. I have a courtyard garden that is my sanctuary, in which I endeavor to grow as many of my favourite blooms as possible.
My love of baking stems from the many hours spent with my sister in my mum and nanna’s kitchens. Watching them bake cakes to celebrate with, to enjoy with a cup of tea or to put a perfect finish on a family meal.
My love of craft and sewing comes from sharing cotton strewn dining tables, spare room desks and newspaper covered paving with these same inspiring women.
My love of vintage home wares and styling comes from years spent coveting the tools of the household and decor that filled the kitchen cupboards and linen closets of my child and womanhood, some were passed from my great grandmother to my mum, others have stocked my nanna’s kitchen all her married life. I’ve found comfort in their practicality and well established uses and adore their form and ever lasting style.
Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoy looking around.
If you have any questions, comments or if you just want to say hi, I’d love to hear from you!
