A new years resolution, to write a new blog?  yes.  I have started blogs before and abandoned them to rot in cyber land.  Well this new blog will be different from the rest, whether read by an audience or just a place for me to keep my memoirs.  I aim to keep it going.

I am a picture maker, a freelance photographer, a product developer and an ex professional chef.  My history qualifications stop at high school history and art history however, but anything vintage makes me tick.  You will find me polishing silver, window shopping antique stores and fine combing TradeMe, EBay and op shops any moment I can for that special something.

This year I am fulfilling a long term dream of mine to write a vintage photographic book in my spare time, so I will be on the look out for models and many props to loan.  From time to time I will put requests on my facebook page.  

So join me on a journey into the past if you want.  I have a nice old chair saved just for you and some treats!
