I was tagged by the lovely Concrete and Honey…So, here are the rules:
Step 1: Respond & Rework – Answer the questions on your own blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.
Step 2: Tag-eight other un-tagged people.

Say something to the person who tagged you: It was really lovely to meet you in my shop! I knew that I would know you through some round-about connection… Sydney can be a small city.
If you could have a house-totally paid for, fully furnished-anywhere in the world, where you want it to be? Up in the hills on the far north coast of NSW. It would be a rickety old farmhouse that I would fill with depression era furniture and my collection of Hilary Herrmann paintings, the breeze would blow in the windows through tattered lace curtains, In the morning I would collect eggs from my chickens and I would spend the day tending to my big vegetable garden and painting in my studio behind the house and as the sun went down I would relax and have a long soak in an old claw-foot bath.
Favorite vacation spot? Hat Head, it’s like the old Byron Bay.
