Hi, I'm Mel. I live in a beautiful country town in the Adelaide Hills region of South Australia in "The Old Croft" an 1870's stone cottage with my husband, Wayne, our three kids and our Border Collie, Sally.
I have always had a passion and loved old and vintage - whether it be houses, buildings, furniture or memorabilia. I grew up in two old houses and can't remember a time when I didn't enjoy all they have to offer. Now I have an old house of my own to restore and renovate and a home to keep all of my treasured vintage wares.
At the beginning of 2013, I decided to start this blog as a memoir of the restoration journey of "The Old Croft" and all my adventures along the way.
