Over the last few years I have been having a lounge dilemma! Many moons ago, after a shopping trip Mr Jack of all Trades and I arrived home with a sofa bed with an Aztec print in blue and red....... I completely loved it and thought it would never go out of fashion, how very wrong of me! And, how wrong it was of us to leave it in our loungeroom for all to see for way too many years. The dilemma was not just the ugly sofa bed but what to replace it with. Do I buy a new one or hunt on ebay for a super retro one. The decision was made for me when lovely Mr Jack arrived home after helping his Mother clean up his late Aunties farmhouse. I literally squealed with delight, jumped up and down and almost wet my pants....(true!) when we unloaded this! It is so perfect and exactly what I would have chosen if I'd seen it on ebay. It is Number 4 of my favourite things.
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
