about the bird and cage I styled in my last piece - I thought I’d better share!

“Captain Flint” was purchased from my fav homewares store Ruby & Leo

It’s full of Devine pieces that make a house a home - along with my furniture , of course 😘

So if you’re a Geelong local- pop in to say hello to Simone and maybe pick yourself a Polly or some other delight.
