i saw this on facebook earlier this week and realised in one of those moments of revelation, that i would have to do just that. create my dream job. there are so many things i love, and i am working hard to ensure that one day i am happy doing something i love, but one thing is for sure, it's not something that is already out there.
i have a dream... of being able to have a job where i can help others to make things beautiful. using beautiful things, old things, things that were maybe used for something completely different... once upon a time. mum and i have a love for vintage, reclaimed, repurposed, upcycled, handmade and all of the likes. it has been in discussion between the two of us, that one day we would love to have a shop together, showcasing all the above... as well as being on hand to style parties, events, even the little everyday things - just in general being able to make things beautiful.
i am researching, pinning, finding inspiration... and hoping to yet make this dream a reality. mum is so talented, with such vision and is someone i know i could spend all that time with, and not be tired of her. watch this space - because although my dream job does not exist... i fully intend to create it.
