About Bonita

Hello and welcome! 

I am so pleased to meet you! Thank you so much for visiting my blog, Lavender & Twill, and wanting to find out more about the lady behind the page.

My name is Bonita and I am a vintage enthusiast and artist from Canberra, Australia.  This is a place where I pour out my passion for a beautiful, vintage fashion and creative lifestyle. 

I know as busy mothers and creatives, or indeed ~ being a woman as we are! ~ it can be so easy to get bogged down in all the minutiae of day to day living. I don't want to let that hold me back from finding beautiful inspiration in anything ~ everything I do.

I’m all about the glamour of the past, combined with the best freedoms of our modern day... 

On this blog, Lavender & Twill, and in my other social media, I chronicle my journey in vintage style and creative living, and hopefully inspire you to look for the beautiful moments in your life too. Whether that will be through the fashions you dress in and express yourself through, or the flowers you decorate your home with, or the hobbies you pursue and enjoy, it's all up to you ~ but...

Life is what we make it, so let's make it beautiful! 

So that is why I am here. (•ᵕ ᴗ ᵕ•)

Now for some of what my daily life involves...

I am most happily married to a wonderful man, whom I call The Mister, and we have a small family with three beautiful children ~ a boy and two girls. I am passionate, crazy busy, shopping obsessed, and also a creative. 

That means that most days you will find me dressed in genuine vintage, vintage reproduction, or vintage appropriate fashion, styling mainly authentic looks from my favourite mid-century eras, the 1940s or 1950s. Sometimes I will foray into other looks, because let's face it ~ playing with fashion is fun! But no matter what I'm wearing, my style choices reflect who I am: feminine, vintage adoring, china doll, frilly, girly, lover of all dresses, pastels, lace, and pearls usually topped off with my signature hair bow. 

Being a creative also means that I tend not to be able to either sit still for a second without having something for my hands to do, or manage to confine myself to only one passion and voice of expression!  I happily describe myself as a multipassionate as my hobbies include, but are not limited to:

traditional art & comic art
cross stitch

Add a hefty dose of active inclination, in which I pursue snowboarding, pilates, and top it off with a lifelong addiction to all things equine. I have a lasting desire to ride to the higher levels of Grand Prix dressage with my horse, and pursue my equestrian goals with great enthusiasm.

A few of my favorite things include:

my family & friends
thrifting & antique shop diving
pastel colors
old, tumble-down houses
coordinating all the things!

I think that just about sums it up, but for more details about me, my art, or my blog, be sure to check out my FAQ page.
