7 (random!) Things About Karen at Restyled Vintage:

1. I am a proud Kiwi (aka a New Zealander!) but sometimes I wish we lived somewhere warmer

2. I have just turned 39 years old (arggggh!) and I am now old enough to know that you never really feel any different inside as your number gets bigger and your face gets more wrinkles, lol

3. I got a job at a bank when I left school and left after 17 yrs of service
4. I *love love love* VW Beetles and we borrowed 3 of them to use as our wedding cars
(yes, they are photos of photos...I am SUCH a technological whiz ;P)
5. We have a Golden Retriever called Tequila
6. I am right handed but use my cutlery back-to-front (fork in my right hand, knife in my left)
7.My party trick is the ability to ride a unicycle (if there is one available at the party, lol)
