Welcome to Beautiful To Behold.
My name is Michelle and – like you – I love beautiful things.
Especially creative, artistic, classic things – each a work of art in its own fashion.
I started this website to bring my love of beautiful things to the women of Australia.
It was also started to satisfy my own creative urges.
Like most of us, I work a day job and it’s a pretty uncreative environment.
Invoices, shipping, chasing outstanding payments, etc. All pretty boring…
I missed my creative side – the one that started and ran a successful nursery/craft shop when I was in my twenties, living in my small home town in rural WA.
The one that loves flower arrangement, patchwork quilting, sewing and gardening.
So, I finally decided to do something about it, and Beautiful To Behold (great name suggestion by my wonderful partner!) was born.
I’m starting by selling pre-loved patchwork quilts.
If you’ve never created a patchwork quilt before, it’s usually a mammoth task to complete it.
It doesn’t take hours, it takes weeks – even months (!) to complete the unique work of art that is a patchwork quilt.
I started quilting back in my early 20s – it’s a very popular hobby for women in country towns – and have never lost my love for it.
So, quilts will be my first product line to be sold.
