Introduction Hi I'm Josie, some people call me Phoenix and I'm a Post-grad archaeology student and museum worker. I'm trying to find some creativity in this manufactured world. Trying to recall the elegance of bygone days and capture an antique charm. I'm trying to make my surroundings and life as beautiful as possible, on a very tight budget.
