Friday Friends - Dusty Diva's Part 1

My next series of Friday Friends focuses on Dusty Diva's and some of the special friendships I have forged through DUST(Down Under Street Team).
This week I would love to introduce you to Kim of SavageKitten.Etsy.Com.

Kim and I found we had much in common. A love of indi films like Donnie Darko, classic films like Breakfast at Tiffanys, a love of French Music and the music of artists such as Beck and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

As with many others in the DUST team, Kim has supported me in many ways and vice versa through purchases, ETSY treasuries, spreading the facebook love .........
I love Kim's creations - simple boho elegance ! I also love the beautiful sketches created by this lovely lady.
