The Best of Health in Melbourne

My work is now stocked in a great new shop in Melbourne, Rude Health.
Owner Julia describes her emporium as being full of "polka dot fifties dresses, crocheted alien birds, silk high-waisted undies, Little Red Riding Hood capes, stripy one-piece pyjamas, paperboy woollen caps and felt lungs in jars. Every item is sweatshop-free and made in Australia."

Sounds great to me.

A Bear Request

I was asked by my friend to make a costume for her 1 year old's birthday party. Her grandfather is turning 60 on the same day, and their names start with C and P. So, a C and P fancy dress party - therefore, here is a Care Bear for the guest of honour to wear (and I don't mean Grandpa).

If you want to see more photos, there are some here.

It's that time again...

This week, I have four items with no connection whatsoever. I just want them all. For the cuteness, for the loveliness, for the texture, for the divine colours.

It's a Line Up

Juanita, Paloma, Rosita, Pancho and Pepito - some of my little horsey friends are off for sale in a lovely shop called Retrospections in Cammeray, Sydney. Along with some Supermarket Chic Bags, and Lord and Lady Bibs, they will be keeping company with some of the best... well, I almost want to say curation, of vintage homewares, books, beautiful accessories, baby items, and general loveliness that I have seen in quite a while.

The shop itself is also gorgeous. A real feast for the eyes.

If you're in the area, it would really be remiss of you not to visit!

Wishlist Wednesday

With the Aussie dollar on the Up this week, I have been seriously considering a lot of items that I have had my eye on for a while, but may have previously been out of reach. These little beauties are all looking very accessible all of a sudden...

Oh yeah, that's right, I went on holidays.

I can't believe that last week I was in Malaysia. You know those holidays when you come home and feel like you need a holiday? That's how I feel. But I took some lovely shots of the place. And yes, I found a sewing shop... couldn't help myself!

Wishlist Wednesday

Man, this week is mental. What I really wish for is more time, a car, a cleaning lady, and a magical cookbook so I can produce good, healthy meals in 2 minutes (that's all I have to spare, whilst my iron heats up).

*DISCLAIMER* In no way or form am I championing marshmallows as healthy.

Wishlist Wednesday

Today we have a sweater for the cold, a card for an anniversary and a wallet for my (lack of) money. Yes Jon, this is the card I was going to buy before we decided on the no card rule!
