My best friend lives in the big smoke.
Yep - Melbourne...
Sometimes it seems like another galaxy away. & she's like Snuffy, or Mr Snuffalupagas as he were (in the olden days), to those who have never had the pleasure to meet her! But you talk on the phone, it feels as though you're only across town, not across an ocean.

I absolutely love seaside style, and these stunning pieces from Anthrapology's table ware range are on my mothers day wish list... I often sing to my darling little boy about the seaside (Here is the sea, the wavy sea. Here is a boat- and here is me...) because it, and he, inspire me everyday xxx

Did anyone catch Ben Quilty (and the Maggots) on ABC's Artscape? If I ever win tattslotto the first thing I'd do is try to get my hands on a piece of his... Not that I ever buy a ticket! He does these amazing paintings that are like butterflied- yep thats its technical term (or not)... I'm sure you'd remember making pictures like it in primary school, where you smear paint onto one side of a page folded in half, sandwich the page, apply pressure pushing the paint out to the edges and when you open it you have a mirrored image, or a butterflied effect? Well he makes pictures that seem to be made like that, but portraits, and the detail under the paint... They're amazing. Its the most excited I've been about art in ages.

Sometimes the weather can provide the perfect backdrop for a new window...
After close last Saturday, while I scouted around the shop for props to do a new window display, the rain was drizzling away outside. Hurrying to get home, Easter window half out, I made a mercy phone call to the trusty husband to deliver two chairs when I spied my umbrella. Standing there all alone in the silver florist bucket we use on rainy days at the front door... Voila!
Thankyou me & amber for the gorgeous new cushions, and to April for bringing a new season to our store. Hope you like it as much as I do xxx
