Oliver Peoples 2011 Collection.

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Devendra Banhart and Rebecca Schwartz for Oliver Peoples...Yowza. Can't speak. So fine. In love.

Me...Grow Up? Never.

I want this tee from Mini and Maximus so bad. Do you think they'll have it in my size? Chances are...not good.

The best gift I've ever given.

Sunday, January 9, 2011

My Son and I bought the 'Bourke Street Bakery' (by Paul Allam and David McGuinness) book for my Husband for Father's Day, and let me just say it's the best thing we've ever given him. We have had beautiful fresh bread on multiple occasions, as well as croissants, lemon curd tarts and grissini. We are looking forward to further exploration into the sweets section, but can't complain about what we've had so far. If I'd realised I was married to a brilliant baker, I would have bought the book ages ago!


I've just put some wedding invitations I've been working on for a friend in the post! I was a little anxious as I watched them disappear into the red post box, but relieved that they are on their way. The wedding will be held on my friends lovely property in western NSW, so the old 'Waltzing Matilda' stamps tie in well with the location and style of the wedding – I'm sure they'll also stand out amongst other mail as well!

It's a sign.

Santa let me buy this wonderful, spectacular 'Pharmacy' sign for Christmas (from the lovely Newspaper Taxi in Newtown). I feel like the luckiest girl alive. The letters are cut from ply wood and my Dad says it was probably made sometime around the 1950s. Every time I look at it I get a warm fuzzy feeling – what a glorious piece of typography. My only dilemma is where to hang it.

Factory Lane.

Anooke and I love an evening stroll past the old factory close to our parents house. It saddens us that it's glorious windows have been broken, and dream about converting the whole thing into huge, sunny apartments.

Goodbye No. 13.

Almost a month ago we said goodbye to our No. 13 unit. It was bittersweet – I hate change, but loved the thought of having our own house with a backyard. I will miss No. 13's sunny disposition and 1970s tiles.
