Heaven is....

....the Rose St Artists market.

I was like a kid in a candy store. Almost everything I laid eyes on extracted little squeals of delight. There were sooo many cool and unique things that Jess nearly had to hold me back. In the end I settled on a pair of light blue rectangular earrings and a mustard-yellow scarf.

I'm going through a bit of a phase with the mustard-yellow, which I tend to do with colours. Everything I see in that colour I want to add to my bower-bird collection. I also have a particular shade of green, and a kind of blue that really takes my fancy at the moment. I particularly like all these colours letter-pressed against a white background. Eeeeeeee! (that's my little squeal of delight).

I hadn't been shopping in Fitzroy for a while and I'd forgotten how much cool stuff there is over that way. I think I'll have to go back in the not-too-distant future. I'm quite lucky that Jess has pretty much the same taste as me, so we both drool over the same things like funky jewellery, pretty paper (LOVE stationery shops) and attractive packaging. Brunswick St is a haven for all these thing.

In other news, I finished the 'baguette' bag. It turned out really well and I'm quite chuffed with it. I think my sewing skills are improving! Pictures to come....


  1. My goodness! What a trip!

    Hey, do you know you just won a Spec Case Kit on my blog??

  2. Oops - I was commenting on the other post. Love ROse St market, too...

  3. That's so exciting! I never win anything! This has somewhat made up for not winning the $90million Auslotto jackpot the other day.


  4. Photos! We need photos of these gorgeous purchases! I want to drool over them too :-)


Go on, don't be shy!
