Melbourne


What a wonderful city... We had such a great time in Melbourne. My brother's wedding was just gorgeous, we caught up with friends and even had time to do a few things about the place... like visit the Mark It market. Thanks to Kirsty and everyone else who suggested going here – it was fabulous :) and it has to be admitted that, yes, I've contributed substantially to the Victorian economy.


Most exciting find was new-to-me Jen Hall Designs. Loved her brooches and earrings. Also thanks to Skulk of Foxes who let me take the photo below of their amazing stall.


No trip would, of course, be complete without a random favourite graffittied sign. Watch your step... and your manners :)


Favourite purchase... acrylic daisy chain necklace from Dick and Dora on my mannequin below with a dress I'm currently working on.


Oh and thanks Melbourne for being so deliciously chilly and rainy... (no, I'm serious)... I've returned to a hot and humid Brisbane and seriously considering moving to Melbourne :)

When you have fun, in spite of rain and chilly weather, it has been a good day. Love that daisy necklace and dress in progress.

Melbourne has that effect on me too. I love it and also seem to enjoy contributing to their economy. LOVE the daisy necklace!
