Blue and white ceramics

Behold the gorgeousness of Sue Binns' blue and white pottery.  Unfortunately it's currently only available in the UK. If I ever visit the UK again I am going to track down this luscious pottery and bring home a piece or two...

Love: Tiled walls

A very recent obsession of mine...tiled walls. Two lovely local examples (click on the pics for a closer look):

Ernest V Cafe @ 432 Glenhuntly Road, Elsternwick (I had a fabulous middle eastern style winter salad there a couple of weeks ago):

A newish cafe, Pour Kids, in Winter Street, Malvern - my husband was working nearby recently and we popped in for a coffee. The black & white tiled wall looks great with the bright yellow coffee machine:

Do you know of any other lovely examples to share?

Shop: Montreux pop-up house

Montreux, a great homewares store in High Street, Prahran, isn't just having a pop-up shop, it's having a whole pop-up house for one week only!  I'm going to drop in tomorrow afternoon to get a fix of all things antique, vintage and industrial.

Place: Wellington

Last week I spent a few rainy days working in Wellington - that didn't stop me from exploring...up to the Botanical Gardens in the Wellington Cable Car, a walk through the beautiful gardens (it was worth walking in the pouring rain just to see the most magnificent magnolia tree I've ever seen in full bloom). An added bonus: I had the gardens all to myself! Then I meandered down Tinakori Road, and browsed through Millwood Gallery whereupon I purchased the fabulously illustrated Wellington Book:

And now I'm back home in similarly wet and windy Melbourne!

Shop: Going Going Green

Problem: I need some new pots and plants for my front verandah. Solution: Drop by Going Going Green someday pretty soon (a great inner city nursery). Problem: Which gorgeous pots do I choose? The green ones below are winning the race so far.

Other great stuff at Going Going Green that's worth a look:
