A grainy recap of life this past month...

considering rag rugs

admiring pretty wire baskets (buckets? bins?)

terrible light, soz, but trying on tops in Country Road. Liked this top. Didn't like its price tag. I'll just have to sew one for this coming summer

chocolate sardines! each great on their own, even better combined!

Agatha hanging out

fabric shopping. this was during The Fabric Store's 50% off sale, so silk suddenly became soooo affordable!

LOVED this green rayon by Lisa Ho. alas, as per tag, remained $35 per metre. maybe next time.

ended up getting a couple of metres of this peachy pink crepe. done nothing with it yet, but envisioning a drapey dress for summer

contemplating growing out my fringe and getting hair cut this short next time

i attended a protest march! my father has been locked out (with 75 others) from the power station he works at. i went along because i never have attended one before (and probably never will again) 

i did get a free t-shirt out of it though! it reads ENERGY UNAUSTRALIA. also pictured are the first pair of runners i've owned in five years! please don't be fooled by exercise gear get-up, as after this was taken, i had a cup of tea and a chocolate biscuit and read my book on the couch. dead comfy, i have to say!

found this lovely little book at the uni library the other day. russian in a wonderfully folky and idealised way. shame reality isn't quite like this

and this is generally how i roll - couch, book, cat. 

I voted! Early. Lesson learned last election when i was in a line for over an hour. 

Dinner with a friend. Yumo!

Lovely flowers, lovely tea (and cup), horrible study. 

My new garden!

Some 'Pet Grass', parsley, rosemary and some flowering succulent (is it just me, or are some succulents really freaky looking??)

Maiden hair fern, another (soon to be) flowering succulent and mint! 
I'm really growing up now, what with being a responsible pet AND plant owner!


  1.'re making me miss the Fabric Store...not their prices but their collection that is! I lived around the corner when I was in Melb, very dangerous.

    1. haha small world! did you like living in Fitzroy? i agree with what you are saying about the prices, but i think that is just australia in general. Did you ever go to Tesutti fabric store (in the city) when you lived here? So many lovely fabrics but SOOOO expensive!! So in comparison, i often see The Fabric Store as being quite cheap! I think i need to come to the US just to go fabric shopping (well, among other things)

    2. Oh hang on, i presumed you were American! Is this correct or are you an Australian living in the US?? (Sorry, don't want to be nosy!!)

  2. I love the photos of your cat, mine does the exact same thing with paper bags! There is a The Fabric Store in Auckland but I haven't been yet. Judging by the prices I will definitely be waiting for a sale. :)
