Can't decide between the teapot and the teacup.
PS I'm really really impressed with tumblr. Impressed enough that I almost want to move over to it... but I'd hate to leave my little old blogspot behind. I've tested it out with visual melodies (which hasn't been updated all that recently, unfortunately) and it works a treat. I'm getting itchy feet with this layout... maybe I just need a change of scenery (again). Maybe just a change of direction, too. I don't know what to do... thoughts?
I don't usually like taking photos of people, especially if I don't know them and without their permission... but this super-stylish dear I spotted in Melbourne was too good to be true. Bright pink trench, leopard print hat, white tights and a wicker basket. Amazing. I hope when I reach that age I will just as fashionable.

Oh goodness. The past few weeks have been busy, busy, busy. Assignments, exams, working, doing stuff for the band... but now I'm free for a week or so before winter school starts. (Yes, uni in the holidays. Fun times.)
Anyway, Melbourne was brilliant, I had the best time. I spent a fair amount of it just doing what I do best - wandering around in circles looking at this, going to that, ducking down an alley, stopping for a coffee - with a camera (or three) in tow at all times. I took my Grandpa's old 35mm with me and (hopefully) took all the best shots with that, but I still have to get the film developed.
Melbourne in 25 words or less: Federation Square, Journal, bruschetta, Sticky, shops, alleys, Swensk, Don't Come, photographs, laughs, Section 8, Brunswick St, galleries, galleries, galleries, pizza, cocktails, Deerhunter, vintage, coffee, Horse Bazaar ♥
But seriously, if I lived in Melbourne I would be even more stressed than I am now. So much to do! So little time! My entire pay would go on lattes in cafes before I even got around to spending it on art and clothes and books and zines and other crafty little things. Not to mention food!
Adelaide is just-right sized, methinks. (PS we have a zine shop now! Get there! 23 Peel St - although I'm not sure if it's still open or not... it was kinda a trial thing/kinda not... try anyway!)

I was lucky enough to review Coco Avant Chanel during the week. It was lovely! But of course, I am completely in awe of Audrey Tautou, so I would probably say that about anything she is in.
My poor little blog is a bit neglected at the moment, partly due to the fact that my internet is down at home, and partly because I'm struggling to find the motivation. But I am going to Melbourne next week, so hopefully that will spark something. Cafes, shopping, wandering, Deerhunter... yay! All tips would be greatly appreciated, it's been a while since I've been!
