Bits

  • I came across this gorgeous little paper goods website called Papermash, run by Lynne from Tea For Joy, and as the shop has just opened she is holding a competition where you could win a years worth of stationery. Obviously, this is totally up my alley. I'm so on that. Here are some of my favourite things from her little shoppe:


    1. Lace tape 2. Paris Polaroid postcards 3. Library birthday card

  • Imgfave is a picture sharing website like Ffffound, minus the invite only policy. Very interesting browsing.

  • Cute girls in glasses.

  • As you're probably aware, director John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Home Alone) sadly passed away this week. My friend Paige sent me the link to the website of a movie made recently called "Don't You Forget About Me" and I'm really interested to see what it's like.

  • I thought this was interesting (found here);



  • Poster pocket plants;



  • This skirt made my day - Sherwood Forest Mini Skirt by Paul Smith. If only money grew on trees like the ones on this skirt;



  • Here's a improbable hypothetical outfit I made at Polyvore that I thought I'd share, woo leggings and cardigans;



  • This set depicting characters from Roald Dahl novels brought back some memories;


    ^ George's Marvelous Medicine.

  • This is a photo of my friend Skye, taken by my friend Benjamin Fraser McKenzie (who you might possibly recall from Australian Idol?). I think it's really beautiful. His photos are gorgeous;



  • I've seen this on a few blogs lately, but I thought I'd post it here. An interesting exercise in consistency;



  • I thought these business cards for Glammer Eductation Institute of Hair Design were clever (via YOU MIGHT FIND YOURSELF);



  • Oh my god, I NEED this block of post-its!



  • This Melbourne woman makes the most amazing shoes;



  • I like Leafcutter Design's 'World's Smallest Postal Service".

  • This chalkboard/calendar is wonderful (via Tea For Joy)



  • Strange Maps, cute;


Today C, our friend 'T-Bone' and I went to see the Newcastle Jets play the Wellington Pheonix. Overall it was a really good game. We won, which is always a nice extra. Afterwards we got takeaway (my favourite laksa) and went to Film Society, where we saw a French/Lebanese film called 'Caramel' which was subtle, but it had some really moving moments, I liked it.

Now I'm gonna drink some tea and relax :) C has become obsessed with this game called Frozen Bubble and I think it's driving him crazy, quite literally. His eyes have almost turned into the little Frozen Bubble balls.

Look for jobs for Centrelink (I do actually apply for the jobs, I just know I won't get them).

Hanging out with Jackson on Wednesday.
