almost immediately after clicking ‘submit assignment’ this afternoon my stomach started rumbling, and my legs started to get itchy for a walk…funny how you don’t notice these things when you can’t, yet as soon as you can they’re all that you think about…
needless to say i’m off for a walk to get some food. maybe i’ll take my camera – it’s a beautiful day – and perhaps even a bag…it’s hard rubbish week in my suburb at the moment, and i spied some terracotta pots down the road with my name on them!
on a side note, i noticed this light bulb whilst walking home last night from an appointment that i was 6 days, 23 hours and 55 minutes early for…yes, i was late and early.
i stumbled upon this sam shmith exhibition a couple of weeks ago at arc one.
it was a lovely little find, and equally nice to see that so many of the pictures had sold (and believe me, if i’d had the money i would have bought one myself: enlarged and simply framed these images were truly spectacular).
i must admit that the people that i visited the gallery with – both painters just visiting to look at the gallery space – were somewhat less impressed: ‘he’s just taken a photo out of a plane window!’, they said.
maybe, but that’s the biggest mistake when it comes to any form of art / design / self expression: it’s all very well thinking ‘i could do that’, but you didn’t.
more respect for the idea, i say..!
i stumbled upon these shoes by the horse at dos primos whilst away down the coast for the weekend (who knew that this shop even existed? not i, but i was most pleasantly surprised).
alas the hermine shoes that i wanted were sold out in my size – so i bought these happy socks instead – but i might have to go a-hunting for them in melbourne. i think they might be the perfect shoe / boot for the upcoming winter.

i had a lovely weekend with the (extended) family down the coast.
too much chocolate was consumed, i barely took any photos, i read NONE of my articles for uni and i didn’t even go to the beach but i don’t regret a thing.
(except for the anzac biscuits!)
it is safe to say that i have been looking forward to this five-day easter / anzac weekend for a very long time.
this week has been incredibly stressful, but already i feel more relaxed in anticipation of leaving for the coast in the morning.
easter is my favourite time of the year to go to the beach. the rough waves toss up innumerable shells, sea glass and other treasures just ripe for the picking, and the clear, sunny days lead in to nights cool enough to spend sitting around a bonfire.
so very lucky.
i hope your easter is similarly comforting and joyous. have a good one.

it’s the pink that really makes this.

not going to lie: i might be using easter as an excuse to post pictures of rabbits (and i snuck in a bear picture because he’s clearly the easter bear: check out his brooch!)
but really, how CUTE are these guys?! i can’t even imagine how much time and effort these must have taken; but completely worth it.
these are all handmade by erika at fox and owl: respect.
any family and friends reading: i will forgo the chocolate this easter if i can have one of these instead…
this is how that scene from close encounters of the third kind would have looked if i’d directed it…awesome.

winter scarves are being worn more and more frequently around here…
i freakin’ love rabbits…
