How cute is this felt sandwich? It's making me feel hungry and craft, all at the same time!
Dee, you should totally get sandwich artist on this DIY. Found at myrtleandeunice- they have even posted a tutorial for this delicious-ness here. They remind me of us...Melbourne based ladies who bond over the weekend and love crafty cute things. I think I've found another daily blog read :)
Remember I posted a poster with all these cute cartoon organ characters? Kay stumbled upon the actual website, iheartgut.com where they sell plush toy versions of these organs! So awesome...these would have made learning human anatomy just a tad more enjoyable for Kay...I want the heart organ toy...just so i can say to people who touch it..."hey, quit playing games with my heart"
Having been in beautiful romantic Paris for the last five days, I have come to a realization. The Parisians love their food and they really love their macarons. Perhaps they were made more famous by the likes of Kursten Dunst in Marie Antoinette courtesy of the stylings of Sofia Coppola but there are macarons sold everywhere!
The famous Laduree takes the cake (excuse the pun) with regards to the sheer range of flavours and the opulent packaging. At 5euro per macaron, they better be amazing too!
I had to know what the hype was about so after an amazing stroll through the chateau in Versailles and a peruse of Marie Antoinettes little holiday abode, I did a sacreligious thing and bought a 0.90euro chocolate macaron at Macdonalds!
Well!? Quite nice actually. I thought it'd be a lot more intense in almond flavour (which I don't like) and full of air. But it was soft and chewy with a creamy not too sweet chocolate cream centred filling.
charli put in some lovely eyelash extensions recently and it's even tempted me - the least likely to wear makeup of all three of us i'm sure!
Soomi Park was girl who also gave her eyelashes a 'renovation' - this invention via Fashion Technology pushes the boundaries of the extent women will go to in order to achieve those elusive 'big eyes'.
they look very glare-y but she doesn't seem phased by the lights when they flash!
who knows - if you had to attend a rave party, this could be the way to go! bizarre huh?
It was a hot Sunday in Melbourne - so blisteringly hot that I drove from church using the tips of my fingers until the air conditioning finally decided to blast some cold air into the car.
Then an oasis in the suburbs appeared - Porgie and Mr Jones - a cool little breakie cafe wedged between other small businesses on a mini shopping strip.
Upshot: Typical breakie fare at typical cafe prices. Had the banana bread (about $15) with mascarpone cheese and a berry compote (sadly, it was less 'bread', more cake). Coffee looked good - but c'mon it was a bit hot for coffee?
Also had a glance at the courtyard at the back - white interiors baby - even cooler.
the boy taught me about bokeh only very recently (despite having done a photography elective in highschool and owning my SLR for quite a long time - i'd never heard of it - what were they teaching us i know!).
i couldn't remember the terminology when he initially explained it to me and i insisted on referring to it as those 'little blurry balls' - very nice effect indeed!
and look at what other sweet wonders these little blurry balls can be transfigured into!? Heart shapes and indeed any shape you so desire. imagine the possibilities.
this diy tutorial thanks to photojojo...you guys are the best.
i have a very craft ready Godmother and she is always sewing up amazing costumes for her whole family. if my cousins caught a whiff of these costumes i don't know what would happen but this sort of thing is right up there with some of her creations.
there is something about the shape of a molar tooth that lends itself so fittingly to very cute toys and crafts.
unfortunately i am not a dentist and unfortunately there are no equally 'cute' doctor shaped icons.
but my friend sus is a dentist and i always think how blessed she is to have excuses to own tooth shaped items! i once bought her a tooth shaped jar (a 'sweet' tooth) and i have also seen large molar shaped stools to sit on and even glowing lamps for the floor.
now if she decides to get crafty, here's a molar knitted toy featured on Craftzine to add to her dental practice toy box for the kiddie patients!
it's getting warmer (sort of) in Melbourne and that means picnic weather! hooray!
the amazing foodie team at Sunday Suppers recently featured a spread on a picnic by the waters with delicious recipes to boot and even lovely decor ideas such as old suitcases and salt and pepper shakers refashioned as flower vases. very inspiring!
