let's hear it for new york...

"One hand in the air for the big city/Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty/No place in the world that can compare/Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah//In New York/Concrete jungle where dreams are made of/There's nothing you can't do/Now you're in New York/These streets will make you feel brand new/Big lights will inspire you/Lets Hear it for New York//"
Empire State of Mind  - Sewell, Hunte, Carter, Robinson, Keyes, Keys, Shuckburgh

everyone loves a bargain...

what. a. morning.
we decided to hit the black & spiro sale. you know, black & spiro, only the most lovely design & interiors store in brisbane?? goodness there were a lot of people, and even more bargains! a LOT of self control was used this morning, and in the end i came home with an armful of material (lovely material!), some babushka dolls (!!) and this awesome stool...

i think it has found it's home beside my lovely tasmanian oak sideboard, by MOMA New York in a Bag, and my beloved Tram Roll Tea Towel that I won over at Daily Imprint!

what do you think?? you will laugh when i say i paid 2 (yes, TWO) dollars for it!! it's been a productive weekend already!

The Adventure :: Chicago

chicago.: you were cold. very cold. this was our first taste of america : iced tea and buffalo wings. we met an aussie at willow creek. we wandered your streets, we looked up at your skyscrapers. you surprised us, with your subtle elegance. we loved our short time with you... we'll be back one day!

The Adventure :: in pictures

it's tough coming home from a long holiday, non? you've seen so many amazing things. you've spent all that money. it's nice to sleep in your own bed again, but there's still bags to unpack, mail to sort. And photos... all those thousands of photos to look through.

its taken me a while, but i thought i might share a few highlights of our trip...
aka The Adventure

it all started with the planes, which is where i realised how far away Australia really is from the rest of the world... oh i thought i was ready! but have you ever met any one who is truly ready for the horror that is a long haul flight?? i'm sad to admit the "barf" bag was my best friend on that trip...

what's your horror flight story??
