Left to right, top to bottom:

1. I was playing around with an iPhoneography app called, Marblecam.  The original photo is a paper collage on the wall at the Bridge Hotel in Richmond.  [You can view it on my Instagram profile.]

2. My grandparents gave me Rachel Khoo’s beautiful cookbook, ‘The Little Paris Kitchen‘ for my birthday this year.  I did a little article on Rachel Khoo and her little Parisian kitchen in March 2011. [Click on the link here to read the post]

3. Afternoon tea at home with Grandma’s ‘Roslyn’ china tea cups.  I received lots of comments on my beautiful tea cosy – which was a gift from my friend, Angelina, who is very talented with the wool + needles.

4. A recent purchase of some ombre ramekins inspired my meal of chicken, bacon and mushroom pies.  You can find the recipe here – it’s Nigella’s and it’s sooo delicious.

5. I foolishly chose to wear my pink legs out in Melbourne’s wet weather.  My shoes were soaking by the time I got to the office….boo!

6. Picked up a bunch of Kale from my local markets and had some fun styling them for the dinner table. In the end I went with a single stem in an old passata bottle.

7. I love ‘Banksy’ art and I found this fabulous stencilled artwork at the Bridge Hotel in Richmond.  “Be Free!”

8. This is a Photojojo project that I participated on via Instagram – “Tintype” photography. [Tintypes are photos shot onto metal plates that have been coated in light-sensitive emulsion- very popular in the 1800s]

9. My OPI “You Rock-apulco Red” talons
