Some photos of my stay in Melbourne - sadly Tuesday's Melbourne Cup race day photos didn't come out very well due to all the rain, boo!

I really swooned when I saw this shadeless lamp hanging in all it’s flowery glory. It was in a quirky little cafĂ© and I just had to ask if I could take a picture. The green wall below the row of pictureless frames (all along the wall) was pretty neat too.

A trip to Melbourne is never complete without seeing lots of cool street art (okay, graffiti but it's very clever) and 'holes' in the wall and inviting window displays.

Lastly this vintage car is so wonderful. I love almost all vintage cars and can never understand why manufacturers can’t make the same effort they used to. I think all cars on the road these days look the same!

Have a lovely day.


  1. I call it "street art" too as its so amazing! The lamp and the car are fantastic!
