Market Prizes

I came home with quite a few prized items after my visit to the Camberwell Sunday Markets

…including the Times Square soundtrack - I haven't seen this film, but I'm desperate to after giving this a few spins. Unfortunately a well informed friend tells me that it's impossible to find a copy here in Melbourne :(

I love autobiographies, so I couldn't go past this one of Mia Farrow's. I'm particularly interested in reading about her time spent studying under the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in India. The group of 60's hipsters she was with included the Beatles, who wrote the song Dear Prudence about Farrow's sister who was so fanatical that she spent the whole trip holed up in her room meditating.

The Treasury of Good Food Ideas, or more like: the treasury of food that haz cheez in it.

Hello Kitty

Karin Shiragami's Covert Kitty series captures lurking neighbourhood cats - "we can see you!"

From Camberwell to Mordialloc

The Camberwell Sunday Market is one of the best second hand and vintage markets in Melbourne, and I visited yesterday for only the second time - I can't believe I haven't made it there more often! As you can see I came away laden with bargains, which I will share in another post to come soon.

Spotted a Kylie Minogue book alongside a Maori doll. I was heartened to see these icons of Australia and Aotearoa nestled together.

After quite a few hours of fossicking we set off home via the seaside town of Mordialloc. I'm wearing one of my best scores of the day - the green duffel coat (am quite excited about this).

A Bit More Royally Good

I love these colourful plates, seen on Where the Lovely Things Are. As a response to all the Royal Wedding hullaballoo Orange: The Feed asked illustrator Owen Davey to create his own designs commemorating the little moments in our lives that would normally go uncelebrated.

Click here for much, much more platey amazingness.

And, while we're on the subject, this mug made me LOL :)
