come sad, leave happy!

If only all cafes could guarantee such a promise!

Taking photos of open and closed signs was my little photographic assignment I had given myself when overseas last year and this one is the winner! Photographed while lurking down Portobello Road in London. I hope to show some more over the coming week but I can guarantee they won't beat this one.

I'm still fighting my urge to adopt for myself my very own sausage dog. Does anyone know of a good daschund breeder in Melbourne?!

Book cover designs are my weakness so when I discovered these two penguin themed books at the op shop today I couldn't leave without them. And while conveniently on the subject of penguins and book covers I also came across these (pictured below) new penguin classics pattern-inspired book covers. You can find more information about them here and you can admire some more beautiful book covers here!

Psst! If you haven't already heard of Shelfari, may I recommend you take a peek here!

This poster is my personal favourite from the five poster designs inspired by The Great Depression. You can view the others and download your favourite here!

shadow heart

Whilst walking down the street today minding my own business, lo and behold a heart shadow appeared on the footpath from the flickered shade of the trees above. I can spot them hearts from a mile away! : )

photos for flowers

Today I photographed some lifestyle shots of a friends florist shop to be used for her a new website and in return I received by surprise a flower heart bouquet : )

ways we can help

My heart goes out to all those who have been so devastatingly affected by the recent Victorian bushfires. Pip has been keeping updates with ways in which we can all contribute and help those who have lost so much. You may also like to give a donation to the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009.
