A.C. Journal

One of my loveliest friends has started her own fashion blog, A.C. Journal. Ana-Cecilia has had a wealth fashion experience from running her own successful label to co-designing clothing for the Genki label in Melbourne. Her new blog shares her inspiration and love of fashion as well as little discoveries she has found along the way.

You may remember the photos I took of Ana-Cecilia's house here, she certainly has a way with interiors and fashion! Welcome to blogland AC!

summer harvest

Before Christmas we planted some vegetable plants and this week we have started to see some of our Summer harvest. Four strawberries (already eaten with this morning's bircher), some magnificent looking carrots and some red chillies for the next hot meal. I did have some nice red tomatoes to show you also but the birds got to them before I had a chance to pick them from the vine. I think our next harvest will be in a week.

hello sailor

Hello, I'm back! There were some unexpected busy couple of weeks there that stole my blogging time, that coupled with a recent lull in creative energy I have guiltily neglected poor little Three Buttons. I hope this week I can get back into the swing of things and drop by to say hello a little more often!

Let me start my blogging week by telling you about my sailor boy ceramic. Last year the super lovely Pip from Meet me at Mikes gave me my now favourite money box, a ceramic 'made in japan' sailor boy. Too precious to put money into ofcourse! Having always wondered it's design origin I was surprised to find, just last week, the exact money box in a much loved book.

What I discovered was that the sailor boy was designed by Rune Naito, a 1960's Japanese illustrator. This left me to wonder where in Pip's vintage travels did she find such a treasure? I always venture to flea markets, op shops and garage sales with daydreamed expectations to find such beauties but most times I leave empty handed and disappointed. How about you? What is your ultimate and most daydreamed op shop, market, garage sale find?

I've always wanted to find that $5 Blythe doll at a garage sale, you know the one? The one who's friend knows a friend who found one once, for $2 in perfect condition.
