Had a fabulously silly girly time with my sort of sister in law.
We were just down right silly, we missed the flight there, slept through check out. Just down right bad ass.
We went bar hopping. Kissed tranny’s (this actually happened) and bitched.
We shopped, we walked, we talked.
AND UNFORTUNATELY, I DID NOT COME HOME TO MY HOUSE.
We have STILL not moved in.
Today, I have some free time and I was thinking about hitting the shops and getting house ideas and looking for roman blinds. But I just can’t bring myself to do it. It will just be a waste. I need to move in too see what I want and what I feel.
I am just so gutted.
. . . . .
I saw some beautiful items in Melbourne, some beautiful and painfully expensive items!
I didn’t buy anything, besides a silver sherwood tray from vinnys for the low low price of $20, a pair of knickers and an exfoliator.
We paid for checked baggage on the way back, but the things I was interested in, I wasn’t going to trust to be handled by other people.
And besides, the things I wanted and took my breath away were thousands and thousands of dollars and I didn’t have that.
I want this rug!
Mind the silhouettes. I definitely want a rug like this for the living room. Muted pastel colours in a traditional patter and 100% NZ Wool please.
This was $4400 but had 20% off.
arrrrghh I think that price is reasonable, but I need a KITCHEN.
I also LOVE these
There was 2 of them hanging over a dining table. They were just petite and stunning! I also have a thing for emerald green.
Something in my house will need to be emerald green.
Yep, that reads $2100 for the pair, which I guess is ok…… lighting is sooo expensive.
I also went to an antique chandelier shop and I fell head over heels for this 1960′s Italian chandelier. It was also a pair. Perfect for my LIVING ROOM.
I inquire about the price. $5500 for them… ouch.
It was stunning though. I can’t get them out of my head. It was fairly modern and not stuffy and chintzy like other chandeliers.
I have tried to hit up the ebay to no avail.
Sooooo in terms of lighting for my house. I think I will just live with the baton holders and the single globe until I am a millionaire.
Sounds like a great plan… no?
These are another item that I LOVED!!!!!!!!!!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
If you know me, You will know i have an absolute infatuation with anything Fungi!
I love MUSHROOMS/TOADSTOOLS
I first spotted these in the Willow store in the GPO. I was like, “Far out, they are amazing. Must have” They also had nice artwork on the walls.
Then I walk into this shop and right down the back, there they were. FATE. With a $2600 price tag. OUCHHHHH
$2600 for a set of 3. My pic is a bit terrible, but they are amazing. Carved out of a single tree trunk. The underside was not overlooked either. All those delicious folds and ridges were expertly carved.
They would be sensational in my babies bedroom (NOT PREGNANT) or in the hallway to greet you.
Or just anywhere. They are FABULOUS.
$2600…. hmm very steep for just an ornamental object, but a single tree trunk, hand carved and so much care and detail. I mean, I get it. But I don’t have $2600
Sooooo… I thought my Melbourne trip might help bring me clarity. It just cemented that idea, that if I want the type of furnished home I desire, I need to be a gazillionaire.
(at the very least, I know that there is objects here in Aus, that I love, but yes, they come with a hefty price)
. . . . . .
I also got to see my cousins!!! Some of them!
One of them is managing Kumo Izakaya, a Japanese Restaurant. We went there and had a fabulous time!
I highly recommend you go there. My other cousin, his big sister is the consultant Sommelier there. (We didn’t get to see here though, she was working in the Yarra Valley)
For a starter that just presented itself on our table we had walnuts in sugar and black tea! AMAZING.
The whole meal was delicious and the cocktails were yum!
I love Japanese food and I am dieing to go back to Japan. Did you see the Jetstar 2 for 1 sale? I was this close.
I am never going to furnish my house, if I keep going on holidays. Naw!
