Melbourne was about ....

Spending time with cousins
Totem
A little bit of sight seeing ..... and
Vintage buttons at Camberwell markets!
I think I'm living in entirely the wrong city. We had such a good time, the food, the shopping, the art!

Eeek - I know that cafe in the top pic. Not too far from my place at all. Glad you had fun.

I love Melbourne to bits - for all those reasons - we went recently and spent lots of times in cafes and trying not to shop our socks off

I thought the same thing about Melbourne when I was there a couple of months ago. So much to see and do! And buy!

I moved to Melb from Syd 7 yrs ago- it is definately THE city. Much easier to get around, it doesn't take all day to get from one side of the city to the other!

Congratulations on your doll. It must have been a thrill to see her in exhibition.

Oh my god! I was just about to comment on the button photo (I read your post last week and it inspired me to go to Camberwell Market, so thanks for that!) Anyway, I saw the photo of the cafe and... that's my street and my local!

I hope you had a good weekend, maybe I even bumped into you with my little curly haired wee man!
