friends // sophie @ finders keepers market

28 Jun 2010

on the weekend, i caught up with my friend sophie (hospitals for ghosts) and we walked along the river to the powerhouse for food nibbles, then drove (we couldn't quite face the walk!) to the finders keepers market at the old museum. we spent too much money on food and brooches, but it was a lovely day! sophie's one of my favourite people to photograph too because... well... i think the photos speak for themselves.

i also used pugly pixel's latest free download, scallop medallions! katrina often posts free clip art to download and i adore them all. you'll probably see me using them a lot in my graphics (when i can be bothered to make them look pretty).

paris i love you by truth be told

jessica hyde is a melbourne friend and she's, well, an artist! she draws and creates all these beautiful designs and then... prints them onto stationary! she runs her own little label, truth be told. i'm a stationary nut and i've been a stationary hoarder my whole life. when i was little i even collected hotel stationery. anyway, jess makes gorgeous, elegant prints, cards, stationery, all while holding down a full time job in graphics in architecture. she's a busy girl!

design // the selby: lyndsay and fitzhugh

14 Jun 2010

my old housemate alerted me to todd selby's website featuring peoples' houses, the selby, shortly after it started in 2008 and i've been following it avidly ever since. here's some of my favourite shots from brooklyn, new york in the latest post. owners lyndsay and fitzhugh are a jewellery designer and furniture designer respectively, and also work to build and decorate artistic homes with the brooklyn home company.

and a little blurb about todd selby just in case you haven't heard of him before...

Todd Selby is a portrait, interiors, and fashion photographer and illustrator. His project The Selby offers an insider’s view of creative individuals in their personal spaces with an artist's eye for detail. The Selby began in June 2008 as a website,, where Todd posted photo shoots he did of his friends in their homes. Requests quickly began coming in daily from viewers all over the world who wanted their homes to be featured on the site. The Selby’s website became so popular—with up to 35,000 unique visitors daily—that within months, top companies from around the world began asking to collaborate.
These joint projects have included a large ad campaign and web project with Nike 6.0, a solo show at colette, an international ad campaign for Habitat, work for the New York Times T Magazine, and frequent contributions to Vogue Paris and Architectural Digest France.

photographer // max wanger

i adore max wanger's photography. i never really thought about weddings until friends started getting married and talking about photographers and i realised wedding photography can be incredible and not just the standard black and white bridal-party-in-a-line kind of stuff.

here's a bunch of my favourite tracks at the moment. i'm seeing two door cinema club and angus & julia stone in the coming months too! i've posted some extra angus & julia stone stuff since i especially love them at the moment. they're a brother/sister australian band and make such beautiful, sweet (and often times sad) music.

P.S. i love the pugly pixel freebies!

life // lazy sunday afternoon

2 Jun 2010

after work on sunday i went to see my friend sing with carry nation at the powerhouse. we went to high school with jessie and she's seriously talented and nice. she moved to melbourne at the start of the year and recently supported indie darling lisa mitchell. i think they'd compliment each other well as they have similar style, they're both so sweet and just that little bit awkward on stage (jessie also does a killer cover of teardrops by womack and womack).

so after being delighted by whimiscal girly music for half an hour, we hung out on the balcony overlooking the river and sampled some of the delicious tapas at bar alto. seen here are arancini (risotto balls), zucchini fritters & calamari, and the staple chips & aioli.
