Love on a Cup

So if I was 'more into fashion' would I have known that Vittoria had collaborated with 8 Australian Fashion Designers to design 11 stunning take-away coffe cups!? Would I? I feel as if I 'missed out'! And this piece of information only came my way as I deviated from my favourite coffee shop in town (they went to Bali for RnR) & went to the local bakery. I ordered coffee and as I climbed back in the car my son says "you've got a tiger on your cup" - I reply "What are you saying Max?" I hadn't even noticed!

Pick you favourite - we love the dark florals, the cheetah and the flamingoes. Below are what I missed out on .... you may have missed them too.

NEXT year I will be waiting for 2015 designs and will be the first not the last to blog about them .... aahhh coffee tastes better wrapped in colour!

Treasures in a Gelato Shop ...

Tucked away in the rear rooms of Il Locale Gelato in Berry is a boutique of handmade funky clothes, polymer clay jewellery and screen printed cushions. The designs are unique, the combination interesting and the people are lovely.
