What do you love?

What’s your style? Lots of people say they don’t know …. that’s ok! Most peeps know what they don’t like so that’s a good starting point. From stating what you can’t stand you often are able to figure out what you do like even if it doesn’t get a specific style name! Who wants to live in a categorised box anyway!

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.

Autumn in Coledale & Thirroul

So on a recent visit to Coledale and Thirroul on the NSW South Coast we stopped for refreshments and a spot of sourcing. The piccies below are what we saw ... but there is so much more to spy.

The first stop was at Cocoon on Lawrence Hargrave Drive at Coledale. It is closed monday and tuesday so avoid the disappointment and venture here on the other days or you can always phone Karen on 0411 480 365 for an appointment .  Cocoon sell the unusual, eclectic and primitive which includes furniture, gifts & recycled glass
