Out and about..
A blue sky, a new friend from Tokyo and 3 markets to explore in Sydney was all i needed to get me out on Saturday morning.. first stop was the tasty growers market. Held on the first Saturday of each month it is the perfect place to grab a coffee and sample some of the best produce around. I particularly enjoyed the sesame dressing i sampled with a chunk of cucumber. (heaps of cheese - but a little early for me). If you can't walk there, apparently a stamp from the Sydney Morning Herald info stand gets you $10 parking at Star City. Now THAT would've been handy to know!
next it was Surry Hills.. before the market we popped into Shelf life.. Ethical design for the home...
lovely displays, beautiful ceramics..
an oasis indeed... perfect to tie in with the Surry Hills market - the first Saturday of the month..
Talk to the wind and sun had been busy carving her super duper little match box stamps.. these are sooo perfect for creating your own 'thank yous' and gift wrapping..
After a bit of lunch.. we viewed "Blue" at the Object gallery..
9 artists, one colour.. two of my favourites:
The Blues: the dogs of doom, Brenda Factor 2010
Shotgun II, Mel Robson.
It was quite a visual feast of a day .. ending with a 'perk'me up at Max Brenners..
Have you tried this? the ceramic holder has a tealight candle under the metal cup.. you add the choc chips into the milk and voila! drink up the goodness through the metal spoon/straw.. sometimes genius is also useful..
