It’s such a beautiful spring day in Melbourne today, Jesse and I spent it breakfasting and wandering round our local neighbourhood. We came across this incredible secret garden, hidden between two terrace houses.
I was in heaven!

We went to Elceed on Queensberry St for breakfast, I had the broadbean and pea mash with poached egg, Jesse had an amazing looking mushroom bruschetta with goats cheese and candied prosciutto. I’ve turned into one of those people who takes food pics – kill me now! It was sooooo good though I had to!
I’m loving that all the flowers are blooming. There are so many beautiful terrace houses in our area and we are lucky enough to live in a pretty nice one. I’m still a sucker for terrace houses as there are none in Brisbane!

I’ve been resourceful this week and have been making accessories again. In anticipation for Spring (5 days to go!) I’ve been embracing nature and flora and making floral wreaths from some vintage flowers and leaves I bought in the beginning of the year from our local op shop.
This is the outfit I wore to my interview with Di of Clara Fox. My interview will actually be a guest post on Vintage Shops Australia‘s blog, and should be up early this week so stay tuned!
I had a wild one last night at our house party, which actually turned into an enormous night! I’ve never seen so many people in one house before! It was so much fun but I wasn’t feeling the best today, let me tell you!
Here are some shots from the party, I didn’t take many unfortunately, I was a bit too pre-occupied!
I wore my 1930′s lace and chiffon gown.
