This is an image from Arthur's Circus, a lovely store in North Melbourne which I recently visited. They specialise in vintage toys and handmade goods. You're guaranteed to find something you'll fall in love with in their store. Natalie and Nicholas run the store, which is named after their three year old son Arthur. The whole experience is very fun. I'm itching to get back there.

Last night I was invited to a Sydney crafty blogger get together in Newtown. Evening outings are few and far between these days so it's always nice to take a break and head out for some adult conversation. It turned out to be a real treat because I was fortunate enough to meet these amazing ladies:
Suzy from Floating world
Bianca from Sadie and Lance and the Toy Society.
Bettina of BKH Design (website and blog)
Belinda from Taylor Street
Jade from My Art is my outlet
and a long time fave, Belinda, from Tutti Frutti.

I've spent every second of Ziya's nap time today jumping from blog to blog checking out all of the wondrful things they've been up to. It's terribly inspiring....which is why I should get off here and make hay while the sun to speak. Enjoy your weekend. xoxo
