Coffee is a lot more than just a drink; it’s something happening. Not as in hip, but like an event, a place to be, but not like a location, but like somewhere within yourself. It gives you time, but not actual hours or minutes, but a chance to be, like be yourself, and have a second cup.

Can I offer you a cup of coffee-flavoured beverine? 
Yes, I take it grey with creamium.

That’s the lovely Kat. Local Barista. She’s made my coffee for years in various coffee shops on the Northern Beaches. It’s so fun to have company in the shop and ridiculous to have someone to say to,  can I have a coffee? and it’s like the best coffee. Leftfield Old Fox. Love it. Really smooth. Not bitter. Yep like Scarface I’m gettin high on my own supply.
Come in if you can. If you say you read this you can have a free coffee, ruby chai, organic tea. Whatever.
I’d be stoked. Cheers Sandy 🙂

blue MOTHERS DAY CANDLE CUP

So it’s possible if I actually want to sell more of these for Mother’s Day that I should have done this post at least a week ago, but ‘as a busy Mum’ [an advertising sales pitch that makes me cringe however true it may be, juggling 2 jobs right now, #eek but #good, I am better when I am busy, decisions are easier] obviously I didn’t get it done. Till now.

But there’s still plenty of time for local shoppers and loads more where these came from. Watch this space.

I did get this done. An ad in the local Pittwater Life magazine. #yay

vintage pretty bone china tea cup candles

And then there’s these…Pretty nice huh?
Bonus cups. An added extra to these lovely vintage fine bone china tea cups and saucers: locally made, hand poured Coconut scented soy wax candles. #yum

And once it’s burned, what remains is not some bland container destined for landfill but a beautiful, functional, one-off collectable object.

This is the gift that does keep on giving. Recycling and repurposing in fine form.
And clichés in abundance…

Happy Mother’s Day ladies. May your cup runneth over.

 

 

You’re such a lovely cup
Why don’t cha fill me up
All these reasons too hard to explain
So, I’ll drink you up my dear
We got it all right here
Here is now, and now is where I want to be

So hot right now…
Two more of the dreamy Ouchflower macramé hangers I have in stock at Urban Rustic. Handmade by Melbourne artist Phipplia Taylor. I love the story behind the name Ouchflower. Pippa’s young son’s description of her succulents…

So this kind of hurt; I had the perfect blue vintage ceramic pot for the Peach hanger but I dropped it before I even got one photo. In my favourite baby blue too. Was a lovely longer oval shape which sits in the hangers nicely.

Upset, I doubt I’ll find another. Annoyed at my clumsiness. Spiky little chards EVERYWHERE.
Ouch, ouch and more ouch!
But the substitute bowl is pretty smokin’ too. Don’t you think? I’m happy with it.
Smoked glass is so retro but so modern. Like the hangers. Noticed Country Road brought out some smokey glassware this year. I’ve got tons of the real stuff, watch this space…

The hangers are $120 each and I’ll throw in the pot if you like.
Smoke it up. Yeah baby.

In the words of Ned Flanders
…get out the crayolas and colour me Tickled Pink…
to have some so-gorgeous-it-hurts macramé hangers in stock handmade by über sharp Melbourne artist Phillipa Taylor of Ouchflower.

YELLOW Ouchflower macrame hanger plant

Pippa creates dip dyed, to die for hangers, tassels and wall hangings. You don’t need a retro pad either, they suit any modern bohemian plant-loving home. These hangers twist the whole kind of ug seventies craft into groovy hipster beachy chic. So hot right now.

Available in Yellow, Teal, White and Peach at URBAN RUSTIC Newport. But limited numbers, so get in quick.

It’s a great read, if I do say so myself. Which I do.  And an awesome blog with a good rep. Style without the snobbery is the mantra.
To misquote Liz Lemon you should go to there.

Such a buzz.
Happy Friday people, super smiley face
