Why I eyes ya'

Just saw this hysterical collage exhibition "Why I Eyes Ya'" by Tai Snaith and Lucy James at Craft Victoria in Flinders Lane inspired by this equally hysterical you tube video called "Oh Long Johnson".
You sort of do have to be a crazy cat person to get the best out of it, but a love of collage and cleverly chopped up and mismatched images will be enough to enjoy this show.
It unexpectedly ties in with my own little June pinboard which has a tropical monkey theme to counteract the vicious Melbourne winter.(click on the bottom pineapple photo to read the blurb- it's pretty amazing- they say 'appetites will boomerang' like it's a good thing...?).

Hmmmmm....well, no.

Stunning mushrooms

I bought this amazing selection of beautiful mushrooms at the markets yesterday and now I'm not sure if I can eat them...but I think a hot pan, some thyme, butter, garlic and truffle oil could make them even more beautiful...perhaps a splash of white wine...hmmm?

Coffee and sleep

Love this poster from Handz Restyle etsy shop spotted on How About Orange.I often drag myself out of the house in the dark and cold without breakfast...but NOT without coffee. I think my world would end if I tried to do that, it's the only enjoyable thing about getting out of bed at 7am...

I would like to be, please... (Seen on Style Files).

or here would work for me too...
