A Thursday in October

Simon & I both had today off together so had to run a few errands.  We started off at 7.30am at the Flower Markets to buy some plants for our country house.  I heard rumours of some dwarf hydrangeas (actually one of my client's last week bought them for her home and i fell inlove!).

So we bought a lifetime supply! They were grown in Queensland and after our purchase, there are only about 15 left.  The flower grower said they were a trial this season so should be seeing them around a lot more next Spring!

We also got 20 dwarf snapdragons in pinks, purples & whites.  Lucky we have someone to plant them for us! (We're city folk afterall!)

And one "normal" hygreanea, beginning to sprout.  I thought it looked so beautiful so had to get it.

On the way back, we popped in to a lovely friend's place to pick up some vintage props I bought off her... 4 vintage china plates, old wire birdcage and a Shelley wooden crate. 

By mid-morning, we went to Marrickville to visit the amazing Cornersmith Cafe. Simon did their signage a few months ago so we wanted to go back for a meal.

I got a strawberry, beetroot & honey milkshake (amazing!) and we shared some Ginger Bread with ricotta & honey.  Topped with sunflower seeds and edible flowers, the photo doesn't quite capture how amazing it looked (or tasted!).

We then headed to Waterloo for some art supplies.  Spotted this gorgeous canvas artwork being mounted on wood.

Stroll around our neighbourhood with our pug Knuckles and stumbled on this weathered gold leaf house name & number... So pretty at dusk!

Hometime meant editing some blog/writing work I am now doing for a lovely client while Simon created this sign commissioned for a magazine editorial.

Our new business cards also arrived in the mail (finally) for Ashdown & Bee and they look amazing in real life! They have curved corners on matt silky card with pops of bright yellow. Lovely! 

Off to Old Bar (near Taree) tomorrow for an extra long weekend and the cutest boy's 2nd birthday...
