Honk If You Love To...


Melbourne is the hub of cool isn't it? I mean, Sydney, yes it's beautiful, we've got a glittering harbour, we've got the Harbour Bridge, we've got big tolls, we've got the Opera House, we've got blondes, blondes, blondes. But when it comes to creative hubs - I think Melbourne.

It was a pleasant surprise to log into my inbox one fine Spring day and find an email that perpetuated this thought.

Tomorrow night there's a new gallery opening. And it's a gallery with a difference - it's also a badge making lounge.

Make your own badges, rent a badge machine, view and buy street art from local and interstate artists or order custom merch like buttons, bumper stickers and ethically made garments.

Bumper stickers? Say what? Seriously cool stuff, huh? I'd make my own 'peep peep if you love pottymouthmama' or something like that. No, I really would. Can you imagine all two of us driving about with those on the bumpers? Yeah ok I need to go back to the drawing board.. Badges. Now there's a great idea. I love badges. If you go, please will you make me a badge?

If you're in the 'hood, go tomorrow night and check it out for me:

Friday 14th November
6pm onwards

Stay Human Gallery
Upstairs, 368 bridge rd, richmond
weds-sat 12-6, stayhuman.com.au

Totally unrelated image of a totally cute rabbit I found on etsy, and then forgot where it was. If you find it, please do let me know. I might need to buy him.

Just to pull my foot out of my mouth. A while ago I rambled something about maybe meeting one day because I am going to Perth. I just assumed you were there because your sister is. Please don't think I'm a loon. I will run away sheepishly now.

Yep, I have openly declared my love of Melbourne on my blog. If only it had our (Sydney) weather, I would love to be living there.
Given I am now on the Northern outer reaches of Sydney, I guess I can bag it a little...

That sounds like lots of fun. If I happen to make it I will make you a badge for sure.

Love the rabbit.

I am telling you - you need to move or at least visit. Squeeze yourself into a return postage envelope at least and soak up a bit of Mebourney goodness.

I'm with you on Melbourne, and I grew up in Sydney... I just wish I could bring the good parts of Melbourne up to ther nth coast... or bring my beaches and weather down to melb.
I'll find that etsy seller for you. I even think they may on my eharts list... they sell luscious pears too? Am I right? ceramic pears...

I have Melbourne and Sydney envy, being here at the Gold Coast! We have the blondes and beaches and, um, and, Sea World? Culturally the Gold Coast is a black hole - sorry to any disagreeing Coasties, but being a Brissy girl, I can notice the HUGE difference now I am at the Gold Coast. Will put myself in an envelope too... :)
