The Mondoshawan's Thanksgiving...

Inspired by Bakerella's Turkey Cake Pops, I decided to make some to bring to my friend's house for Thanksgiving for her kids to eat for dessert!!

My first Turkey Cake Pops attempt!

And, inspired from one of my favourite movies...

The Mondoshawan's celebrate Thanksgiving ;)

Happy Thanksgiving to those in America!

Ave Maria

Hallelujah! I've discovered Mother Maria - a boutique eco clothing range by Australian designer Katie Gannon inspired by op shopping, vintage magazines, and retro patterns. And the best thing is that she is based in my home town although her clothes are stocked all around Australia.

I discovered her gorgeous little shopfront just the other day. Which is a bit slack on my behalf - obviously I haven't walked in my local little township for a while!

In addition to the Mother Maria clothing range the shop is full of all sorts of locally made delights. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in my neck of the woods, in fact I'm going today and propose to indulge in a little bit of retail therapy.

Etsy and Olive Oil...

A few weeks ago, I was out shopping with a friend and we discovered this store called Oil and Vinegar.  The week after, my husband and I went to check it out together to sample and choose some dips and oils.  We both love the simplicity of dipping fresh bread into some tasty olive oil, with or without additions like dukka.  We tried quite a variety of flavours, and purchased some rosemary cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, and it has been absolutely delicious with some crusty sour dough bread!

I love this hand painted oil bottle by Yevgenia on Etsy with the pretty red cyclamen.  I like this as a different way to use the olive oil!

Another lovely item from Yevgenia is this ceramic tea or coffee cup which is a great ecofriendly way to have your morning cuppa!

Anyway, I hope you are all having a great day!  I have the afternoon off from work, so I'm off to enjoy a cuppa tea outside in this beautiful crisp weather, cook a vegetarian curry for tea, and snack on fresh bread and my rosemary olive oil!  Mmmm! :)

OT Awareness!

You'll have to bear with me for this post - but as an Occupational Therapist, I thought this video was awesome!   I came across this youtube video from another OT friend on facebook.  This is such a brilliantly done video, explaining all the amazing things that an Occupational Therapist actually does!!  This was done for Occupational Therapy week in Australia from the 24th to the 30th of October!

Did you know we did all of that?  Now - "consider yourself aware" :)

What a cutie

This is such a cute little hand made felt tea cosy from ArgyleSt on Etsy. I think I would even wear it as a hat!

These are made by flock of teacosy who is a certified tea sommelier - so you know these will keep your tea at the perfect temperature - in a very stylish way.

Whimsical Winter

 Ah, the Northern Hemisphere Winter is truly here.  Whilst I know that it IS November, the Australian inside me keeps thinking it is May or June.  Hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner when it feels so cold!

It is, however, a lovely change, and I am enjoying all things winter - hot chocolates, new winter jackets, and this cute Etsy print of a whimsical little birdie sitting on an apple branch!

Have a wonderful week, wherever you are in the world!

Doesn't this delightful sculpture from Anthropologie just take you up, up and away to some wonderful place far, far away?
