Ella was keen to have her desk chair recovered to better suit her room. It's an old IKEA chair that used to be red and black. Some time ago, I spray painted it white,and was quite happy with how it turned out..... but we couldn't reconcile the red upholstery in a mint, watermelon and blue decor!
The base upholstery is now White vinyl for the clean, ladylike look.....
But at the moment, we're going with green/blue faux fur for that accidental kind of Monsters Inc look
We checked into a hotel in the city on the afternoon of Friday, December 11.... exactly 2 hours after finishing up at school for the year! OUr mini break began with cocktails at Misty, a bar on Hosier Lane..... one of Melbourne's top graffitti laneways.
You can't see it that well in this picture, but the bars have been crochet-bombed.
No more students' dirty looks!
We ate at this Melbourne restaurant..... smoked brisket for days!!! So yum. The whole hipster meat thing is such a thing here. Neither of us are complaining, though. We enjoyed yummy sides of slaw and Mac & Cheese and finished with this amazing Lemon Meringue Pie,.... all washed down with fine beer and wine.
And the next morning.... we sipped elegant Beroccas to help with our fuzzy heads before heading out for breakfast and Christmas shopping.
Hometown: Victoria, BC, Canada, Home Away from Home: Melbourne, Australia
I'm a Canadian living in Australia. I've recently completed some Post Graduate work at the VCA (Victorian College of the Arts -- University of Melbourne) and at LaTrobe University. I'm staying on in Australia and will continue to experience life in this lucky country. I'll make some theatre, teach some kids and become a better surfer. I love the water and hate spiders.
