This morning I finally decided to check out The Cannery in Rosebery, which is right beside the amazing Koskela and The School of Megan Morton. After I grabbed a bacon butty and coffee, I was delighted to discover that on premises was the stunning Horses Birthday Fete.

A trip to the Entertainment Quarter Village Markets was about to change all that, as I wandered through this extravaganza of fresh produce, flowers and random wares. It was the start of a blossoming romance!

creative finds | this weekend’s top five

1. String of IKEA solar lights = pop of colour!
This string of solar lights was as cheap as chips and contrasts nicely against the bamboo fence in my outdoor entertaining area. I’m going to be using them in a few weeks at a party I am having to ring in Summer in Australia – bring it on!
