supporting the Queensland economy with dreamy shopping . . .
Oh boy, why did we ever leave Queensland & come home to the rain & freezing cold Canberra?? We had such a lovely holiday & did lots of dreamy shopping. First stop, like always, was beautiful Simone from Beach Vintage blog's shop Just Plain Gorgeous in Bulimba (just around from fancy Kangaroo Point) it's where the beautiful people live.
I picked up a pretty pink kaftan & delicious blue dress in there + some fabric, bliss!!
Further along Oxford Street is a cute shop called Green Glass - they have the cafe by the park in this post. Really lovely goodies & service to boot.
Of course, a treat for the children to have some stationery fun in the school holidays involves a trip to Kikki-K, i think we went to the Chermside store?? I love this flag stamp!!
Next time i'm in Brisbane, i'm checking out this shop, Frankie & the Fox, i was forbidden to enter by my husband, he doesn't understand my constant need for fashion eye candy.
So just a quick snap on our way past. The sign alone screams my kind of store.
So farewell beautiful blue skies & sunshiney Queensland Winter. I shouldn't complain, i've spent 7 Winters of my life in Darwin cruising along at 30C every day, no chance of rain, just that holiday feeling.
Canberra is technically the sunniest city in Australia, i must admit, we have many Winter days which look like stunning Summer, it's just 2C outside & you're wearing gloves, so i'm just playing spoilt. The best thing about Queensland is most positively definitely my husband, i miss him, sigh. Have happy weeks everyone, love Posie
