I'm way over due with posts so I'm going to give you a quick summary of what went down the past two weeks. ( Yes. it does seem like I last posted two weeks ago. This is unacceptable!)
I managed to sneakily get a trade pass for the Furnitex
(as well as decoration+design
ALL FOR FREEE!!! xD) trade fair at the Melbourne Exhibition building. It was a MASSIVE exhibition and when i got to about 12/13ths of the fair, I gave up. I collected a shit load of flyers and business cards and its gonna take me a while to go through all of these (You'll find out why I'm hoarding all these business cards soon enough.)
It was really good however, and there were so many pretty things I wanted to take home (These trade fair stalls usually have a minimum order of about $1000. Unfortunately, I don't have this kind of money) There wasn't any photography allowed in the exhibition center, which was a pity and extremely annoying because I had to write every thing down instead. Also, it made me forget to take a photo of my outfit. (Yes, I'm blaming it on the fair's policy. haha)
I did manage to score this illustration print of a tortoise!! I can't wait to stick this in a limewashed or black wooden frame!
In other, non related news, I had alphabet pasta two weekends ago! I've been searching EVERYWHERE for these babies. Blame it on the childhood memories of eating alphabet pasta in mushroom soup. Delish! I made them in normal pasta sauce cause I'm not sure how Matt would react to pasta in mushroom soup. It didn't turn out as tasty and the pasta became all mushy it looked like cous cous which kinda defeated the purpose of having alphabet pasta in the first place. BUT not to fear cause I bought more-than-1 number of bags of it in case something like this happens.
