Moscow ceramic mug
I had been eyeing this off at Melbourne Central for a little while. There are a variety of these mugs for sale at a little kiosk, each with a sweet little illustration of a famous international landmark, such as the Opera House and Chichen Itza. I have been obsessed with Russia and have been wanting to visit the gorgeous St Basil’s Cathedral ever since reading Crime and Punishment five or so years ago. So when I saw the St Basil’s mug, I was in love. But, being the minimalist I am, I thought to myself, “Well, I don’t really need it…” Husband heard my story and went sneaking around and surprised me with it. And I totally love it. It’s the best gift I’ve received in a while. It is very well insulated, and stops me spilling coffee all over the carpet, as is the norm when I carry my coffee the whole 20 metres from the kitchenette to my office at work. Most of all, it reminds me everyday of somewhere I’d rather be and keeps my dreams in tow.
A Skulk of Foxes hardwood folk fox necklace
A few months ago I dragged Alex off to a local craft fair, which, as anticipated, was amazing and inspirational. I passed an amazing stall called A Skulk of Foxes, which specialised in cute woodland-inspired jewellery and accessories. I spotted the most gorgeous hummingbird brooch, as well as a charming folk fox necklace. Not having any cash on us, I took a business card for future reference and checked their website a week or so later. Now, I am not a jewellery lover, but I pretty much wanted everything from their online shop. I ended up purchasing this phenomenal hardwood folk fox necklace, which I absolutely adore and want to wear every day.
