Yummy Melbourne

Just returned from a whirlwind trip to lovely lovely Melbourne with my 13 year old daughter .... so here is a snapshot summary of our adventures ....caught up with Nikki at Brunswick was great to see her studio and the engine room of her shop ......
Saw the fabulous and amazing and so much fun musical "Hairspray"
Also saw "West Side Story" at the Regent Theatre ....

The "RockWiz" fans will recognise this place ....
Next stop - Glen Waverley - Frou Frou Fabrics - hmmm - yum!
Now Haigh's chocolates aren't a Melbourne thing, but since we don't have them in Newcastle, they are worthy of a mention ....

AbbaWorld  - for a trip down memory lane - totally amazing - do you remember wishing that YOU were in ABBA? Do you remember these costumes?

And should you need roller skates I can recommend a great shop ....
There is only so much walking a gal can do - in Brunswick I also purchased fabric at Rathdowne Remnants, but there were many other places on my list (thanks Sharon for the list!) that remain on my list .... another time maybe??

On another note .... read about our first Brown Owls meeting here ......


  1. So lovely to see you both!! Glad you made it home safe and sound.... and singing Hairspray songs.

  2. Wow, you did so many amazing things!! My girls & I loved Abba World, did you download using your ticket? It's a lot of fun. Love the roller skates, how cool. You must be thrilled to have fitted in so many great things into your trip. Have a great week xo

  3. Which day did you see Hairspray? We saw it on Wednesday night. I loved it!

  4. Glad you had a fantastic trip and so much achieved. Now where is the fabric :)

  5. Sounds like a fabulous trip! ooh, going by your rugged-up outfit in your photo it looks much colder and wintery-er when you were there than for my trip ;) we did get some sunshine and warmth for this weekend, yay!
    Haigh's chocolates, mmm divine...!
