Well due to a stubborn computer that has chucked a tantrum I am somewhat late in posting my Friday Fable. It is amazing how you are restricted when your computer needs to go to the hostpital. Thankfully with reading a few forums my dear mac didn't need to go into surgury,
Can you believe we have little more than a month and it will be Christmas??!! The Christmas Party caper started for myself and Lord Fable this weekend with a trek to Bendigo on Sunday. We made an impromptu decision to leave Saturday morning and drive over the border to Moama to visit Lord Fable's parents newly renovated Holiday home.
I have not been to this part of Victoria for nearly 15 years and it was great to go through some quaint little towns. Although we were on a time line I did come across some beauties.
Just past Heathcote, we went past another creek. But this one we had to stop for. Lady's Creek. Perfect!
The weather was against us, with drizzly rain but 30 mins from the border we went through a very small town called Elmore. Here we stopped at Elmore Old Wares. The store was full or antique and vintage goodies. Currently I am on a mission to find some old scalloped edged mirror, I was hopefull when well walked in but unfortunatly I was not in luck. See below some of the pieces that caught my eye.
Elmore Home Wares
They had so many great plates here and even better prices. If I had any bare walls left in the palace I would have bought some and did something like this.....
So we made it to Moama and we settled in and drank wine on the deck with great views of the Murray. I watched the man in the neighbouring unit feed a Kookaburra with a spoon! They come and visit the same time every day for a feed. I really should have taken a photo but I was so amazed by it.
Sunday morning we made our way to my Aunt's place in Bendigo for lunch and then made for the two hour drive home. A long drive but I discovered cruise control as I drove home in Lord Fables Car. OMG it is amazing! Great Weekend!
I have a slight obsession at the moment. NEON. It is a crazy obsession, theyare so fun and wearing the colours makes me smile. These are my latest neon obsessions:
1. Roses from Camberwell market: I went here on the weekend and picked up these gorgeous coral roses. Lady Fable rule #3 always have fresh cut flowers in the house! 2. Pantone Neon brights - I work with the Pantone Fashion and Home colour pallete every day and have loved the new range of nylon/neon brights that they have just realeased. 3.Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Collide - get it now at Myer 4. Inside Out Magazine - Nov/December issue. How awesome is this cover, I was drawn to it. 5. Triwa watch - I am never going to afford a J12 Chanel.......so I purchased myself a Triwa "Brasco" watch in sunrise from Twisted Time. 6 & 7 These are my favourite scarves at the moment (of course with a hint of neon loveliness). The best accessory to lift an outfit. These were both purchased from H&M last year. For those who don't know me I don't leave the house most days with out wearing a scarf, I wear them all year round.
Last week end I went to visit one of my Fair Lady's and her month old little princess. I was delivering a bunch of beautiful Peonies for a friend for her. Once in the vase and in its rightful spot I was inspired to take these shots.

This time of year is perfect for peonies and these beauties just looked lovely, I couldn't resist taking these shots.
