Melbourne wrap up + street art

My final Melbourne post! (I think) On Sunday morning a few of us walked up the road to the Rose Street Markets.
Probably the highlight for me, other than a few jewellery and ceramic stalls was the aerosol art that lined parts the street.The piece above was my favourite. So colourful!

Steph and I then caught a tram into town whilst some of the others went to a day spa. We had a delicious lunch at Laurent, a beautiful patisserie and boulangerie at the end of a laneway near Little Collins Street.
I enjoyed a baked veg and fetta tart. The cake selection was divine and so tempting, but I was super strong.


Union Lane, between Bourke Street Mall and Little Collins Streets had the most amazing street art.
I had to share a few pics....

I thought this lily was so unusual.

Aren't they pretty?

Ahh, the end of our trip. Of course by the time we got to the airport the airlines had decided to delay our flight, so we got home later than expected, very tired. Goodness only knows how many kilometres we walked, but I did wear a hole in the sole of my good pair of shoes!
Have a lovely Friday :)
ps how are you guys findingt he new Blogger format? At the moment I'm wondering if there's a way to convert it back as it doesn't want to work properly on my iTouch or work computer. Boo hiss!


  1. I think the lily looks great but yes unusual. Your format comes up fine on my laptop but quite narrow with a lot of space either side. Have a great weekend. xx

  2. Hi Sarah, I love the Melbourne street art. It sounds like despite how much you walked (we're always the same in Melbourne) you had a pretty great time.
    Hope Molly is still improving, and I would love to meet up at the dog beach some time with our two ragamuffins. I'm been meaning to invite you three down to the hut some time too, I'm sure Molly would love to explore the block too.

  3. looks like a fun trip! I would love to visit Melbourne someday! I am getting used to the new format.. finally. : ) have a great weekend.

  4. Wow that street art is absolutely fabulous, thanks for showing us.

  5. What a nice trip you had - lucky girl :) I'm slowly adjusting to the new Interface, some things are still driving me batty though. On the top right of my dashboard is a 'cog' button - under that is Old Interface - perhaps you can switch back? I had to install Google Chrome because I couldn't get some things to work on either computer here either... grrrr!! x

  6. Sounds like you had a lot of fun Sarah.
    I wish people wouldn't tag the street art!
    I must already be on the new interface because I haven't noticed any difference. Really sometimes I just don't have a clue!!


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
