Happy Friday!



Happy Friday!
You know that Dr.Jones has started to call me 'Lady Rider' because I'm Lady Melbourne and I ride around on my bike most days. She thinks its funny, I actually don't mind it, kinda cute I guess.
I gave myself the day off today and cycled to my local Savers where I picked up these gorgeous crystal ornaments. I believe it's a set with a salt dish, pepper dish, butter dish and miniature vase. I can't walk past things like this, I have somewhat of an obsession with making my surroundings as beautiful as possible. I'll even spend my last $5 on something incidental that will make me happy to look at, knowing I won't be paid for days.
Silly or sensible? I wonder what you would all spend your last $5 on hhhmmm?!

my last $5? A magazine...though I'd probably have to sweet talk the check out boy into giving me a discount, given that there's so few for $5 or under. =P

Happy Friday!

You're like a sweet little birdy, attracted to all things sparkly and beautiful.

My last five dollars? Probably white chocolate. Please.

Oh, I love those clear shadows on your pic! I wish we have some sunshine, but it is cloudy and cold winter here.

What gorgeous crystal ornaments! Love them :)

I think I would spend my last $5 on an iced chocolate.. Or if it were cold a hot chocolate! Hell, anything chocolate would be good :)

Augh I too have a silly obsession with little crystal bowls. You can see several of them (I think) in my Spaces posts. I have about ten and one crystal goblet I use as a pen holder because I couldn't find a vase wide enough. Why? I don't know, I just have magpie eyes. I have paid way too much for my little crystal knick-knacks, and would definitely spend my last $5 on one! xo

Your ornaments are so pretty and nothing beats fresh flowers I think.

I spent yesterday's last $5 on a scarf from my friend's vintage shop. It is brown and cream and pink - like neapolitan ice cream! - and has little daisies all over it. Too cute, I couldn't resist.

those flowers are beautiful! I just stole some blooms from my neighbour, haha, whoops! (well.. they were hanging over my fence...).

I quite often spend my last $5 at Diva.. usually a ridiculously sized ring ;)

Looks like a perfect Melbourne day:) Flowers bring smiles to my lips!
I'm heading to Melbourne in Feb... Any recomendations for cafes, shops, vintage etc? Who better to ask than Lady Melbourne herself...

I too am a secret crystal collector. I am always eyeing off my friends' parents' collections. If I had a crystal tableware set, I'd use it everyday! To hell with lead poisoning :)
