Hangin out with Buddha and Andy...

A few favorites around my house...
Budai (Fat Buddha): Rub his belly for good luck, wealth and prosperity
 one of the first things I bought when I came to Melbourne last year. Special little man. I loved how he seemed so calm, because my life at the time was so hectic!
 Andy Warhol Special Edition Dom Perignon 2002 bottles, are perfect vases for some dried flowers.

"People should fall in love with their eyes closed. Just close your eyes. Don’t look and it’s magic"

A day in Healesville

A while back I had a chance to go to a town about an hour east of Melbourne called Healesville. It is located in the Yarra Valley region, where many Australian wines are made. The end of Autumn was a beautiful time of the year to go, and there were a few trees still bright orange with color. We had lunch at the Healesville Hotel which was amazing. This is a perfect day trip but there are many little cottages to rent out for the weekend too.

My aussie boy.
The fireplace adorned with little American pumpkins at the hotel,
was a perfect way to stay warm.
