Some very talented peeps!

I've had the greatest week!! Friday was my 26th Birthday! I had an amazing day with my wonderful and beautiful friends.

I received a really lovely present from my new friends Kylie and Lluis that I just had to share with you all.

Lluis is a super talented artist! And he gave me one of his very own creations!
It's a little story titled 'The grasshopper & the mole'
All the drawings were drawn by his genius hands and gosh it really made me feel special to receive one hot off the press!

I'd like to share it and his wonderful blog & website with you!

Here's some photos of my super cute hand made picture book!

Lluis and his super fabulous girlfriend Kylie who blogs at The Curio Cabinet have markets selling their art, and some crazy amazing vintage goodies...

Here's their stall today at Thread Den in North Melbourne!

THE COAT THE COAT!!! I think I need it.

And here's some other bits and pieces of Lluis' works that I was quite impressed by...

Naturally, as there is a caravan in it!

Pinup space-girl? Heck yes!!

Trish!! Thank you SO SO much for the lovely words about Lluis & I - You're too kind!!

Do you want to try on the coat before I list it on ebay? hehe... How's that for a sales pitch? ;)

Ms V: I am originally from P-town. You will love Melbourne, and the crafty markets.. but in all honesty, after being here for 3 years there really is no place like Perth for op shopping.. Oh how I miss it! Melbourne gets raided & they're onto "retro" here! You should check out the Lost & Found market in Collingwood though, lots of cool stuff there.
Hope you have a fun holiday!
