I really love Lisa and Edward's cute characters and bold use of colours. Head over to the Lisa Jones Studio webshop to browse their lovely selection of items, and check out their website and blog for further details. I'm signing off for the weekend now - hope you have a good one!

I have some ideas on ways to improve and add to this blog, which I’m sure I will eventually get around to (as I try to familiarise myself with all of this techie web stuff), but in the meantime please feel free to leave a comment or get in contact if you have any feedback, words of wisdom or news that you think I might like to hear about.
This post also signifies another event in my life – the Englishman and I have now been living in Melbourne for six months. Adjusting to life back in Australia has been harder than I imagined, and while I miss being in the UK, I'm slowly settling into some sort of normalcy and routine. I'm sure others who have been in a similar situation understand the mixed emotions. But as time passes I'm becoming more and more familiar with this diverse city, and I'm looking forward to the warmer months ahead (and making use of my patio!). To me, Melbourne is all about great coffee, yummy food, cute houses, citrus trees in people's gardens and lovely independent design shops, book shops and craft/handmade fairs, among many other things...
Speaking of all things Melbourne, these fantastic photographs by local photographer and blogger Jacinta Moore sum up Melbourne much better than I ever could in words. I think they're just lovely. Check out her Etsy shop and blog to take a look through rest of her portfolio of images, and enjoy the virtual tour.

I love my Diana camera, but don't go out as often as I'd like to take photos (excuses, excuses...). In fact, I've been incredibly lazy on the photography front since I moved to Melbourne, but this sunshine is making me want to get back into it (speaking of which, if anyone has any good lomo photo development recommendations in and around Melbourne, please do let me know!). Check out Ashley's blog for more information about her work, and pop over to Ashley's Etsy, Folksy and Big Cartel shops to check our her product line.

I just love those potplants and the hanging bottles. As with all things pop-up, the bar will only be open for a short time, so if you want to check it out you’ll only have until this weekend (287A Liverpool St, Darlinghurst). Check out the Australian Design Review for more info and images. And on that note, have a happy and relaxing weekend!

Anna also creates digital reproduction prints of some of her original collages.
Anna was born in South Africa and moved to the UK as a young child, and is currently studying illustration at the Cambridge School of Art (and she also teaches pottery to children in the evenings - multi-talented!). To purchase Anna's range of collages and prints (among other things), head over to her Esty shop, and check out her blog for more information.

I really love Claudia’s hand-drawn illustration style (and the yellow Cathrineholm bowl in the above print!), and especially like her food-themed illustrations (many of which are veggie- and vegan-friendly!). Pop over to Claudia’s website to view her portfolio, and you can purchase Claudia’s range of prints, tea towels and tote bags in her Etsy shop.

Katie also has a great blog, which is a mix of posts on food, travel, craft, design and photography. I especially love reading about Katie's veggie food and travel adventures, and it makes me nostalgic for the little excursions I used to make up to London. Head over there now for a good ol' read.

I don’t think words can describe how cute Darling Clementine’s work is, so if you haven’t done so already, pop over to their website and see for yourself. And while you’re at it, why not check out Ingrid and Tonje’s gorgeous homes over at Design*Sponge – total Scandi home envy.

Aside from creating commercial work for clients, Moira also dedicates time to more personal projects, including selling a variety of prints at her Etsy shop. Why not take some time to be inspired by looking through Moira’s portfolio at her website and blog. And on that note, have an enjoyable weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!
