Some new additions to the wiki office....

I tweeted a little while ago about my new sewing machine. It's rather cute don't you think? Well it has one problem... I purchased it from the US and didn't consider that it wouldn't work in Australia. What can I say? I was lured by the Hello Kitty. I'm currently working on finding a transformer that doesn't cost more than the actual machine.

My lovely friend has offered to teach me how to sew. She's very talented and often makes her own clothes, I can only dream of being able to do that! One step at a time...

When I purchased the sewing machine from Urban Outfitters, I also placed an order for a pink vintage phone. Shortly after, I received an email from them saying they had cancelled that order. I wasn't given a reason, although it's probably because it wouldn't function in Australia. Why am I such an airhead around pretty things?

To console myself, I purchased this vintage phone from Australian ebay for $20.

On Thursday it was my birthday and my lovely boyfriend gifted me with this gorgeous orchid for my office. He was a little hesitant, because I've killed every other plant I have ever owned. I'm hoping I can break this record. If anyone has any tips about how to look after orchids, I'm all ears...

I hope you all have lovely weekends... we just arrived home from the farmer's markets armed with fresh fruit + veg, yummy rye bread and greek yoghurt. All for $30...

Also we have an entire bag of limes that were given to us by C's auntie, if anyone has lime recipes..sharing is caring

  1. That is the most ridiculously awesome sewing machine I've ever seen! Makes my plain white one look really boring in comparison. Love the phone too.

  8. Fantasic sewing machine, it's so cute!

    And I'm yet to find an office plant that doesn't die within a few months. I've been through a few! The orchid looks really nice though - orchids are definitely my favourite! I've read that they are hard to look after though.

  9. Ahh that Hello Kitty sewing machine is at least seven different levels of awesome. And don't worry, the thought that it might not work in Aus wouldn't have crossed my mind either! Hope you get it all sorted though.

    As for limes... *channels inner Masterchef* I'm thinking maybe some kind of dessert type thing. Cheesecake? Tart? Sorbet even?
