coastal shopping highlight - Queenscliff's Tobias and the Cat
Well, you realise you've been off the blog for way too long when you have to sign into your google account and can't remember your password, hey? Having sorted that out, and feeling very refreshed after a gorgeous eight days in Ocean Grove, I thought I'd kick off the year by raving about a gem of a store in Queenscliff. Open just three weeks, Tobias and the Cat is a little treasure trove in Hesse Street. It's previous incarnation was a stall at The Mill vintage market in Newcomb (I went looking for it there and was dismayed to see it had gone - but the kind peeps tipped me off about the new store, thanks).
Excuse my dodgy iphone images, but I think you can get the picture - Tobias and the Cat has a seriously gorgeous collection of vintage wares and paintings by local artists. I wandered around, wanting to take everything home, but eventually settled on this fab framed medal poster (I've hung it here in my loungeroom, below). Now I can't wait to get back there, but first of all, I have to uncover my desk from the rubble of work and props thrown there in manic haste at the end of last year - blah!
