succulent terrarium

The other night I was sitting in my studio,which is slowly turning into a jungle because there are so many plants in there now,and decided to draw something a little fun. Outcome? This succulent terrarium illustration! Ink.Pen.Gouache on paper & I've made some limited hand numbered prints of it that I'm putting up at my online shop today! It's a little bit of terrarium love without the watering + care.

Little Boat Espresso

My lovely lady face, Sara has officially opened the [roller] door to her gorgeous little cafe LITTLE BOAT ESPRESSO.

With a strong emphasis on the organic.delicious.handmade.ecologically conscious & generally wholesome bakery goods.breads.fresh beverages + even some Millie homewares make an appearance.

The cafe space itself is cosy & quirky,featuring many of Sara's own vintage + opshop finds + creations.I'll be doing a proper photoshoot + interview with her in the near future,but for now here are some Instagram shots I have taken over the past few weeks. Sara,being a mama to her her own little boy Otis, has built the cafe around the fact that many mothers enjoy some time out for a coffee,but sometimes find it difficult to keep their little ones entertained whilst doing so in a public setting.There is a continually growing area within the cafe for the kids to play/read/interact with one another/watch cartoons,so Mums [& Dads] can sit & enjoy their time out.

If you're from the Sunshine Coast or visiting,please take some time out to pop in for a delicious coffee & maybe even a blondie [a yummy take on the traditional brownie!].

And if you're a Facebook user,check out & 'LIKE' her page here!
