Beautiful Kyra. We enjoyed some treats from the Werribee Mansion's SocieTea pop-up which beautifully brightened up a rather grey day. We took our tea on the balcony and were fanfared by a marching band – how did they know we'd be there?! – and enjoyed the view. It looks so lush from up here!
We then had a look at some of the gorgeous things there, including perfect shoes from Sole Devotion (those brogues!), a new collection from Ghost and Lola (each piece is based on an ancient myth; I love things that have a story with them) and a light-box-duluxe (love that gold frame!) of bijoux from Metal Couture, including this great ring (I think – I'm not completely sure, but I think! – that's a sapphire!) with the compartment you lock with the attached key. I wish I'd got some more pictures of the beautiful Constance Roe bags, as they've got a good story behind them, too; named after the designer's grandmother, a stylish girl-about-town in her day, these bags are made from leather offcuts in small runs. I love that there is that combination of design and resourcefulness and it's executed so well. I want this slate blue bag, if you're wondering. What's that? Valentine's Day is coming up? Why yes, yes it is... You have no idea how much I want to take Babycat for Walkies with one of these. And I loved this idea: Letters from Letty, a subscription where once a month you get a parcel in the mail full of surprise goodies. I love getting snail mail and I know I'm not the only one – isn't it nice to get pretty packages among the boring window enveloped bills? Brown paper and string wrapped things are always a favourite.
