The team at Local Shop / Flowers by Entwine have put all my favourite things into their Christmas window. Vintage style ornaments, faux trees, spindly legged, glitter encrusted reindeer…So much to love.

the movie reel : closing down party featuring the tarantinos
the movie reel is closing
Sad times in Westgarth Village – The Movie Reel will be closing in April. This treasure trove of film has been open since 1988, and has done sterling work to satisfy my arthouse, cult and kung fu cravings. Thanks Robert, Ben and all the other staff – you are awesome, and will definitely be missed! Look out for their huge DVD sale, which starts on March 17.

living the dream
A sunny Saturday with one of my favorite people, both of us in tiki-fabulous attire. Buying Richie Fahey’s Waikiki Wahine at The Outre Gallery sale (in black faux bamboo frame, obviously), a new panama at Smart Alec, a wander through the Victorian Hot Rod Show, and gelato at Il Melograno. So happy…

street art now : dean sunshine’s book launch
For those who came in late, Dean Sunshine launched his new book yesterday. Street Art Now is 200+ pages of fabulous, from Australia and overseas. For those of you on Instagram, artists deets are included so you can easily follow your favourites. Just $59.95 ($104.95 International) from the Land of Sunshine website, or find it at many bookstores and galleries around town. The Silent Auction panels were amazing, with all funds raised going to charities chosen by the artists. Hard to take pics of large pieces with cider in hand (and a nearly flat phone camera – omg) but here we go – works by Smug, Conrad Bizjak, Bailer, Deb, Jack Douglas, Putos, Itch, Mysterious Al and Phoenix. Steen Jones, Sofles, Dvate, Bailer and Be Free also had panels up for auction on the night. Congratulations Mister Sunshine!
