Chocolate and other joys

This week I was hoping to show you a photo of my tidied up creative space, but guess what? I don't even need to say it. Anyway, the tidy sewing room can wait because something more important has come into my life.....

I am easily distracted at the best of times, but when a few slightly exotic chocolates came back from America this morning (oh, and my husband came home too!), I lost my concentration completely.
The Junior Mints are my favourites, mainly due to their minty power, but also due to the Seinfeld episode they featured heavily in. If you haven't seen it, I will just tell you that a Junior Mint ended up falling into the guts of a surgery patient.
Milk Duds are pretty yummy too...caramely, milky, Fantales without the jaw dislocation.

These are my least favourite. I will never understand the whole chocolate / peanut butter combo. What is going on with that? Two perfectly good flavours which should never have anything to do with each other, both ruined. Its un-natural!

This bag has potential. Normally I think Hershey's is horrible, as do most people who have taste buds, however when it is combined with some other goodies I can almost accept it. Especially when there is no other chocolate in the house and I am going on my 9PM sugar rampage. I will definitely give them a go.

Hey,the other thing I did want to talk about apart from feeding my face is the fantastic National Gallery of Victoria and its' wonderful goodies. Did you know that anybody can book an appointment to visit the costume study rooms to have a look at all the fashion and textile wonderfulness there? The collection belongs to the public, so you too could see the gorgeous beaded 1950's jackets, the 1920's dresses, and the amazing American Express Card dress worn by the costume designer Lizzy Gardner when she got an Academy Award for Priscilla Queen of the Desert. So much culture! I think I need a Junior Mint!


  1. My hubby loves the penaut butter cups...they make me dry reach!! But what a haul of yummies. Enjoy your week :)

  2. Wow, that fella of yours knows how to get you excited! Phew. We may not see you for a while as you eat your way through that stockpile of goodness. If you need any help, I"m only a phonecall away. The NGV stuff sounds fascinating, can't wait to hear more xo
