Of green frappes, sweet-water pearls, Chinese silk collars & black rolled silk strings ... More hedonistic pursuits in the heartland of Melbourne Bohemia

Busy morning @ Gems & Beads International (Smith Street, Collingwood). My resolution to spend no more than 30 minutes there, and only buy the bare necessities ... By the time I left, 2.5 hours later, I was ladened with beautiful red Chinese silk collars, lots & lots of sweet-water pearls, Swarovski crystal flowers & butterflies ...

Lunch @ The Green Grocer (where else, on a sunny day which coincided with time-off from work!) in North Fitzroy: a superb green frappe made from grapefruit & mint, beef & mushroom pie with chutney & fresh greens.

More rummaging @ Boutique Beads: glass beads, black hand-dyed rolled silk strings ... Bliss!
