For the love of linen


Another Friday, another fresh linen day. Clearly, I'm easily pleased.

Today, these vintage embroidered pillowcases, which were picked up at Calico & Ivy a couple of weeks ago for the princely price of $25 are getting a run.

Even more pleasing than fresh linen, though, was a knock on the door last night at around 9pm. Expecting a sales person of some sort, the Husband went to answer it.

Turns out he had left his wallet on top of a parking meter in Surry Hills. A woman, a regular customer of a nearby cafe, picked it up and took it to the cafe. After work, the owner, drove the 4km to our house to give it back.

Thank you Hao's Cafe in Cooper Street, Surry Hills, that little act of kindness made my week.

  2. I love acts of kindness by strangers. They are the ultimate evidence that life is worth living. I rather like your cat's beanbag too!

  4. As the only reference I could find when I googled keshie was "Melbourne's favourite Afro Groove band" I'm guessing you mean something else, Angelina!

  5. Fresh linen day, the kindness of cafe owners, it's all pretty gorgeous at yours this weekend. By the sounds of your story, your man didn't even know he had lost it, so I love that there was no anxiety or panic in your weekend either. I hope you have a wonderful week.
