First of March is the first day of Autumn, Fall for those of you living in North America. To celebrate first day of Autumn my friend and I went out looking for this scrumptious cafe Chez Dre in South Melbourne. We weren't disappointed when we got there. The French patisseries on display were to die for. We thought they were there for display only! Too gorgeous to eat, honestly!

Full, Skinny and Magic are just a few interesting names for latte. I used Waterlogue app to enhance this photo so it looks like a water colour painting! After morning coffee and cakes my friend took me to South Melbourne market. To me it's one of the best markets in Melbourne. I did my usual weekly shopping there.
On my way back I stopped at Ziguzagu Warehouse at 7-11 Hill St. Cremorne (Richmond). The week before I went to Kazari, which is the parent of Ziguzagu, and saw some amazing stuff there.

ZZ warehouse is also where furniture restorations take place. Every time I'm there I spend as much time in the workshop as the shop part itself.
I dyed some canes with coffee and posted them here. I started weaving a Scallop basket. I finished the first basket. I was on a roll and started another one with finer dyed canes I dyed a while ago.

These baskets might look complicated to you, but for me it's easy and straightforward to make. I lost count how many I have made to-date. I have given most of them away to friends and family.
Instead of a lucky find for ending my post, today I would like to share with you what my week ending is. After I finish work on Friday, I swim about 25-30 laps each week. It's a refreshing way to end a working week!
So, what is everyone else doing this week? March is zooming along at lightning speed. It won't be long before we are off on our around the world trip to celebrate Mr Notjustnat's retirement. The preparation is under-way at the moment. All dates are fixed, tickets booked. Some more accommodation to be booked and we are ready!
Until next time
