  1. For the Locals

    Sublime, Photography & Coffeehouse: One Saturday we were traveling from the Rocklea markets to the Moggill Markets and passed this place in Graceville. They just opened a little coffee stand out behind their studio. It’s a really lovely place, good coffee, and relaxing spot to read the paper.

  2. Making Coffee

    Two weeks ago, I noticed that the coffee tree out back was filled with bright red cherries. After a little bit of online research, I thought it might be fun to give homemade coffee processing a try. (In hindsight, “fun” is not the word I would actually use anymore.)

    You can see each stage of the process in my Flickr set. My thumbs are raw from taking off the parchment this afternoon. I hope to roast next weekend.

  3. Pretty Things

    Yesterday, for the first time in a long while, I found a whole bunch of sites on the internet that interested me. I’ve been quite un-entertained by the w-cubed lately, thus the lack of posting perhaps.

    It all started with the discovery of Below the Clouds… a site on which I cannot read a word, but the pictures and hyperlinks have lead me to such amazing finds, such as:
    handpresso: if you ever find me camping (which is highly unlikely), I would most likely be found with one of these beautiful coffee-making devices.

    Retro Joy: hello! A candle holder that looks like the base of a joystick. Does it get any cooler?

    Moss Online: store with many pretty things I’ll never order.

    A Low Impact Woodland Home: so hobbity, so earth-friendly, so how I wish I could be knowing realistically it will never happen.

    Cassette Tape Dispenser: it’s a sticky-tape dispenser shaped like a cassette tape. Love it!

    ♥ I also found Bella Dia today through one of the sites I linked yesterday. Just love those yarn ball flowers.

    ** You can get the Handpresso Portable Espresso Machine at Amazon. (If you love me, you may also get me the Handpresso Wild Outdoor Picnic Set with Deluxe Case… so beautiful!)

  4. Thunder Only Happens When It’s Raining

    We’ve had some lovely thunderstorms come through the area again. And yesterday the power was out at work for all but a couple hours. Gotta love that.

    In unrelated news, the coffee machine here doesn’t work anymore. Hence my lack of motivation to do anything.
