Why is it that exactly when you are having a financial crisis you find the most awesome stuff ever on Etsy?
I'm also wondering whether my love for all things Swedish came before or after I started working at Ikea? I'm thinking before, but it has enhanced the effect. I went to the Scandinavian Christmas Bazaar (fete) in Toorak a few weekends ago and it was fantastic. I wish I had taken my camera so I could show you the amazing things they were selling. I bought a few really beautiful papercut ornaments and decorations for myself and my mum and chowed down on Danish pancakes and Swedish waffles, yum!
I can't wait for it to come around next year and hopefully this time I won't have to go alone because it really is a fun atmosphere to be with family and friends, I strongly recommend it (oh and you get to gawk at all the ridiculously huge and beautiful Toorak mansions which is also fun).
