Crumbs Bakery North Melbourne and a Visit to Beautiful l’uccello

Today I started my errands in North Melbourne:

I hadn’t had breakfast so at 11:15 I went to Crumbs Organic Bakehouse on Errol Street to try their pizza.  The window display had the usual delicious looking treats and I settled for a pizza slice with tomato, capsicum and mushroom.  Yum!

Well.  This was the week I was supposed to stop eating desserty things and sugar.  I sort of forgot about that:

From North Melbourne I hopped on the tram and headed in to the city to meet up with my buddy J.  While I was waiting for her, I hung around the Block Arcade.  Here’s the mosaic, complete with a stranger’s manky shoe:

I didn’t need an excuse to listen to this guy outside play:

When I met up with J, we went to l’uccello, supplier of vintage haberdashery materials.  What a beautiful shop!  From the windows and wood panelling, to the displays and just all kinds of beautiful awesome.  See for yourself!

l’uccello is located in the old Nicholas Building in Melbourne.  I was all oohing and ahhing over the little doors:

I would love a letterbox like this:

Here are some more snaps I took when out in the city today, before it started bucketing down and made my Lord of the Fries burger go all soggy while I was trying to eat it when hurrying to my tram stop:

Hope you enjoyed that little tour 🙂
