Pant wetting material


I think I would literally wet my pants if I were to come across masses of flowers like this. We are so sheltered here in Australia. Don't get me wrong, I love this great country of ours, but we seriously lack:
Cool furniture from Craigslist. MFAMB finds the best stuff.
Antique markets like the one's Brooke and Steve visit
Stuff from Anthro
Single coloured M&M's

What else do we need here people? Let's discuss .....

  1. How about 1st dibs - some amazing things there.
    Oh, and the ability to grow cold-climate bulbs like tulips and hyacinths here in tropical Brissie.
    K x

  2. Oh yes, to both of them. Bulbs for sure!!

  3. I second the single coloured m&m's!

    To be able to buy items from Williams Sonoma. ( Unfortunately they do not ship to Australia :(

  4. grass is always greener over the pond. Me I can get flowers like that everywhere and the bulbs are no problem but I would love some us stores over here too or at least make shipping to the Netherlands easier and cheaper ....

  5. oh how i would love WS to ship to Australia.
    Danielle -yes, why is it that the grass is always greener?
    Keeps us on our toes!

  6. Big bunches of masses of the same flower are so effective. Like a vase of loads of daffodils for Spring as a table centrepiece. These tulips are stunning in their multitude. Have a nice weekend. x

  7. Oooooh Sharnel, I would LOVE for you to do a post for us on all the awesome things that you Australians have that we can't get here in the States too!

  8. Totally agree with your comments Sharnel. Would also love Pottery Barn to open a store here or post to Australia.

  9. Pottery Barn (all stores)
    Cheap books
    Monsoon Kids
    REAL bric a brac markets as only the French can do.

  10. I'm with you on Anthropologie, how I would love them to open a store in Brisbane.

  11. New buisness for you Sharnel ? You can go to the states every couple of months & take all the orders from us to shop at Pottery Barn & Williams Sonoma !

  12. I wish we had Michaels Craft Store her in Aust. Trust me though, I live in Perth where we have even less choice of everything here...On a brighter note, at least Anthro are now shipping to Australia!!! And oh how I wish we had Pottery Barn...

  13. I share your frustration here in the UK for single coloured M&M's. We also lack Williams Sonoma & Pottery barn ! We do however now have an Anthropologie! Have a sweet day!

  14. You had me at the title ... then I saw the picture. VERY pant wetting worthy ! So glad I came here, it's gorgeous !


  15. - those massive round (and i mean round, not our round balloons that are called round but are oval!) balloons they have for parties in the US
    - stripy vintage paper straws
    - converse website so i can buy my boys cool shoes

  16. list of what I need here in Oz is so long....I was spoilt for too long.
    Anthropologie, W&S, PB, Restoration Hardware, Gap, Old Navy, Costco, Trader Joes, Crate and Barell, West side markets, 24 hour Home Depot and Target stores...oh I need to stop...homesickness....

  17. I also wish we had single coloured M&M's, actually more choice in the single coloured candy department.

    I also wish we had those lovely paper honeycomb balls, the ones you hang from the ceiling. Oh and more choice in cake stands, other than boring white. I also which we had a Cath Kidston outlet here (drool) so I can actually touch and feel before I buy.

  18. Did you know that M & M's here will also put your photos on your M & M's to personalize them?

    Not even kidding :)
