Mr Man and I went to Daylesford last Friday for a beautiful lunch to celebrate our  5th anniversary at the LakeHouse  in Daylesford, I love little get-aways like these into the country, I could just feel my whole being relaxing as the pace is  so much slower than Melbourne, and to think I used to live in KL where to be stuck in a 2 hour traffic jam is just a normal  occurrence everyday!

Our lovely 5th Anniversary Lunch at Lakehouse, Daylesford

While¬† we were in Daylesford,¬† we wondered around the shopping strip area and checked out a few art galleries , at Red Pepper Gallery ¬† I discovered Crispin Korschen’s artworks, I simply love whimsical art, there is a certain innocence about these style of art.¬† I¬† love her work, it¬† uncomplicated and yet it speaks volumes , I can already see a few of her art pieces on the wall of my work room at home. Find out more about her work here.

I hope you have a lovely weekend. :). Going to checkout¬† Minsky’s Market¬† this Sunday for the first time,it’s¬† back to the craft markets for 2012!! (woo-hoo!) . I wonder what goodies I will find? X Rachel
