Pancake Day Extravaganza!

Oh Boy! Last Saturday was Pancake Day in the shop.....and what fun we had!
My lovely sisters Tori and Lorna, and friend Amy came over to help out and there were pancakes galore!





We wore aprons! Yay......this photo is very posed, because I did not do any of the cooking of the pancakes....I whipped up the batter, but left the fine art of making them to my lil' sis.



She is a whiz on the crepe machine! (and she also has a fantastic food blog...go have a read!)
We had the classic lemon & sugar and maple syrup toppings, but we also got a bit creative!



Coconut, Strawberry and Chocolate! ohhhh fancy :)



Honeycomb! mmmm delicious



Ham, Cheese and Basil....ohhhh savory!



It was a super fun day, and everyone that came into the shop was excited (one guy loved his pancake so much he came back for a second) We raised some money for Uniting Care and had a great time in the process....thanks to those who helped out, and thanks to my lovely customers that gave donations.....Yippie

*Also...big thanks to Amy for the photos...yay

Pancake Day @ Poppet.......Saturday 20th.... Yippie!

Well Pancake Day was technically on Tuesday....but here at Poppet, it's better late then never when it comes to pancakes! So this Saturday, we'll be flipping some pancakes (with many a delicious topping) to raise money for Uniting Care.
Not only will your donations give you a full belly and satisfied taste buds.....but it will also entitle you to 20% off all vintage in the shop on the day!!! Could this get any better? I think not!
So come to Poppet this Saturday and eat, shop and do good!

123 Scotchmer Street, Fitzroy North
open at 11 and pancakes will happen shortly after.
YUM YUM YUM!

Black & White



I made this dress a while ago, because I was completely lacking a basic black dress....crazy I know.
I was happy with this new wardrobe addition, but I couldn't help but think "gee whiz....maybe it's too basic" and that's where the giant white bow brooch comes to the rescue....because everyone likes large bows pinned to their front...don't they?



I got these sheer white spotty tights from target....and I love them lots!
I also got a pair in light grey...but I worry that they make me look like I have old lady corpse legs, and I don't think that's the effect I'm after...haha, oh well
