Studious!


Here I am with my velvet- this is how big they are in relation to...um...me. I am quite small, but bigger than a hobbit. Note my lovely clean, white gallery wall where they are hanging waiting for transition to the Deluxe Cafe where they will grace the walls on the 8th December amongst the fine aroma of coffee and the delicious smells of pizza the like of which I have never found anywhere else. They load them with baby beets, feta, spinach, pumpkin, rosemary, portobello mushrooms and all manner of amazing combinations. I don't know how they think of it, but only grateful that they do. You can buy EPs from the Wellington International Ukelele Orchestra there too. Fine food, fine music and fine velvet all in a cafe tucked in by the Embassy Theatre. Ah Wellington, how could you be any more satisfying?

Great pics Fifi. You don't look much bigger than a hobbit to me!

Yes only just...in the famous words of Iggy Pop- I'm only five foot one. I did actually get asked to audition as a hobbit because of my height- pulled off the street in fact to do it. Not quite the fame I had in mind and I didn't get the part- maybe my feet weren't hairy enough...

Your velvets look amazing, and that pizza sounds mouth watering!
