My accidentally green-themed weekend might accidentally make you a little green with envy...

I went to Sydney. My Co-Editor and I had an editorial catchup at the cafe of The Powerhouse Museum (please note how well her knitting, the magazine and my lunch coordinated with each other...)
Some knitting, a copy of The tiny Tomes and a tuna nicoise salad on a cafe table.
 Why the Powerhouse? Well, they have this exhibition on....
Model of a house by Marion Mahony and Walter Burley Griffin.
Side of a vintage Walther & Stevenson dolls house, showing the light switches.
Architectural model of Le Corbusier's Villa Shodham.
Side view of a vintage Walther & Stevenson miniature farm house building.
 (While we were there we also ducked into the King's Cinema to watch some of Cinefix's 8-Bit cinema
Screenshot of the title of an 8-Bit interpretation of the movie Forrest Gump.
 and checked out the pieces on display in the Interface exhibition...)
An original Apple 1976 personal computer on display in the Powerhouse Museum.
 Then we headed downtown to the Museum of Sydney, where we found more:
Model of Hudson's St Ives Ready-cut home, and accompanying sales brochure.
 and more miniature buildings on display.
Lego model of Harry Seidler's Australia Square building.
This morning I attended my first AMEA committee meeting before heading back to Canberra with friend Celia, via Berrima
Historic stone cottage in Berrima.
 And Eling Forest Winery.
Bottle of Dcider on a patio table  in a garden.

I love the way your lunch is keeping a cautious eye on the bigfoot in the picture nearby.
