Nearly there

I've been down and out with the flu the past week and it has surely been a long, cold winter.  The blossoms have started appearing on the trees, I've started sneezing and the days are a little lighter and sunnier so it's great to know Spring is nearly here.

Once again, Banyule, Manningham and Nillumbik Councils have come together for their combined Spring Outdoors 2012 program from August to November - brochures are available now and I will post on some of the more interesting events which form part of this.

I have managed to stop in at Heide Museum of Modern Art in the past few days and their retail store is also looking beautiful.  Besides their gorgeous art books and children's toys, they also sell selected jewellery from e.g.etal, Aesop skin care and ceramics by local artist Lene Kuhl-Jakobsen.

Some of their newer additions include Lightly vases - I have actually recently met the very talented designer Cindy-Lee Davies through my friend Jules and have always loved her china butterflies.  Also on offer are wooden wares by Brunswick-based designers Bonnie and Neil and Clea Cregan's Miniscapes  - stunning miniature terrariums which would make wonderful housewarming or wedding gifts for people who live in small spaces. Bring on Spring!
