Four seasons

Our weather is so schizophrenic at the moment, I'm hoping Melbourne's real summer does start to happen soon!  In the mean time, I just wanted to mention a couple of local happenings.  Given the rain and the cold, it's timely that Helen Webster who I profiled recently on Miss Rosanna is holding her annual sale at Ivanhoe Uniting Church, 19 Seddon Street in Ivanhoe from 3 - 5 pm this Saturday and it sounds like there are bargains to be had if you like beautiful, quality accessories.  You may even catch me there along with Mr Rosanna's mum.

The Macleod Village Christmas Fair is also being held on Saturday from 10 am - 3 pm and given the weather promises to be a lot nicer than today, it will be a lovely day out for the family.

Finally on Christmas, I did want to put out a bit of round up of online sites if you're not currently clicking and collecting or visiting malls and markets.  If you're into homewares, art and design, then there are some lovely things to be found at Lark, Lightly, Hard to find and Temple & Webster.  If you have a Moroccan fetish like me, try Metroscope or Kulchi.  For Art Deco, visit Deco Heaven, Fabrile, Online Antiques and Prism Lighting.  For jewellery, as an alternative to Tiffany, try E.g.etal for unique handmade Australian pieces.  I always think beach and outdoor gear and games/activities make great Christmas presents as well as subscriptions, memberships and gift vouchers for experiences or donations/volunteering for charity to also remember there are many people out there who are suffering at what should be a very joyous time for all.
