Dream Home

This is the name of the award winning play presented by Darebin Arts' Speakeasy which is currently showing at the Northcote Town Hall until 3 June.  Like Grand Designs, I think this comedy about life in suburbia highlights the pitfalls of home renovation and the toll it can take on relationships.  While Mr Rosanna and I have never gone down the path of a complete overhaul - most of our friends and family who've renovated have said "never again!" - I do take my hat off to any serial home renovators.

A couple of things on this weekend - the Fairfield Farmers Market is on as well as the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.  And while venues for the jazz festival are mainly in the city, I think some of the shows would be fantastic to see.  I've not yet been to the Melbourne Recital Centre in Southbank, which looks great from the outside.

Speaking of home, I have long loved these jute baskets and bowls that are available from Australian fair trade retailer The Dharma Door.  I've got my eye on a couple of the striped versions for my house.
Finally I am very happy to announce a special homewares offer from Romulus and the Gypsy for readers of my blog!  See below for more details:
