A Spring in my step

It's been a cold winter from start to finish but given the amount of activity that's currently on - I think people are ready to start getting out there again.  I was at Heide Museum of Modern Art volunteering yesterday thinking the cold and pouring rain would keep people away but it was absolutely bustling right up until lunch time particularly in the central galleries where the very colourful Melinda Harper: Colour Sensation exhibition is still on.  Both Melinda Harper and her mum were at the gallery yesterday.

It's actually been National Op Shop week this week (which is also a local volunteering initiative from the DoSomething charity) and there are a lot more events on this weekend.  The RMIT Design Market is on tomorrow at Melbourne Central where you can buy some of the best new work from emerging artists and designers from the RMIT community.  My friend ceramic artist Lene Kuhl Jakobsen has also got together with two other Danish artist friends - Karen Glahn (jewellery) and Christina Jonsson (clothing) and will be holding a pop up shop Dan3K 10 am - 4 pm from tomorrow until Sunday 6 September at 135 Noone Street Clifton Hill (with cafe next door) as part of Craft Cubed.  Both events are great opportunities to buy the Dads in your life a handmade Father's Day present.

Meanwhile my friend Estelle Michaelides is holding her annual Manicure & Mocktail Day tomorrow at The Estelle Store in Ivanhoe if you're wanting to indulge yourself as a Spring treat.  Speaking of Spring, the annual Hurstbridge Wattle Festival is being held on Sunday 30 August - I love hearing the big steam train whistling from where I live and knowing that the dreariest season of the year is finally coming to a close - it's been a long one but we are almost there.  Have a great weekend!
