Flower power

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Maybe because its such lovely autumn weather, or maybe it’s because we are joining in at The Tessalaars Gardening and Plants Expo this weekend, April 6th &7th in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. Or maybe it’s just because we love flowers? Lots of flower power, in a rather gentle way is happening in store at the moment!

The Jeffrey Smart Exhibition, Master of Stillness 1940-2011, closes next Monday at Tarrawarra Gallery, and it is a wonderful opportunity to see various stages of his work.

I was completely unaware of Jeffery Smart, but after hearing so many people talk about how wonderful the exhibition was, I thought I should mosey along and see for myself.

One glorious late afternoon, with my Grade Two boy in tow, we headed off:was it amazing! ¬†Loving it both so much, we have revisited again, and yet again! ¬†Of course, there are no pictures of the paintings allowed, but Tarrawarra itself is so magical. It is one of my favourite places in the Valley, and each time I go, I wonder why I don’t make the effort to go more often!

Old ledgers…

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

Love an old ledger, gorgeous bindings, aged papers and a certain smell that wafts out: ok I admit, sometimes that’s not such a good thing!

I have a stack at home on the sideboard that give interest and height on the sideboard.


Others I have secretly stashed away in cupboards to be bought out when no one is watching!

At Heathmont we have several old notebooks and tombs tempting me here too, no where is safe!


Look at this special one, an old invoice book from Thos.A.Turner, a removal isn’t specialising in carting of electrical goods…

Then there are these old file holders at Healesville…


See, temptation is everywhere!
