Walks around the neighbourhood

We are tending to take more notice on our one hour of exercise a day structure in Melbourne for now.

I keep finding treasure in the many gardens and such adorable little and biggish homes I pass. Homes that must be filled with a vast array of stories that could fill a book. I think these little homes and gardens are exuding warmth, cosy and love in buckets; I feel it as I pass by.

I’ve picked flowers (trying to be discreet) from these blooming gardens and have started the process of pressing them in many old books.

What joy I am making with my miniature artworks and pressed flowers that eventually will be selected so methodically with my tiny tweezers to frame with this little series of local home studies. You may recognize your beautiful home over this series.

I will let you know when these are in my shop for a piece of history you may collect. x

Christmas in Eltham

Without a doubt each Christmas you can hear Christmas tunes blaring from the loud speakers as the local Fireys travel up down the steep hills around residential Eltham. It’s those regular acts within the local community that bring the neighbourhood out to chat and of course wave to Santa and his firey crew on the back of the big loud red Firetruck. Luv this!
