Art Collecting...

Image
Slowly but surely we are putting our new home together, piece by piece. One of the things I love the most about our Edwardian home, is the height of the ceilings. While this gives our home a sense of grandeur and space, it has given us new challenges with regards to our art collection. Over the years we have picked up pieces of original artwork from places we have visited and from people that have inspired us. These pieces, mixed in with my artwork and the work of dear friends, has created a lovely eclectic art collection that we our proud of. While it would have been wonderful to have continued to fill our walls with original artwork, unfortunately our budget has not allowed for that! Therefore we were very pleased to come across these beautiful big vintage botanical prints from erstwhile and feel they have pulled together our collection beautifully in the lounge room. I am now on the lookout for more beautiful art prints that come in larger sizes and will continue to balance that w…

Our New Home in North Melbourne

Image
After many happy years of living in semi-rural, beautiful Warrandyte (24 km east of Melbourne CBD see previous post here). Where our primary school aged kids benefitted from a tire swing in the yard and the Australian bush, we decided on a complete change. With our three girls growing up, recognising their need for independence and wanting to embrace all that Melbourne has to offer as one of the most 'livable cities in the world', we set our plan to move in, in motion.
We chose a very good co-ed state run high school and started looking for a family sized home in the zone. Not an easy task. We marched through poky, little dark houses, clambered up and down stairs of modern town houses.
