This installation reminds me of Alice In Wonderland. A little cookoo yet fun and pretty at the same time.

These terrariums house ‘good bugs’!

With the three new Gifts of Seeds launched it has been a busy past few weeks and I’ve been quite slack on the blogging front! Of course here I am finally sitting down to write a blog post and I have way too many things to mention and too many photos to share! I think a lesson should be learnt here – keep the blog posts shorter and more regular. Discipline Michelle! Someone to prod me would be great, does anyone have a good prodding stick?

I had my annual visit to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden show last week which I like to think of as ‘work’ or ‘research’… it’s a tough job sometimes, especially when the sun is shining and Carlton Gardens are covered with flowers 🙂 The show is a great place for inspiration with oh so many colourful floral and garden installations! Photos of some of the more interesting bits from the show are above.

Last week I was in Brisbane where I visited some new stockists, caught up with beautiful old friends, soaked up the warmer weather and spent some quality time with Ma and Pa. Yep… more hard work. And I wonder why my friends sometimes assume I don’t work at all!?

I am excited to be the featured seller on Ethikl at the moment which is very exciting. Check out my interview and be in the draw to win some Gifts of Seeds here.

We’ve got some wonderful new stockists coming on board including Five Boroughs in East Brunswick, Nook in West End (Brisbane) and Just Plain Gorgeous in Bulimba (Brisbane).

An early heads up that I will have a stall at the North Melbourne Market on Sunday the 17th of April so I have lots of packets to make before then!

And I had a wonderful weekend just gone in Sutton Grange and Castlemaine with cousin Georgie and sister Phoebe, (Can I call you guys that?) sleeping in a Teepee! We weren’t cold because we had a fire in the middle to keep us warm. Cool huh!?  The Castlemaine Festival was on so there were lots of festivities happening in Castlemaine, including some cool dudes with all sorts of awesome bikes including that penny farthing replica in the picture below.

Ok can someone please prod me in a few days to write about my visit to the Healesville Glass Blowing Studio? please?!
