It has been a challenging start to 2020, but as we have seen, challenges can bring out the very best in people.
With instigation from and in collaboration with our very good friends at Harper and Charlie, we are donating all proceeds from sales of all postcards during January and February to The Australian Red Cross Bushfire Relief.

Honey is REAL News September 04 2018, 0 Comments
Matt and Vanessa and their team at Melbourne City Rooftop Honey harvest delicious, raw, unblended honey from local bees who, like us, are living and thriving right here in Melbourne.
"This project not only seeks to address issues of sustainability, it also aims to raise awareness of the importance of bees whilst creating delicious honey. By placing hives on the roof spaces of cafés, restaurants, hotels and individual's gardens in and around Melbourne we have reduced the distance from production to plate to mere metres."

Here @melbournalia the opinions are mixed about Royal Wedding fever. But we all love a good souvenir and we all agree that homelessness is a problem in wealthy cities (like ours). So we bought a mug!
We love this initiative (and the dogs on the crest) maybe we should follow this example...what do you think City of Melbourne??

A Day in Town May 03 2018, 0 Comments
Who remembers their trips to "Town" as a child? It was so exciting, such a sense of occasion to have your hair brushed, shoes shined, make sure you have a clean hankie of course and set off with mum (or dad, or both) on a day trip into the city. Was it a choc top at the "pictures", lunch at Coles Cafeteria or running your hands up and down the water wall at the NGV that you liked the most?
Oh, all right, maybe you're too young to have had the shiny shoes, clean hankie and the Traffic Light Jelly at Coles routine, and your movie may have been Harry Potter or Babe rather than The Sound of Music or even Star Wars...but we're sure you wore your best sneakers and that you'll recall the excitement of passing under the clocks at Flinders Street Station, the gateway to the big city, or even glimpsing the grand old landmark passing by on the tram or from the old Princes Bridge exit!
What's your favourite memory of "A day in Town"?

Melbourne in March March 14 2018, 0 Comments
It's our favourite month in Marvellous Melbourne!
Don't mistake us, we love Melbourne all year round; it's just that March is a time of such purpose. The year has started to take shape and the summer holiday vibe recedes, it's still warm so we let go with a smile. All our grand plans are being made and settling into place.
But it's not time to get turn on the heater and get the hot water bottle out just yet! The Melbourne calendar is filled to bursting this month; the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Melbourne Queer Film Festival, the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival and don't forget the AFLW footy finals! The fab NGV Triennial continues until mid-April and if you really must get out of town there's White Night Ballarat, The Kyneton Lost Trades Fair, The Stawell Gift and Lorne Sculpture Triennale...phew!
