Spring Is In The Air

At long last, Winter is coming to an end here in Melbourne.  I have never been so excited to be woken up by sneezing 10 times in a row, ahh, hayfever, the first sign of Spring.  The gorgeous Flowering Plum tree in our front yard is just about to blossom after looking so naked for the last few months, and suddenly, the ride to work on my Vespa each morning becomes more interesting (and possibly more dangerous) as I get to admire the lovely blossom trees lining the streets of Melbourne suburbs.  I love this time of year as the weather starts warming up, the gardens start looking their best, the music festivals start, lovely spring dresses start hitting the stores, and we turn the corner and head straight toward the end of year break.  Goodness, it seems I'm getting a bit carried away.  To help you get carried away, here is a range of our blossom-themed, unique, handmade goodies, made with love by artists & crafters in Japan, Australia, Thailand and Sweden!
