Butterfly Mania

I have a thing for butterflies at the moment – maybe it has something to do with the current metamorphosis my life is undertaking right now. We have sold our home in the city (Melbourne), and bought a block of land on a golf course, about 800m from the beach in Torquay (all in the one week). Hence the reason I have been a little quite lately.

My husband and I joke that we have brought our retirement plans forward about 30 years – and I can’t think of a reason why we shouldn’t. After all, life is to be lived – isn’t it?

Yes, I did say land (no house – yet!). You will all be blessed with living the exciting experience of designing, building, decorating and landscaping our new home – the next year will be Hey Bernice! on steroids.

Donation Central… Bernice inspires the masses (maybe not that many, but some of you)!

Since launching Hey Bernice! in December I have had a steady flow of donations from family (Thank you!). The picture here is a sample of the beautiful asian inspired paper my sister gave me at Christmas time. They are small squares of gorgeous patterns (my generous god mother Norma kindly gave my sister and me kimonos made from similar patterns when we were young). I have plans to get crafty with them tomorrow, and will be sure to write a post about the outcome (I’m still mixing and matching options in my head for this exploit).
