I’ve always liked having lots of colour in my life, but living in a rental property limits things a little. I picked up a few paint swatches today for a DIY art project I want to do to brighten up the place. Thanks Pinterest for inspiring me to start making things that I will probably add to my long list of unfinished projects. I love the overwhelming choice of colour and the cute names for them. I wonder who comes up with the colour names.
I’ve wanted to do Open House Melbourne for a while, but every year I kept forgetting. This year I remembered and dragged along the husband and a couple of friends. Open House Melbourne “is a not-for-profit association that runs annual events providing the public a free and rare opportunity to discover a hidden wealth of architectural, engineering and historic buildings nestled around the city.”
It was a great opportunity to explore Melbourne and take photos of course. It was a shame that it was so cold and rainy, but it was still a fun day. I’m looking forward to next year’s event because there are so many places that I didn’t know about that I’d love to see. There are amazing photos on Flickr for the photo competition.
I am now much more inspired to head into the city and appreciate all that Melbourne has to offer. I think that often we take the granted the city we live in.
Here’s my selection for the day. Beware there are a heap of photos.
