Things to do with old paper

Old maps and old sheet music are great for making things.  The paper folds well and is always interesting to look at.

Here are some things I have been making:

Portable Herb Gardens

Just like you would occasionally move cushions or pictures around in your house to change the look of things, it's nice to be able to change the look of your garden without having to involve shovels, wheelbarrows and lots of heavy lifting.

This summer I made some portable herb gardens.  One is in a large terracotta pot, the next is in an old wooden box and the newest one is in an old motor oil stand that has seen better days.

You can move them around your garden easily, and they make a great gift.

Somerville Outdoor Cinema

It wouldn't be a proper Summer in Perth without a trip to the Somerville.

It takes a bit of organising, as it has become a very popular venue, but we went to see the much acclaimed French movie Amour a few nights ago.   It was a picture perfect night and a full house.  My photos don't do justice to the amazing backdrop of the Norfolk island pines but there is something magical about the place as the daylight dwindles and the trees are in silhouette against the evening sky.
