About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

White NIght Melbourne...

... ... last night TraderVic and I went to White Night Melbourne.  For those of you who may not have heard of White Night (they are held in various cities across the world) it is a kind of all night arts festival where various buildings are lit up by lights on themes and art installations are set up across the CBD.

This year was the first year we had been and we headed into the city at about 7.30pm and didn't get home until about 2am!

It was just amazing, hundreds and thousands of people moving around the city, all of the city cafes and restaurants open and lots and lots of fascinated people looking at these light installations.

The theme on many of the buildings was Alice in Wonderland, it was just amazing!























I hope that you enjoyed these photos.

hugs,

That is amazing Kaye. That was all done with lights on the buildings. Gorgeous. My favorite is the second to last one as green is my favorite color.
