After our visit to Il Papiro in Melbourne, I had a timely catch up with Ryan from the Ink and Pen Postal Fellowship. His sister, recently returned from Italy, came home with the most exquisite gifts. Our conversation at Il Papiro about quill tips, including the sort of quill used to mark music staves was timely. As if we had sent her a letter advising her of our conversation, she gifted him with the below amazing collection on her return home.

My gosh I am behind in my posts! I haven't even told you everything about the absolutely brilliant Heritage Weekend that we had last May and the next one is nearly upon us.

Heritage Weekend 2012 began with a tour of one of my favourite buildings in Ballarat. The Ballarat Mechanics Institute has recently undergone some significant restorations which included returning the old cinema to its former state as a single level theatre. All the heritage colours have been restored and the room can now be hired. The barrels above were for mixing up raffle tickets and are on display in the library.
