WE'RE EXCITED .... The Hearts and Minds Art Online store is being built and should be a happening thing in maybe a month. Lots of gorgeous ideas and gifts will be at your fingertips, and what's more most will be Australian made (like Anita's jewellery pictured).....

THE NEW SHINGLE IN OUR WINDOW AT NO.1 HASTINGS STREET, NOOSA HEADS. Thanks Elise for your original logo design!.

One of the things we enjoy is offering service to our clients - from giftwrapping an overseas gift order to getting a personalised message just right; from welcoming prams into our store to just being .. well .. polite. So it really steams me when service isn't offered. Take note telecommunications companies and mobile phone retailers - it's not hard surely to follow through on customer service. Meanwhile my mobile STILL isn't downloading images. Aaarrgh. (sorry - had to vent).
It is 24 hrs since I wrote the above post - this bit is an edit. I feel guilty. In the scheme of things, does it matter that my phone doesn't work. Not really, just an inconvenient reminder of inefficiency. But then I got an email from a dear friend in Africa who has set up an orphanage there. Mmmm, my problems pale. xx

Noosa is gorgeous right now - 28 degrees with a smooth breeze. Packed restaurants. Cruisey holidaymakers. Kids fishing. Lying on the beach. Taking to the waves. And we're busy in the shop at No.1 Hastings Street - loving meeting new and familiar faces. We've got a great range of plaster wall plaques too that sum up Summer on the Sunshine Coast - very retro and Made in Queensland.
