After several years, Hearts and Minds Art will no longer have an outlet at Eumundi. We have decided to concentrate on our gorgeous shop in Hastings Street, Noosa Heads and our new online presence. We have met some truly wonderful people at Eumundi and thank them for their help and friendship. x

OK..I am a blogger. I am a photographer. I am a retailer. I would NEVER go into someone's store and take photos of their product, unasked. NEVER. As a retailer I don't care if you are a blogger "doing an article". It's rude..and illegal. Please ask the retailer if you can take photos and, like me, they will probably be more than helpful with artists' information etc. But, like me, they do have to protect their artists' product copyright so due credit has to go with a REQUESTED photo. Thank you.

Yippee...another great Festival in Noosa this weekend. It's the International Food & Wine Festival! 20,000+ visitors are due to descend on our gorgeous little town to cook, taste, imbibe, be mesmerised at gourmet workshops, go to chef book signings, spot celebrities and try out all the fab Queensland produce. Hearts and Minds Art at No.1 will be open late 'til 8 Thurs, Fri & Sat. Bon Appetit!

I read something puzzling in a well-known decor mag. When describing a child's room ".....without any signs of patronising childrens decor...". The room described belonged to a 10yr old boy, and showed a plain green doona on a single little bed with a padded green backboard. One tin soldier stood on the windowsill and there was a blue rug on the wooden floor. Nothing else. Mmm.. what's wrong with kids 'decor' - a finger painting, a pile of stuffed toys,or a few Batman cars. Sorry, I don't find any personal creative kids work or decorating 'patronising' at all.
