Calling All Collage Fanatics!

 If you love collage as much as I do, you MUST head to Ruby Dog's Pop Up shop this week!!! I have been collecting all sorts of goodies from there for my workshops at Aberthau, including this lovely Queen Elizabeth stamp, a beet stamp and an umbrel (fennel? dill?) stamp. These are going to be great for messages to the bees and garden journals.

 I scored this lovely little recipe book for the birds.

 I love the whimsical recipe names: Flicker Fricassee. Just to be clear: These are recipes for feeding the birds, not eating them!

And I've always loved this illustration--so it's nice to have a large copy of it on good quality paper, suitable for framing. Aren't the colours gorgeous?

Just the facts ma'm: Ruby Dog's pop up shop is open for one more week, ending this Saturday at 6 pm!

RubyDog's Art House
4570 Main St.
Monday:  Closed
Tuesday to Friday:  11 to 6
Saturday:  10 to 6
Sunday:  noon to 5

Now the two workshops you collage artists will love are:

 Messages for the Bees with Madame Beespeaker (all ages welcome): Thurs. April 18, 4-5:30 pm 

Garden Journaling (age 12 and up) Thursday April 25, 4-5:30 pm

The workshops are 5$ each which is a GOOD VALUE, especially for the garden journal workshop. (See a complete list of the workshops two posts down.)

The location is glamorous! We will be in the dining room at Aberthau Mansion at the West Point Grey Community Centre: 4397 West 2nd Avenue 
Please register here. 

Now when Leanne sends out her newsletter, she always has such fabulous links, so in that spirit, here are some seasonal links:

The daffodils are blooming at Aberthau, and the cherry trees are blossoming in Japan, as you can see in this lovely post by Hello Sandwiches.
Here's a beautiful award-winning photo of a Flicker on the Audubon Magazine website.
This one's for garden geeks: microscopic photos of fungus gnats which are the nemises of seedlings started indoors.  
Here's a lovely recipe for an herbal scrubby shower bag from The Essential Herbal Blog.
