This morning eldest P and I visited a truly magical exhibition, perfect for the Splash of Colour project. Made entirely of glitter, beads, sweets, sherbet and miniscule origami, Sweet sweet galaxy is a three dimensional installation by Tanya Schultz, Nicole Andrijevic and John Kassab that fairies would be quite at home in.

We could have gazed at it all day. The detail is phenomenal and it's easy to imagine you're two inches tall and get utterly lost in the tiny landscape.
There are quirky surprises here and there - a little toadstool or a grotto with a tiny horse grazing inside, a hillside made of sherbet pips or a bridge made of sweets. Ethereal twinkly music adds to the atmosphere.
I doubt there could have been more colour in one room. It was wonderful. Here's a little film I made:
If you're near Bury St Edmunds do go and see it - here's the geography. Thankyou SO much for the tip Celia.
