Life, Family and the art of treasure hunting!!!

Howdy girls!!  My appologies for not posting or replying to posts for a little while.  Have had a little trip to Sydney to see my darling grandmother who is, at the grand age of 88,  fading fast. She has had a wonderful innings, achieved so much and loved so many that I know she has no regrets and though I am so sad to see such a strong indomidable woman taking her last bows I am soo proud of her and the dignity she shows in face of ...well..the indignities of old age!!! Doreen Grace you are a trooper and I am much the better for having been your grand-daughter.  Right..that said I will do exactly as my Grandmother and that is to ....keep calm and carry on!!!  

Once back in Melbourne and a little melancholy my lovely other half decided we needed a treasure hunting day (don't you just love a man who realises the value of theraputic shopping!!).  We had a great day and I came home with some great bits.    Heres a few of the lovelies.  
A lovely vintage Laura Ashley tea set for two
The SCRUMMIEST old Westclox clock I LOVE this!!
A really gorgeous Pink roses picture, photo does not do it justice!!
THE most DIVINE Old Flue Cover!!!

 This is my table laden with goodies...not sure what I want to keep for myself arrgh

It was a great day and really theraputic!!  The Laura Ashley tea set dates back to when her pieces were made in ENGLAND and not China and you can sooo feel and see the defference in quality..its sooo nice!!  I didn't get to the market this week...shock horror!!!...because it was sooo wet here this weekend..I snuggled into bed and had a sleep SLACK!!   But I got up to some projects ..more to follow soon!!
