In the Pink

We ventured off to the Castlemaine swap meet on Sunday..always fun..the day was lovely, quite warm actually and we had great fun fossicking around the stalls.

Always of course are the beautiful cars..all polished and either waiting to be sold or just being shown as what can be achieved with a lot of elbow grease, love and of course money!

I found some beautiful glasses and got a bargain for 6 large wine and 6 smaller wine for $20.00.

I have a thing for red or rose coloured glasses…ironic ..I also grabbed some sweet little unusual spoons and an old ice-cream tin..those were the days when things were not only made beautifully but even packaged beautifully as well…I will use the tin for biscuits (cookies for my American friends).

We left and went to the local nursery and butterfly house..i received a $50 gift voucher for my prize winning Apple Pie so Phil and I had a lovely coffee and lemon tart each and I grabbed two carpet roses..we spent $2 as the voucher covered the rest..so for me Sunday was a bargain..beautiful weather..lovely glasses a wonderful afternoon tea and some pretty roses for

my long suffering garden!

  4. πŸ˜‰ Today (Wed) is one of ‘those’ days Bev. Did not get much accomplished; just resting. Yakking on the phone. I just have no interest in ‘doing’ anything…pain has settled some….
    I could go for a nap, lol….
    Hope you are having a good day.
    Love S-E.

    • Pain does that to you Sherri-Ellen..drains you so badly…I think the dramamtic change in weather here has not helped..mind you I love that we have cooler days…never thought I would say that but after the nearly 45c days of summer I say bring on winter!! have a great day sweets Loves Bev xxx
