wooden churches.

Last week we did a bit of driving through New South Wales. We kept stumbling upon really nice, old churches dotted around the countryside and loved how different they are to the ones we find back home.

Here are some we found on our travels.

not any old vintage.

We have been in Australia for over two weeks now and have been wondering all around. One place we keep returning too is this little cafe suitably named Vintage. Its surroundings suit me just fine, the people are as friendly as friendly gets, and the treats are delicious.

I think my mum would like you to know that she is a regular here also.

Meet Columbo…

This is Columbo. He caught our eye at the auctions a few weeks ago, I raised my hand a couple of times and we got to take him home!

He has clearly been well loved over his lifetime before being abandoned in a cold, damp auction house – hopefully we will be able to put a smile put back on his face soon…

Quilt and a Visit.

I've made a quilt! Took a little while but finished it just in time for a visit from Tom and Jen. They have been sleeping on our floor in our freezing cold flat for two nights although John turned the heating on in their honor and to much applause from me.

"What a wonderfully warm and fashionable quilt" - Jen Head.

We contacted Tom for a comment but he refused.

Freezing cold castles.

This past weekend we bravely headed out with a thermos of soup to Bothwell Castle. I say bravely as this was the first absolutely freezing day we have had in a while – giving us a taste of things to look forward to. I really don't mind the cold though when there are places like this not far from our house.  

Note to self find john some wellies.

I picked up this 80's book from a charity shop a little while ago.

We were flicking through it the other day, and considering its aimed at children, some of the content is pretty amusing…

This illustraion of a 'traditional Aboriginal dwelling' made us laugh.

Just what every child should know! You wont find many kids books that end like that nowadays.

Kilt Jackets.

On a recent trip to the car boot sale, I managed to pick up these little beauties for only £6 the pair!

The tweed one is my favourite and came with a matching waistcoat and really cool leather buttons.

These are definitely one of my proudest car boot finds, now all I need is an excuse to wear them!

I have been doing a bit of work recently for our good friend Nicola.

Her wonderful new shop 'Create' opens this weekend. Unfortunately we can't make the grand opening, but we got a sneaky peak last week and it was looking really great!

She will be selling a whole host of hand-made, vintage and crafty goods as well as offering craft classes to the lucky people of Blairgowrie.

Her website is currently under construction but will be online soon (I hope).

We have been really busy gathering together a whole load of new 'stuff' over the last few weeks – including this old step ladder. I spotted it abandoned at the side of the road while on my way back from work and thought it deserved better.

It is now home to some of our latest finds.

Doesn't it make you wish for winter.

Manchester Orchestra

We were lucky enough to see the magnificent Manchester Orchestra last night.

They were really great as expected. The video above is for "I can barely breathe" which was a definite highlight for me.
