a weekend in the country ~~

Hubby and I had a weekend away this weekend. We visited the lovely goldfields town of Bendigo in Victoria.  It was the Australian National Antique Bottle & Collectables Show, and we exhibited our Inkwells.  I will post a few photos of our exhibits over on my other blog later this week, please do take a peek.

I did manage to visit One op shop during the weekend, and the Bendigo Sunday Market, as well as the National Show itself.  Picked up a few knitting patterns, 3 boxes of stockings, some buttons, an embroidery hoop, and a very sweet box,  lined in satin with a satin handle. The lid just says LOURNAY, the base states Lournay to be a Registered  brand of Colgate-Palmolive P/L.
Isn't it sweet?
It is getting late, we haven't unpacked yet and all that driving has really made me tired, so I may get an early night, although I am keen to do some reading of blogs as I haven't seen a computer since Friday morning.

I'll pop these finds over at Sophies Flea Market Finds too.


  1. Sound like you had a great time so glad you got in a opshop hit.Thanks for the info on that hat I bought bet there was a dress with it once.

  2. Lovely little collection. Just the sweetest box, I wonder what you will put in it?
