Antiquing in Castlemaine

We spent all day yesterday out and about in the autumn sunshine, with two of our very favourite friends, searching for treasures. It was pretty much the perfect day.

We started the day with a visit to the local markets (as we do most Sundays) for a rummage through the old junk, before popping into one of our favourite vintage shops nearby. After lunch we decided to drive over to Castlemaine for the afternoon. Reubs and I had only ever really passed through Castlemaine and had been meaning to do a proper visit for such a long time. We were a bit worried everything would be closed on a Sunday afternoon but we found plenty of places open and lots of great antique stores to visit. We even spotted a little yarn bombing! Castlemaine is such a lovely little town. There are still plenty more shops and things we didn’t get a chance to visit yesterday, so we plan to go back and spend a bit more time exploring there very, very soon!

I hope you had a marvellous weekend! What did you get up to?

The Easter Long Weekend

The Easter long weekend is always one of my very favourite holidays. I think the combination of crisp autumn weather, chocolate eggs and a little extra time off work is just perfect. And it’s even better if you have a bunch of special people to spend it with!

This year our Easter weekend featured some lovely visitors, a little carnival, a petting zoo, watching fireworks from our verandah, a book fair, a trip to the markets, a picnic in the botanical gardens, homemade treats baked by nice people, tree climbing, cartwheels and lots of time with really, really wonderful friends. It was grand!

I hope your weekend was equally as magical. What did you get up to?

In the Sunshine

We were lucky enough to have a long weekend here in Victoria, so we went to visit my mama. All weekend it was gloriously sunny and very warm. It seems the summer weather isn’t quite finished just yet. We soaked up the early autumn sunshine at the local farmers market, where we picked up some lovely local produce, and spent the rest of the weekend reading, knitting and eating my mum’s delicious banana cake with chocolate icing (one of my favourite things in the whole world!) It was gorgeous.

What did you get up to on the weekend? Whatever you did, we hope it was sunshiney and lovely! Wishing you all a happy, magical, wonderful week!

On the Weekend…

On the weekend…

We spent lots of time with one wonderful old friend, and a bunch of wonderful new friends.

We laughed until our tummies hurt.

We had two picnics in parks with the Daisy dog.

We visited our favourite shop.

We wandered about at the markets and found a dreamy (yellow!) vintage couch and 2 matching chairs (more on that soon!)

We bought an embroidered vintage apron that perfectly matches one of our tea towels (also yellow!)

We made pompoms.

We watched movies from our childhoods.

We ate pizza, mexican food, hot chips, raisin toast and macaroons (though not all at once!)

We (unsuccessfully) tried to make paper mache things using paper doilies and balloons.

We had breakfast for lunch at one of our favourite cafes.

We got a teensy bit sunburnt.

It was a good weekend. A really, really good weekend. Unfortunately we were so busy enjoying the moment and soaking up all that goodness, we barely picked up our camera. That’s ok though. Sometimes you have to take a step back from documenting life and just live it.

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend! What did you get up to?
