OK so i have been a little absent this week but i have the most valid excuse eva !!
I have been preparing and spending the weekend at Spinning Camp, it was the most awesome experience EVA.
We crafted, we giggled, we drank, tea ( and wine and scotch??) and learnt new things about ourselves, each other and our common love fibre craft :)

Picture a Day - Day 15

Today was a delightful day - G, L, JD and I, took a leisurly drive to Yamba and no trip to Yamba is complete without a trip to my favorite diner/candy store "Sweet Vintage", this shop is a 50's buffs haven and every child's dream come true. Some of my favorite things about Sweet Vintage are: the old fashions paper straws, the booth seating, the fantastic service, the cherry cola and the Dark Chocolate Kahlua Barrels ( that i got a half dozen of to bring home!!)

Picture a Day - Day 13 and 14

This week was a week of awesome scores and finds.

I have, for my entire life wanted a "Globite" school case, i remember being sooooo jealous of the kids at school that had them and i had a daggy back-pack, well i finally have a globite case in my life, and i was so overjoyed by what my Mum had hidden within it - a ton of Knitting, Crochet and Tatting Books !!! some crochet cottons and the best thing ever ( next the the globite case) A HAT BLOCK !!! - I LOVE MY MUM she is the BEST!!!!! and guess where she got all this Fab stuff - the tip !!! that's right someone was just throwing this stuff away !!!!!! how CRAZY is that !!!
i also went a little nuts this week at the local fabric stores, i think i paid someones wages with all the fabric i bought, no intentions or plans i just couldn't leave it sitting in the store :)

Picture a Day - Day 5

My dad collects old stuff, he tells people that's why he has my mum, he also thinks he is a funny man, his sense of humour is very dry and he is very subtle in his wit, you often don't know you have been offended until much later, he is also a man of mono-emotion, he's never said "i love you" and his hugs are brief and stiff.
It has taken me a long time to develop my relationship with my father, i asked him when he was driving me to my wedding ceremony to tell everyone in he speach that he loved me, when the time came to deliver his speach he said " Lisa has asked me to tell you all that i love her, i think she is clever enough to already know that and that i think she is OK and that she has made an goos selection in Glenn as a husband". We now have a quiet understanding i know that he loves me, he will probably never say it, but i tell him often i love him and often force a hug out of him :)
Todays pictures are a relections and just a glimpse into my fathers bizzare collection of old wares
Swords and Walking Sticks - should always be stored side by side

Shaving Stand complete with brush - in the background a stoneware boiler

Stunning etched glass and hand painted Lamp

and one of my favorites - an old Singer Sewing Machine
