Yes, a trip to one of my favourite areas, Paddington in Brisbane. My daughter and I went to check out the Antique centre as well as some other stores.
Once again I came away with some little treasures. One new section since my last visit there was a store selling buttons, 60’s and 70’s style patterns, threads, and lots of other sewing treasures.
I could have spent a lot of time ( and a small amount of money) there, but unfortunately the owner of this store was having coffee with her friend, so wasnt too keen to provide service. Hopefully next time I will visit at a more convenient time.
What I did buy from her were the crocheting cotton and the 2 spools.
Elsewhere in the centre I found the piece of vintage lace and the bluebird doyley.
The little glass container had a ticket on it saying it was from the 1920’s. Not sure if it is but I liked it so it came home with me also.
These 3 doyleys came home from Tassie with me. My collection is slowly growing – will have to decide soon what I want to do with them.
Harry’s Mum was a bit worn out so tried having a rest. She scored plenty of goodnight kisses – or was it a ploy to wake her up? I think that was it.
But he allowed me to read him his bedtime stories that night.
They are such precious times.
