Relaxing weekend



Hi all...long time no blog....this weekend I have spent a lovely relaxing time around the area of Daylesford in Victoria.  I drove up early Friday morning as I had booked a day at the Hepburn Bath House and Spa...starting with a couple of hours in the bath house and sanctuary, then lunch and after lunch, a 1 hour massage....I was so very relaxed after this "self care"...something I haven't done before....Then on Saturday I spent the day enaging in one of my favourite past-times...stitching...at the Daylesford Craft Experience at this gorgeous place...the 3 designers who had provided patterns for us all were Melly (of Melly and Me), Jodie (of Vintage RicRac) and Annette (Eriksson).. each had designed 3 patterns of very different styles, but I think you would be hard pressed not to find something to ones liking....
These photos are of Lake Daylesford and I was able to walk to the lake from back of the studio where I was staying

On Sunday I went and had a look at an antique place on the outskirts of town which was mentioned on this site earlier in the week and I thought I would take the opportunity to see it for myself....what an amazing collection of antiques, furniture and art work....I will post some more photos throughout the week....



Isn't this sculpture fun?

After I left Daylesford I headed to Castlemaine where I just had to visit this shop...called "Habadash"....it sells vintage and antique buttons, lace, ribbons and other wonderful sewing ephemera....these are my purchases from there...

Hey there Lisa! It was so nice to see you!!!! I hope you ended up having a great time Saturday night - didn't see you at the market, Lark or shops. Hope it was a good one and I wish I had have had time to stop at Haberdash! Jealous much!

Hi Lisa,
Sounds like a great time away. I LOVE that sculpture you saw, and the strawberry design on that little 'thing' you bought. Really sounds like a weekend to be jealous of! Can't wait to see what you made...
