I enjoyed a lovely, sunny winters weekend this weekend past. Friday I went in to stay with my sister and her family in Ormond as one of our Aunties was visiting. Always lovely when family get together and this was no exception....lots of catching up to do .
On the Saturday Lee (my sister) took me to the most fabulous market, Magnolia Square Market (I think you can google the website). Lots of beautiful hand made art and clothing, I was so inspired! Bought a few gifts for friends and generally had a lovely day with Lee.
On Sunday my "art pal" Dot came over for a visit. The day was divine, so we headed off to Jindivick (small town near my home with population of maybe 100???). We treated ourselves to to a beautiful lunch at The Barn, a providore type cafe and then later wandered across the road to a tiny cafe where we indulged in the most magnificent cakes!!!!
Dont you think Dot looks very happy below at the prospect of eating her delectable Sticky Date Pudding (I can vouch for the fact it was delectable as I "sampled" it !!!!). Check out the funky coffee mug... gave us a good giggle.
Picture below is Dot and our friend Marianne (horsey friend, not arty friend). These girls were keen to get stuck into their desserts.... although we claimed to be sooooo full after lunch !
And of course, I couldnt miss out could I? Yumbo, yumbo.... chocolate mousse pavlova cake!!! Has to be tried to be believed. My eyes were bigger than my belly and I couldnt eat it all .... but I did make quite a dent for someone who is not usually into dessert. I think we three girls will be visiting this quaint little cafe again.
Photo's are not in the right sequence, but this is The Barn where we had our beautiful lunch....good food, great company and fantastic weather, what more can a girl ask for? This little barn is nestled in the gippsland hills and scenery is fantastic. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
Oh well, suppose I had better post a little bit of art... these little birdies, basking in the winter sunshine are for a Paper Bird Tota swap I am in. Tried my hand at a little fabric/paper with these little fellows. Not the best photo, but I hope the girls like them!
I know I promised my photos of Misty and Traci's classes, but alas no room this post, so will save them for another time (might give me a chance to finish them off too.)
Take care and I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.
big storm rolls through - how we are. made of where we live. how it remains what we are , where our foot palms touch the Earth, how we can go and take it. How the crows will find us.
