A lovely weekend with relatives....

Tom and I had his parents stay with us towards the end of the week and on the weekend, they were up from Hobart and we really enjoyed having them, it was such a pleasure.

                                 We mingled amongst antiques at Leven Antiques.....

           Tom's dad loves old bookstores so we were in luck at Ulverstone.....

                        Tom and I love to record all our fav recipes in this folder I got him one Xmas, to the right of the book is an apron my mum made Tom that he loves, isn't the material so suiting to the kitchen!

                      I made carrot cake, the icing I have to admit is absolutely scrummy..............

                   These little "Lavender shoes" are leather and were a bargain they were $160 down to $50, I couldn't leave them there at that price........ (that's my excuse anyway!!)

                 and this other beauty is a bag my mother-in-law bought me from Cotton On as a thankyou for making her a crochet beannie to take back to Hobart for her cold walks she enjoys........

            Many a cuppa was had while we spent time chatting and eating.........

              I did also learn to knit which I will show you in my next Blog!
