A day away

Cowboy and I love going to the Blue Mountains - almost as much as we love vintage shopping!

We thought we'd visit the Blackheath Antique Fair and maybe see snow....


Umm, it was so warm you wouldnt know it was snowing there last week! We did see some mist creeping over the mountain ridges but that was about it.

Apparently, the Hydro Majestic is re-opening sometime next year! Lets hope the new managers don't drive it into the ground like they did before. I've always wanted to have high-tea there, and it could be a possible wedding reception place for us.

Did I really say that?



We ended up at the Antique Fair, but it was a real fizzer - lots of ceramic dog statues and over priced bric a brac. We loved the drive though, so it was all good in the end.

Our favourite cafe (The Red Door) in Leura has gone down hill - very slow service and not a great atmosphere anymore. I wish I had found out about The Garage before hand, it looks so cool! Very retro - next time for sure...

Cowboy deciding whether to try another place for a coffee















Coming into work today and seeing what was in the mail definitely made up for the lack of vintage finds on the weekend - check these out! 1930s-1950s Stitchcrafts, a bumper issue of Handknit Fashions from Bucilla (1930s) and Good Needlework (1938). Once I get the watermark thing sorted i'll list some select patterns.
