It's here.  Christmas 2014. Goodness I really don't know how.  Exhausted as usual.  




So finally a little bit of Christmas arrived in my home. Better late than never.

Wishing everyone a lovely day. Happy Christmas.

Hobart....


Just spent a lovely week in Tasmania with my beautiful girl.  This week was our special celebration for finishing school.



We did a wonderful day trip to Bruny Island and sampled some beautiful food the island has to offer. The Day Tour group we used was great with a really good guide, Tim, who provided us with a lovely day out.



We enjoyed a really lovely day driving up through the middle of Tasmania and down along the east coast. So nice to wander in towns without any time constraints. Beautiful little antique shops and lots of bits and pieces to see, ducks to feed and coffee to drink.  



The boats on the harbour are just beautiful. There were two different cruise ships in during our time there as well.  Fish and chips by the sea. Lovely. 



A day at the Salamanca Markets was most enjoyable. We also found a really lovely farmers market as well. Truly delightful. 




The historic buildings and bridges in Tasmania are just wonderful. I love wandering the streets just looking at the buildings. We stayed in a delightful cottage built in 1890. A lovely little kitchen and lounge, a claw foot bath and a steep staircase to the delightful bedrooms in the attic. 



The Royal Botanic Gardens in Hobart are just beautiful. Filled with beautiful plants. I particularly enjoyed the roses and the beautiful border plantings. The vegetable patch was gorgeous. 



I think one of the loveliest places we visited though was Providore in Hobart. What an amazing store concept. Beautiful coffee, food and gifts all in an amazing setting.  

Absolutely love Tasmania and hope to visit again soon.

A Little Giveaway






I'd love to host a little giveaway here as a thank you for any who still check in to see if there are any happenings on my blog.


I have been so quiet I know.


I had a bit of a drama with the delivery of my beautiful magazines. Thankfully all sorted now. But to cut a long story short I ended up with some double ups. New and never opened ready to share with three of you.





There is the October issue and November issue of our lovely Australian Country Style and also the October /November issue of Donna Hay


So if you are interested leave me a message, make a link in your own blog and if your over on Facebook make a mention there too. 


Open to overseas friends too.
