We are back from a lovely Girls Day in the Country hosted by the gorgeous Kerry
The 2 first things I packed were my sewing basket and JoJo's suitcase
Then off for an overnight stay with my 2 little grandchildren
After 10 hours of driving with stops Mr Armchair, JoJo and I finally arrived at beautiful Nundle!
This is what the road 30k out looked like.......a storm had been and there was a rainbow
Welcoming signs in
We pull up at the cabins and JoJo says 'Mum's friends (aka Girlfriends)
First stop in town was the delightful Odgers & McLelland Exchange Stores established in 1891 full of vintage style cookware, real brooms, enamel etc.......with not a plastic item in stock......suits me right down to the ground LOL!!!
I also bought an Ostrich Feather Duster
something I have been wanting for years and years
I also ended up buying a coffee pot very similar to the ones above except taller
I call it my 'Dances With Wolves' coffee pot
perfect on the stovetop when there is a blackout
Some enamel bakeware perfect for Shepherd's Pie

One of the first Girlfriends I saw was Shez
After that up to Kerry's shop
and for you Geo (no blog)
Wooden table in the shop
Also treated myself to a lovely felt hat
Chookyblue hosted a Make It, Fake It or Buy it Swap
and she opted to have JoJo for a partner
above is what JoJo received
a pencil case, milkbottle lollies (her favourite), some stickers and fluro wand
Thanks so much Chooky!!!
I received from Gail a hand towel embroidered with Grub Roses and soap from Goondowindi
The gift I gave was Buy It.....a book received by Lynda
Finished by Dinner for us here at The Peel Inn......we use to live at Peel outside of Bathurst so nice memories at the sound of this name.
More of the actual day coming!!!
