This is the view outside our cabin
Lovely rolling hills with a creek out the front
JoJo on the verandah
Of course we had to go shopping
My purchases were beaded wooden bracelet and hat from Sac's on Jenkins
Thank you Teresa.......you make us feel very welcome!!!
And next was a wicker basket........'real' shoe brushes and not plastic
some bouquet garni bags and even a little cotton bag to put leftover soap into and use again
Some enamel plates........and the most divine smelling Lavender soap
All from Odgers & McCLelland Exchange Stores
JoJo's choice......a tea towel.....we pay her to wipe the dishes from the dishwasher lol
she then puts it in a purse and saves up for a big shopping trip
some little Cup Cake bases and soap
We went up to The Cottage on the Hill and were greeted by these brightly coloured table and chairs
The Cottage on the Hill is a Patchwork Shop at Nundle which Kerry runs
Kerry also hosts GDITC every year and does an amazing job
Thank you so much Kerry!!!
Every year the gorgeous Chooky aka Donna organizes a Swap with Drinks and Nibbles on the lawn
Chooky and JoJo have a little private swap going on between them
which JoJo just loves being a part of
Thank You Donna for doing this with JoJo!!!
(Love this pic)
JoJo's swap gift from Chooky
JoJo gave Chooky a jar of her favourite Strawberry Jam which I didn't take a picture of
All Swap gifts together
complete with Shez checking them out lol
I received this Primitive Pear pin cushion from Jan along with a pear fat 1/4......a pattern and a little peg holder
JoJo was double lucky along with Chooky as they both received 2 gifts
JoJo's gift here
mmmmm might have to snaffle that fat 1/4
Peg and Dale posing away
The papparazzi were out in full force lol
Now they're checking it all!!!
The food at Mt Misery for dinner that evening
Sea Scallops Mornay (unfortunately I couldn't eat them but they looked good)
A Tomato and Olive Salad
As part of the dinner we were able to go down into the Gold Mine Museum
This has been build over the years but there were some double metal heavy duty doors inside that blocked off the original gold mine which has caved in
I'm a bit of a sucker for a bit of gold and fell in love with the Golden Horse Shoes so I purchased the bottom ones!!!
I'll be back with Saturday's pics and our day with Lynette Anderson!!!
