The pies alone are worth the drive, but there are lots of little towns to explore close-by, including York which is the oldest inland town in Western Australia (1831) I bought five sweet vintage paintings from a little second-hand/junk/antique shop in York, I'll show you them when I've had time to take a snap.
We ate our pies beside this little home-made memorial (it is Foundation Day in Western Australia today btw, but we always eat our Bakers Hill pies here... just a lucky coincidence today)
it was built by local school children in 1929 to celebrate the centennary of Western Australia
it has a sweet naivete which I think is really special
Now, as far as other treasures are concerned, I've only one thing to show and tell today. Yep you read that right. One thing! I just haven't had alot of time to poke around in op-shops this week. Sniff. It's a beauty though and a really special addition to my collection of Religionalia...
it's almost a Valentine to Jesus!
Jesus is plastic, but I'm wondering if he's a newer addition because the rest of it is much older and I can just make out a faint outline where something else may have been embroided...look at those delicate and very fragile little flowers
it is missing its glass but I'm off to the picture framers tomorrow to have it replaced.
and as I said to the lady at Vinnies, I think he was waiting for me!
And that's "all" I've got today, apart from t.towel and a couple of fab pics from Life in Australia...
Evening drink, John Witzig
look at this bloke's wonderful hands...
Beer garden, Surfer's Paradise
Today's tea towel just happens to be from York
how did I manage that???
Oh and I nearly forgot to mention something very important:
