sweet old-school sewing project
such gorgeous colours and they were made in Australia.
atop Marcia Bedspread (think: "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!") available to buy soon.
"Lazy Addie will you get up?"
my big girl and our (equally lazy) loyal hound
Adelaide (again) and a trio of Mary's
I wonder if the water in the Lourdes bottle really is holy? It could be ordinary old tap water for all I know...hmmmm...if someone was tricking surely they would fill it to the top...or would that be too obvious?
not so cute...
have you ever seen anything like this before?
it's a Tasmanian Early Settler Apple Doll
(yes. that's Lucy Violet in the background)
A face only a mother could love!
"there is none other quite like it"...is that a good, or a bad thing?
Here's a pic of her sister
She's the pretty one in the family! B****! That's why she's famous and lives in the Victorian Museum...pic from and more info here
Honestly, these are scary dolls...the stuff of nightmares!
Not what I'd choose as a memento of a lovely holiday in Tassie, that's for sure...give me a tea towel any day...
Have a lovely weekend x
