I have almost forgotten....

...how to do a post on the blog - it is 20 days since the last one and you get out of the routine of it very easily, but here goes.....

April was quite busy - Easter saw Marion producing the goods with this lovely basket of hot cross buns ( I think a couple disappeared before I managed to take a photo). Her basket was returned to her full of spinach, beetroot, parsley and an apple from our garden.
Not much of an exchange but if she can't eat sweet things it was about as good as I could do and I also made her a basket of egg shaped bacon & chive scones.Easter Saturday, husband and I went to check out a shed filled with secondhand goods and junk. I came home with a basket full of old knobs, chain & door hardware, the old metal dish with handle and 2 unused very old ledgers. The dolls head and salt shakers were ebay purchases.
I love these! Frozen German dolls heads and salt/pepper shakers in their original box.
As I said, April has been busy......we've had 4 family birthdays in April - 2 nieces, my father and my brother in law - and husband and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary.
To celebrate, we went to see a movie - appropriately - this one!!!!

We went to the drive-in (in Adelaide) with the cherubs and while they sat in the front seats so they could see better, husband and I sat in the back.

We have finally had rain. This was the scene from our balcony last Saturday - the golf course was nearly covered in water. The rain continued for a few days, off and on, and now we can see green grass sprouting.

Woohoo, good to see you back, have been waiting!!!! Love all your lovely goodies that you found in the shed and ebay. I'm dying to see what you come up with for the door knob surrounds, they look very interesting. Happy 19th wedding anniversary. Its amazing how we celebrate with our children isn't it. We celebrated our 20th a couple of years ago over in Thailand and instead of having a romantic night out we spent the night in our hotel room as our boys had caught a tummy bug that day...well one was in full swing and the other thinking about it....not nice. Glad yours was better.
