We spent the weekend in Sydney, which was just as well because the storms here were, apparently, horrendous!
I was happily fossicking in the Antique & Collectables centre near my son's place.
Bought a retro yellow vase ....
and a length of retro navy floral crepe de chine from the 60s ..
inspired by a dress I saw in Marc's ...
It will be off to the sewing nest for this piece.
Enjoyed brunch at Grandma's Little Bakery ..
which was also delightfully retro, from its red spot tablecloths,
to the kitchenalia decor..
I think this is a washing machine. Any ideas?
And they sold this little specialty -
Quince Jam, perfect to make the Christmas Cake featured
by Sanda, of Halcyon Days.
Go and read her wonderful recipe in a recent post.
We spent some time in the city, at the Queen Victoria Building.
Unfortunately I managed to make her sceptre look like a long pipe.
Her Majesty might turn in her grave at this outrage!
Our son and his Irish lass fed us a veritable feast ..
Just look at this baked cherry cheesecake.
Reader, it was Amazing!!
Naturally, we toasted the arrival in Canada of our new grandson.
He has a wonderful name which works well in both English and French.
Just like his big brother.
This is probably the first and last photo of him I will show and tell,
taken at about 3 hours after birth.
Isn't he beautiful?
Have a delightful and safe week.
