Do you remember the times?

I grew up in a country town in NSW.
There wasn't much to do as a kid.

I remember every year our town would hold a festival.
There would be a carnival, rides and (my favourite) - a street parade.
Everybody came and supported the community and it was amazing fun!

Over the weekend we went to a small town in NSW called "Casino" for the annual "Beef Week" festival.

I just had so much fun!
It reminded me of my old days back home.

Here are some pics.

My favourite is me with the "gals" - beef week queen finalists. Bless.

This kind of thing just wouldn't happen in a big city.
Barricades would need to be erected for health & safety.
You would need to park miles away & catch public transport.
There would be no "hanging" over verandahs of the local pubs to get a better view of the parade.

So here's proof the "old days" still exist out there.

Happy Monday!

Well it's official.
We have sold our house.
As some of you may know, our house has been on & off the market for a few years now.
We were not going to sell unless we got what we wanted.
And we did.
So now my friends...... I am searching for a new home! How exciting.
We have also moved Fabric Traders into a commercial warehouse space.
So I have been so busy of late.
Hope you are all having a good Monday.

Inspired Today By......

Although I can't disclose just yet, my life is changing this year. 
I knew 2013 was going to be an eventful year. 
And there is lot's more to come.
Can talk more about that next week.
I needed some SERIOUS inspiration.
Has anyone seen Kirstie Allsopp's new DVD  "Kirstie's Vintage Home"?
My friends at Roadshow Entertainment sent me a copy last week to review.
So inspiring.  
She has the knack for creating beautiful spaces that's for sure!
Take a look at some rooms she has created. 
All shown step by step with some great projects in between. 
It has my stamp of approval.
Have a great week.
