It is always a lovely weekend to spend with family and friends a time to show how much we love our country and a time to give thanks for our good health and happiness This is one of the "LUCKY COUNTRIES"
Yes we are content my husband Rob and I and so for the three days we will be busy as the bees in our garden doing only what we feel like doing and enjoying every moment.
Yesterday we went to the "must do!" Fryers town Antique fair
We spend one of the three days there and enjoy every moment well we did find some great "bits" and darling hubby Rob carried the lot.
Here he is out the front of one of the sites - there are approx. 300 dealers sites, And there was everything you can imagine or ever wish to collect.
This fair started 33 years ago just to make enough to keep the old hall (you can see it up the back of this photo) repaired now it is a "must do" for us collectors. The stall holders come from around Australia or just up the road. It was great fun, even if it was so very dusty and hot.
We went back to our car and dropped off some bits and sat in the cool and ate lunch before heading back in to see more, and more, and more! (smiles)
Here I am looking at a lovely cottage cup & saucer but put it back to see what was in the next tent. I was like a child in a candy store my husband said..........."Well!" I said "I'm not like that I do have control you know Rob" (he just laughed!) secretly I think he possibly was right. I had such a good time but did not drink enough and came home with a headache as well as some treasures.
I found some lovely pieces at a great price. Five pieces of bell china including the sugar bowl (with the little orange flowers) a Meakin trio at the back with the word mother on it, also two cup & saucers Johnson bros. with pink blossoms, a table spoon in silver, four lovely old dessert spoons, two jam or sugar spoons and a set of cake forks. Also the great 1940's wooden chopping board and the poka dot tea set pieces................then I got. (smiles)
Some vintage linen..............Two stunning large white table cloths and a lovely embroidered one and a nice embroidered tray cloth a land painted 1930's little face powder compact. O! and two lovely vintage 1950's sewing patterns that will find their way into my eBay auctions.
Then I found one other little piece for a dear collector this pieces was a whole $2.00 so had to get it as a give yes for you Gina (smiles)
It is rather cute! isn't it?
My dear Husband didn't find anything he loves books and looked at them all but his passion is masonic and freemasonry and they are very hard to find. He did see some flounder fishing great and was tempted but then chose not to get it.
Today is the second day of the three day "AUSTRALIA DAY HOLIDAY" and we are just chasing family on the Internet for our family tree, watching the cricket and having a huge big roast lunch.
Tomorrow we are out all day visiting grandchildren and their mum's & dad's lunch at one family and Dinner at another that will be fun.
So............HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY to my dear Aussie blogger friends and a Truly lovely day to those over seas trying to keep warm.
This is my Sunday! full of Holidays fun!
