Glamping on the Great Ocean Road

We’ve just returned from a long weekend of glamping [glamorous camping] at Anglesea on the Great Ocean Road. Anglesea is a sleepy seaside village with a lovely swimming beach and lots of family fun activities and attractions.

Last weekend as I was meandering the aisles with my Padre coffee, I came across a selection of Robert Gordon’s Parisian market bags. I have been searching for a practical and stylish basket for months! [...]

Happy Friday to Y’all

We’ll place each of the bottles on the [...]

Happy Friday Everyone

I hope you have a wonderful weekend with your family and friends. This weekend I plan to catch up with my old friends, Susan & Jon, take my daughter to her dance class, browse my local vintage market and work on some crafty party projects. Be good…or be good at it. Source
