How nice to get a couple of parcels in the
post this week, just what I needed to cheer myself up!
I got another antique book for my slowly growing collection...1711 and it had a bonus french religious medal on it!
30 art deco christmas cards in their envelopes from 1930. I'm going to make a garland of them for next Christmas
A couple of finds in country shops...a sweet pink and gilt book for 20c...just right to use for putting vases on
antique shoe stretchers from Fortnum and Mason
I could take dozens of pics of the bushfire devastation as we drove around...completely surrounding the town is black and the main road to the city is still blocked....but I don't want to,I just want to shut it out .. so just pics from my back porch. The green forest beyond is burnt
before and after
The first thing I did after coming home from evacuating is pick a bowl of roses from my garden which could have been lost to us
the garden and lawn are very green as we left sprinklers and hoses running everywhere when we evacuated
