Hobart Life & more op shop finds

What a perfect Hobart weekend we've had. It all started with Tim taking the kids on the critical mass bike ride Friday evening, while I wondered around town child-free. We then lazed around Salamanca square for a while before taking 2 tired children home to their beds. The weather was perfect for the one year old birthday party which mostly involved laying under a walnut tree eating cake, sipping Champagne & homemade ginger beer and swinging a hammock filled with children.

I rode the kids into the Sustainability Expo on Sunday morning for a look around before we met up with Tim & headed down to the local Stiener school spring fair for some yummy lunch and more general mooching about. Not a lot of planting went on but really the weather was not that suitable so Max & I will do some today when Addie sleeps as it's nice & mild for young plants to go in. The warm weather over the weekend also meant Addie got to wear the top I made for her birthday & just a pair of trainer pants - she is obsessed with the pottie at the moment.


In addition to the horse from the last post, here are the other op shop goodies found last week:

Another table cloth destined to be used for clothing, maybe even a skirt for myself.

this great playrug/quilt

A cross stitch book. I'm not into cross stitch but the patterns were very cute!



And my favourite.....

Ooh, cooking with champagne, that's my kind of cookbook!

Sadly missed the expo - just not enough hours in the day...
