We have had some beautiful days here in Mount Martha. Blue skies and sunshine. Soo.. beautiful. Everyones gardens are starting to show signs of Spring (1st September). It can be a beautiful time of year.

I have been doing a bit of Op Shop shopping this week and this is what I found. 2 gorgeous cups & saucers. Just love the green on the trio and the pink and gold cup and saucer is so pretty. I thought I would use the old Avon aqua powder bowl to put some buttons or ribbons in on my desk. The 2 little doves are soo.. pretty too. The little pink Pin Dish will also come in handy on my desk. As for the pink glass jug I am sure to find a use for that.

Tomorrow I will mail my Cotton n Candy Swap goodies to Liz. Trying to think of goodies to complete the package has been fun. It was agreat idea for a swap Shannon.

Such pretty things. I had to read the line twice about spring. We are just starting Autumn/Fall season. Oh how wonderful to be able to look at the blogs from my Australian friends and see spring time popping in!

Hi Alison
I tried to email you through my blog and it didn't work, didn't even realise you had a blog, oh another one for me to look at how wonderful!, and you only live around the corner from us, don't forget to make yourself known if you go up to the Antique centre and Tony's working away in his little corner.
Love your treasures you found
