My heart has been breaking for Japan. My thoughts are with you all.
With all the disasters that have been happening of late, I think it's a reminder to live each each day to the fullest and to make time for those you love because you never know, right? With that thought, Voyt and I spent the day at Mt. Tamborine today.
Between rain showers, we strolled along The Gallery Walk in the morning. The first shop we found was an interesting vintage shop and I couldn't resist these little forks. I think the appeal was that my mother had similar ones (in blue, I think) when I was a kid. Nostalgia is a powerful thing.
I love the original packaging. It reads "High Class - Stainless Steel" and "1 doz" as opposed to 12.
Dozens were so popular back then, weren't they? I do like the colours although not a combination that you see too often.
We lunched at the Polish Place mainly because my husband was nostalgic for Pierogi (Polish dumplings). I thought they were a little overpriced but we were probably paying a surcharge for the magnificent valley views.
Or perhaps for the company of these Lorikeets?
My other vintage find was this knitted turquoise cotton top from Vinnies at Paddington last week. An absolute bargain at $4, I couldn't go wrong. It was perfect for a Queensland Autumn's day on the mountain.
