On Saturday, A and i went for a drive which is what we do when neither of us can face up to the list of stuff only the weekend enables us to action. We drove out to Nambour and then came back through Montville. Found this groovy store in Nambour called
for all y'all 80's fans out there this record player was 'totally narly'. I've seen one in a movie before i'm sure of it - maybe 'back to the future'?
Downstairs little rooms shot off in different directions full of vintage fashion, accesories, homewares and a snippet of furniture. Worth a browse next time you're in the hood. There used to be other antique stores up there but all i saw were empty shopfronts.
What i did see is this Old fella. Don't see enough of these red and white stripes these days. Cracker.
This Art Deco building is being painted black in case you can't tell - will look a gazillion times better once finished. It looked so good in real life compared to this photo. Black really is beautiful.
The drive up to Montville saw us come across this lovely old tennis court, the fencing was in excellent condition
Complete with a little spectators hut.
These purple trees are in bloom everywhere up there - very pretty
we took the back road down the mountain, which you can access on the main drag of Montville next to the school.
and took different turns here and there and ended up in lovely little Eudlo
That's Eudlo above. Look at that lone petrol bowser. Just adorable.
We also drove through Mooloola which had a store that shocked me called Vicious Vintage. Shocked me because it's the last thing i expected to come across in a little valley town, and also because the bloody thing was closed by 12:30 on a Saturday! Ugh. I'm going back.
Something that was achieved ... our second herb/vege garden that has tomatoes, lettuce, peas and some other stuff in it. I'm very excited about nurturing this, that gate thing is for the peas to climb up. We now have 2 old baths with herbs in them complete with the signs so i know what's what. All hell will break loose if a possum so much as eyeballs this tub!
My mother packed up some pieces of mine still at the family home including my cross stitch case i used when i was in primary school, this was still in the box ... It's love that makes a house a home. Awwww....
I hear cross stitch has been making some kind of comeback. Maybe this is a sign? My parents may like another bath towel each for christmas with their name's cross stitched on it like i did for them circa '88'. I was obssessed with making things. Their bedroom was riddled with plaque things similar to the one above. What parent's have to go through. All stopped when i hit great 8. Totes not cool anymore to 'stitch' in highschool!
