Rob has just had some time off, two weeks in fact. Which seems almost unbelievable after so long holding on & all the "beginning all over again" business of a year or two ago. I had, had that silly tooth thing still going on in the first week so we decided to postpone our one night away...very good call as it turned out, since the week we were to have gone away we might have very well found ourselves blown off the road, such was the force of the rampaging winds that blew through this way for several days. We puttered off to Palmerston North on Tuesday for a night & had a lovely gentle time visiting at all the op shops, secondhand places & antique shops along the way.
Woodville is a small place but has a number of great secondhand shops, including the Woodville Mart, which has long been a favourite of ours. It seems that they have recently taken custody of a large extended doll family. They were a little shy (the doll's) but eventually conceded to a photo or two.
Urban Charm of George Street still going strong & in fine form. Heather had recently bought some lovely things from a local "mansion" including this pretty bed canopy.
Street stalls are not a particularly common sight in New Zealand so we were so delighted to stop & chat a while & leave clutching a brown paper twist of hot chestnuts. They also had a few other delights like these toffeed almonds.
The sun has since returned & the camelias are beginning to bloom.
I'm still having a lovely time with Pinterest..thought you might like these thoroughly innovative chairs...now that IS imagination! Russian what's more.
Have a lovely week dear ones.
