AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Blue Salt and Pepper Art


Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ These are my blue salt and pepper shakers.
I bought them at Horsham in the north-west of Victoria many years ago as a souvenir when I travelled by car from Adelaide to Sydney.
I have always kept them as an ornament. They seem too pretty to use.

These might be the prettiest salt and pepper shakers I've ever seen! I wouldn't use them either.

I love the Delft blue...my memories are strung out all over my house, some things you just have with you forever, there is a beauty there that just won't accept parting, for this parting would be such sweet sorrow for sure.

I'm just a hopelessly romantic junk collector from way back...I know you know what I mean! Ha!

Hugs...s
