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)

I love your description of this shop being "clasped between houses".

And a cute little sign it is! I like the stylish finch!

That is a great sign! And you could have posted it to Ruby Tuesday, too :)

Sounds interesting. If I were there I might checked out her boutique. :)

Sometimes the best little shops are stashed back away from all the rest. Maybe this is one of those. I would hope so.

That is a lovely and sweet name for a fashion boutique!

Dinah said...

I agree, if I was into fashion boutiques I would visit that one.
The Ruby Finch is the sparrow that God painted.
