Happy Birthday.





Last weekend S and I drove down to visit my family who live in a small country town called York, which is about an hour and a half drive from Perth. It’s a nice break from the city, and even though Perth isn’t exactly bustling it feels good to not have any phone service, not use the internet and wear old farm clothes for a while!

While I was in York I was given a bag stuffed full of clothing that previously belonged to my mums, friends, mother. As you could imagine half the pieces dated back to the 50’s and some were even hand made. Picture my excitement when I dug into the bag and found not one, but four pairs of shorts! They are all high waisted, with intricate detailing and they fit like a treat. These green ones were my pick for the day and I can’t wait to show you the others.

After watching me cavort around in my shorts the family decided to trek into town for breakfast at the JAH- ROC Mill Gallery. JAH- ROC is an old flour mill which has been turned into an art gallery showcasing jewellery, wood furniture and art. It’s a beautiful building and when I lived in York I would often wander around the levels admiring the work; and now that my dad stocks his wood furniture at JAH-ROC I like the building even more! (The chair above is his)

My lovely weekend was complete when S surprised me with this darling rose ring he had purchased from the gallery. Hope you all had a good one!
