Today was really hot and most people were taking cover amongst the coolness of the inside rooms where this lovely old print is displayed,it is so much the epitomy of sweetness,the innocence of childhood.The very large pink depression glass jug alongside is fantastic, and not very often seen amongst collections of pink glass.

These pics taken today are just some of the lovely bits and pieces that have arrived over the last few days.The writing set is just gorgeous,and would suit a mans domain or a more feminine room. We have not had much carnival glass of late, so now have various pieces that all look so great together, a shame to separate them into different homes ! The brass folding screen is just fantastic, it would be from the 1940's era,a time of elegance and imaginitive decorating themes.The top picture is of a lovely pine glass doored dresser, with lots of room for displaying all of your precious china, having glass doors would also make it suitable for quilts, books or anything you would like!The cutting boards are in three sizes, and are able to be hung for easy storage or display. The frilly aprons spilling out from the drawers are all new, but so 1950's,very much in vogue again.

I am afraid today came and went without an opportunity to take photos of new stock that has been delivered throughout the last few days.We had a very big day and late deliveries to do, so instead I have posted a photo I took a few days ago of one of my very favourite cast iron statues kneeling at the end of our courtyard.

I have relented and put out a few early Xmas trinkets. These particular ones are not necessarily strictly for Xmas, I love the silver hearts for anytime,and the friendship balls can also be given throughout the year. The tradition is that a small gift ( i.e. jewellery,keepsakes etc.) are enclosed in the silver ball that is hinged to open out, and presented to a friend, who in turn uses the friendship ball to pass on another treasured item. There are also shiney silver Xmas trees and angels in three different sizes.

The coolness of today was very welcome after yesterdays 34 degrees. Even though that is not terribly hot for Mildura its just a bit early and we're still not quite ready :) It was a good opportunity for tidying up and rearranging the courtyard,we sold a couple of tables on the weekend and so I was able to re-decorate.It ended up looking a little like a farmyard for a short time as I was spring cleaning the pigs and sheep, but they are back in their rightful places again now.
