Sometimes it is lovely to travel without a focus on finding antiques & just enjoy the real things along the way…
Classic colonial architecture and blue skies made a wander through Battery Point a delightful post brunch necessity…
Peering through the wrought iron fence we hoped that the interior had a good collection of authentic antique finds…like this very original drawers cabinet now in store.
Lots of Earthy, fresh food at the farmers markets & Salamanca Place and Thanks to a little help from our friends we enjoyed great coffee & a late lunch at Pigeon Hole in Hobart. On a cruisy drive down south we stopped at Cygnet and had the yummiest but biggest lunch at the Lotus Eaters cafe … (with eyes bigger than our bellies we had to take desert home which we had reserved upon arrival!)
Again the weather was perfect for our day trip to Mona – a great experience for young & old and one that every Tasmanian we met was happy to talk about.! The rugged natural beauty & the large steel buildings that house this unique collection prove that classical architecture has some strong competition for integrity as the exterior rusts & weathers into the landscape – an inspiring place.. to find out more click here - the museum of old & new art –
i confess, i am a winter lover…my friends woodpile
It was hard not to be just a little envious of what appears to be the good life ! Our friends have lived in Tasmania for a long time now and have tried other locations around the country but i think they are there to stay … its the real thing.
Last but not least a lovely find was the beautifully curated shop in Salamanca called the maker – where i took this picture of the eggs :)
Yes, she is a collector too..
Happy Easter, love a long weekend…
Hoping everyone has a chance to enjoy the Easter break – we will be closed at the warehouse all weekend and Elements i love… in Surry Hills will only be open on Saturday 10-5pm :)
