Home Again

Hi everyone I hope your having a wonderful weekend!

We had a fabulous couple of weeks away visiting family in Piction & friends in 
Bowral. I know I promised lots of autumn photos, but as usually happens I end 
up being too busy chatting & enjoying myself & forget to take are 
a couple I did manage to capture.

One of our most memorable cafe visits took place in Piction at R.CoffeeCo.
Decorated in a minimalist industrial style and with a simple backboard menu...

Also selling a small seasonal supply of micro herbs, organic sourdough breads & 
freshly grown vegetables. Their variety of pastries & cakes changes each day
and always serving fabulous coffee, perfect for the cold autumn days...

A highlight of our days in Bowral was a visit to Dirty Jane's Emporium & 
Antique Market - over 50 stall holders gathered under one roof selling 
every possible retro, antique & vintage treasure you can imagine....

The warehouse is so huge it is a bit overwhelming and you definately need
to allow plenty of time. I managed to buy a beautiful lace edged vintage
tablecloth but could have purchased so much more! 
A revisit in August is being planned with lots of room in the car to 
bring more goodies home...


  1. Welcome back, Kerry!

    Mmmmmm I see Madeleines yum yum......

    Sounds like you had a lot to see and do!

  2. Hello Kerry! What amazing photos of your trip! For some reason, I did not know you lived in Australia! It is always something I have to consciously remember that for you all, it is fall now! {I forget these things!} The fall colors are gorgeous by the way in the pictures, and the antique market looks like it is amazing! I can see why you will be saving plenty of room in your car for the next visit there! :)

    I hope you are doing well, and having a wonderful weekend so far! :)


  3. Hey Kerry!
    So glad you had a good trip, and are back home safe and sound!
    What lovely photos! The restaurant looks awesome and so does
    Dirty Janes!! I would probably want to buy up the whole place, too!!

    Hope you have a fabulous week, and get settled back into your routine.
    Hugs and joy to you!
