Looking inside

Smits & Bits is a place I never get tired of. Every time we were in Sassafras ( and often is an under statement) we always visited this gift specialty shop…and without fail I always walk out with something in my hand. But today let me walk around to show the bigger items from their…

Benches and Chairs

Things to see in Melbourne

“Wherever you are – be all there.”— Jim Elliot First stop, as I always do, is visit Hosier Lane.

Doors can also be found amidst all the…

Walking to Get Coffee

“An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.” – Henry David Thoreau Everyone was still asleep…the sun light was just starting to peep though the clouds. My husband, my son, my daughter in law were all fast asleep but Pat and I decided to go for a walk around Daylesford and have…

The City of Casey

The Plaza in Bunjil Place has been transformed into an immersive garden with oversized sculptures amidst swirls of edible mist. If only I could share with you how sweet the place smelt. (Bunjil Place is a creative hub in the city of Casey’s southeastern suburb in Victoria Australia) This is part of the Casey Cornucopia…
