So Many Ideas……….
Hi Vintage Lovers,

We are still on our road trip but on our last leg now. We have been back to Ballarat and are now in Geelong for a few days, then on to Mount Gambier before coming home.
 While in Ballarat again we spent a lot of time at Sovereign Hill, which was just fantastic for gathering ideas for The Old Croft. I am coming home with so many ideas for our old lady and her garden. Too many to count.

The gardens were fabulous not only in Sovereign Hill but around Ballarat also. I cannot wait to get home to get started in the garden. The hedges, weeping trees and maples in the gardens look fantastic.

The gardens were full of  all my favourite plants, roses, aggies, clivias and hydrangeas to name a few.

I have so many ideas and thoughts for our garden buzzing around in my head right now. It's hard to think straight! 

They make and sell quality items such as cookware, tinware, and blacksmithing, using tools and techniques just like it was done in the mid 1800's. We couldn't resist buying a few items.

We are coming home with two of these brackets to create a shelf above Agatha the Aga stove..........

and some S hooks for hanging on the old ladder in the laundry. I bought the old ladder earlier this year and have been waiting to find the right hooks to suit it before hanging it up in our laundry.

I am keen to create a similar look to this..........

We all loved Sovereign Hill and Ballarat and have bought a membership to Sovereign Hill to support them and as an added bonus we receive free entry for a year and 10% off all purchases within Sovereign Hill. Yay!!!!!
I can't wait to go back.
Thanks for popping in, Have a fantastic week.
Mel xx
