Tamborine Treasures

I promised I would post some pictures of the treasures I got on the Women's retreat....
These are my favourite things...

I have wanted a clock for a long time. I loved this one when I saw it a few months ago. I was umming & ahhhing about it. But decided to wait until the Women's retreat, if it was stil there then, I would get it. This isn't where I will put it, but I just wanted to show y'all how it goes....



The same shop had this little sign which I decided would look great on my deck. And it does...

And I couldn't come home without a gift for the kids. These Koala's were just too gorgeous to leave behind! They have been oddly named by my children as "Connor" & "Ella"... I wonder why ;)

These look great. Your kids did well to get presents for you going away for just a few days - they will want you to go away more often at this rate :)

I love the clock. That is really nice!

Love those koalas, they are a classic. It reminds me of SPorting Billy, which was big when i was really little.

Those finds are fantastic. I so love the Imperial Grain Co sign - bet it looks great on your deck. And the bears are too cute.

Hi, Jan! Just stopping in from SITS. Love the great finds! I'm not sure that I could have passed the koalas on to the kids though... they are cute enough for myself! JK. Of course I would have done the good-mom thing, even though bad-mom would have been right there whispering in my ear, "you want them." I love the clock and the oats sign. I can tell that we are similar decorators! Enjoy your Friday!

Nice stuff!

I'm pretty sure I have patterns for those koalas. They're not too hard. My pattern doesn't have the eye-patch though - that was someone being creative!

Love the clock and the koalas are too adorable (almost as cute as little cotton rabbits toys !!)

The sign is great too, my mum adores all that stuff, you'd love her kitchen ! :P
