Good Morning

Good Morning. It is Good Friday morning here in calm and tranquil Brighton and it is my darling Sam's birthday - Happy Birthday Sweet Heart.
I am sitting down to a Hot Cross Bun and Coffee and am about to bake the birthday cake.

Before I do I thought that I might show you a little glimpse of the antique shops that I visited yesterday. We had such a lovely day and saw so many lovely things. I almost bought a cupboard but decided that if it was still there when I go back in 3 weeks that it was meant to be. I did buy a lovely cut glass milk jug and a few other bits and pieces which I will show you at another time.
Here is a peek of some of the loveliness of the antique shops at New Norfolk.

This sewing display was huge and the photo's do not capture it's true beauty - I stood there in awe.........

Some of the gorgeous period and colonial furniture

More loveliness

Some of the dinnerware and kitchen items were just too lovely for words..............

We had a fantastic day which we will repeat as we didn't see all of the shops - There are so many of them. Have a great Friday - I will see you back here tonight when I announce the winner of my "Lucky Draw" - Good Luck ..............

Happy birthday to Sam!

Here in the US I've never actually seen a hot cross bun, so that was kind of neat.

I Love all of the old button cards etc. I have some that are quite old from my grandmother.

Lookslike you had a great day. The antique shops look beautiful. You could get lost for hours in shops like that.
Have a great birthday SAM and enjoy mum birthday cake.

Have a great Easter Fiona.
