Weekend reading

Care for an adventure? This couple have just bought their new home. It's old, run down and needs a lot of renovation and TLC. They bought the old post office and school house in the Lockyer Valley, just outside of Brisbane. That where my dad's family is from so I might recognise a few places they'll blog about. Finance was approved two days ago, so now they're just about to move. Let's follow their journey.

Crochet and paper - this is a beautiful blog, if you love crochet, you must see it

I love a cloudy day

And just another one to add - My life crafted

Another week has faded into history and we're getting closer to Christmas. I'll have to start making some plans. I hope you have a beautiful weekend. Thank you for visiting me this week. See you soon!

  1. Thank you so much for the link to the Walden Effect! I scrolled through some of their postings and maybe have found a solution for a root cellar! They are using a thermo cube T-3 -- the thermostat is in the outlet plug, cuing the fridge to stay between 35 and 45 F degrees. It would be very difficult to dig a hole here for a real cellar, but used fridges are a dime a dozen -- I have a spare in my basement that I store can goods in just for the shelf space.

  2. Ohh how exciting that something I "played with" made it to your blog. Thank you for posting the link to The Old Post Office to. I'm going to watch that blog with interest. How exciting to restore a building with so much history and the bullet holes in the floor...vbg. Have a lovely weekend Rhonda.

    2. It's a nice part of the world. Forest Hill particularly seems to be looking very well loved at the moment, there's some nice little shops and cafes there now.

  7. Hope you are having a beautiful day and have had a beautiful meal with the people you love today. We just finished our Thanksgiving meal and are about to go pick out our Christmas tree.

    What were you thankful for today? I´ve been doing thankful Thursdays this month on my blog. Today I covered how I was thankful for my home and its inhabitants.
