Easter Bliss...

I hope you all had a magical long weekend break (it flew past way too fast) I gorged myself on chocolate and ate way too many hot cross buns! I also took the trip up to see my family in Quairading i love this drive, nothing but an open road and old school tunes.

There is something so calming for me heading into the bush it always feels like home i think because i grew up on a 10acre farm i love everything about it, the sun dancing through the trees reflecting onto the window, animals grazing and the kindness of all the locals i had actually pulled over on the side of the road to take these photos and about two cars stopped to ask if i needed help! If that happened in the city i would be shocked you can be broken down (quite obviously) and most will turn a blind eye.

I found this dress quite a few years ago (i have featured it here on the blog a few times) it was hand sewn by a lady in the 50's and the fabric is hand painted (sigh..amazing) the collar has almost an origami feel to it. I remember at the time there was around 6 dresses she had sewn herself and i couldnt afford the others i have since kicked myself every day because i would have loved to have them in my collection.

I am now officially on a no chocolate diet...lets see how long that lasts! Xx

So Pretty :) I love going to the country side (In Canada) I find it soo so so relaxing, you can back into the city recharged and calm. I think everyone should experience that :)
