Daylesford Lavender....

During our time in Melbourne we decided to take a drive to Daylesford which is around an hour and a half out of the city centre, i love a good drive so i was pretty excited to get out of the hustle and bustle for a day.

We slowly meandered up winding roads and as you looked upwards the branches almost seemed as if they were hugging you and merrily bouncing the sun upon your face, it sent welcome bursts of warmth and cool as they would dissapear again and hide behind shaded branches, the houses and farms whizzed by and my love and i chatted about our plans for the year ahead.

We were on a small mission though to find the Mill Markets and spend a lazy afternoon rummaging and after a few hours we did find an amazing 1950's Gayware kitchen cannister set in grey and pink (Image available on my Instagram account if your interested) we had been on a hunt for one for a long..long..time so it was nice to find it!

On the way home we stopped at a Lavender field that sits next to the Sault Restaurant, i had aways wanted to frolick in a lavender field (i mean who wouldnt want to) and i set about doing just that, my love was kind enought to snap some photos for me too (such a lucky woman) he managed to capture my exact feeling..just pure bliss!!! Aside from the occasional (almost) bee attack and dodging spiderwebs it was just as magical as i had imagined!

I am sad to say this is the last set of photos from our trip, instead of sunny lavender fields and Melbourne backstreets Perth is making a return to the blog. I hope you all enjoyed seeing a little of our adventures though!

Happy Friday...i am so looking forward to this long weekend, going to make the most of it thats for sure!!!

Beautiful! Walking through a field of lavender seems absolutely dreamy. I'm sure I would be ready for a nap afterwards, though.

What a beautiful setting!

It's great when you finally find something you've been after for ages, isn't it? I recently found a little Nallyware spice set that matches my canister set in everything but colour. It was a wonderful moment.
