On Wednesday my friend, Leona, and I did a spot of shopping. We managed to rummage through lots of antique stores and even a couple of fabric and quilting stores - exactly my kind of shopping!!
At Newfarm Antiques I found this gorgeous English butter dish in beautiful condition.
And this silver thimble. It is even the perfect size.
I also came away with some "very nicely priced" fabrics (cannot resist a bargain!!) and these gorgeous wooden thread cards and a couple of other "necessities"!!
We had a great day and its lovely to spend the day with someone who loves the same things you do and who is great company.
That evening I saw the wonderful Cyndi Lauper in concert at QPAC (Brisbane)! She is amazing. This is the third time I've seen her and the first time was at the height of her career, many years ago. She is as entertaining and brilliant as the first time. Her voice is so strong and she is just wonderful to see live. I love it when she starts to tell you a story and she gets sidetracked constantly and the stories just get longer and longer - and they usually have hilarious endings!
We had a great night. Lots of singing and dancing and clapping.
