Back to the shopping . We stopped at Wondai, and happened to be across from a little shop selling antiques and second hand items. Mr Bird decided to go have a look, which was amazing in itself...must have been meant to go.
By the way Aussie girls if you ever drive past that lovely tourist info place its well worth a look ... a beautiful display of wood carving telling the story of the timber industry in the area.
We are not collectors of antiques but we both like the odd old thing. I fell in love with this little table. I thought if I reline the inside it would make a great place to keep some stitching beside my chair... $ 60 ..I thought it was a good price but as i said I am not into it. Did I do well??? If you know anything about it let me know???
Mr Bird fell in love with this cutlery set for sentimental reasons... His dad used this type of cutlery every day. May be we will too. It just feels good.

At our last stop " Moonie" we found these... by Wrangler . We both decided Evelyn needed them. Summer jeans for babies... LOL
Finally when we got home .. dinner was quick with produce we had bought away.
Maggie Beer's Tomato and basil Sugo ( pasta sauce) and some Italian pasta....
Have you seen this pasta before. We got it in Atherton.. big Italian population in that area. Love Italian food.
It was multi coloured stripes, about an inch wide and serrated on the edge... Interesting .. you needed a knife and fork to eat it not a spoon and fork. Wasn't sure if I was eating an octopus or a ribbon. Tasted good though.... Hopefully my next blog will be stitching...
Take care all our American friends who are freezing and snowed in.
