Latest eco dyed silk/cotton dress on display outside Gone Rustic today. Weld (dyers rocket) in the dyepot; various leaves and iron nails in the bundle.
All of the clothes I eco dye are vintage/retro. I look for quality and detail, as well as lovely fabric. This dress met all these requirements!
on our way back from hobart yesterday we found this historic gem in kempton
the sign said light refreshments, and as it was lunchtime we knew we had to investigate
we were not disappointed
wonderful food, beautiful setting, friendly hosts – we couldn’t ask for more!
husband was keen to see vintage steam engines and vintage cars so we let him go off on his owndaughter and i alternated between finding shady places to cool off and looking at all the displays, including one by the sheffield spinners
there was even a toy story bouncy castle, but we resisted the temptation to have a go (it was too hot)a steam train ran regularly, taking passengers who were waiting at the historic railway station (unfortunately i omitted to photograph them)i learned that tasmanian fine ice creams are absolutely delicious (i had the lemon cheesecake flavour)
lots of vintage machinery (many in working order) were on show, including this ‘mystery object’, which we thought might be a grain thresher
recently i had the privilege of attending the opening of linda burns’ first solo exhibition at the golden gate gallery, mathinna, tasmania
this is the final post showing photos of this exhibition – but certainly not the last we’ll hear of this talented artist
if you would like to visit the gallery, check out a map of the area first so you don’t get lost – just type mathinna, tasmania in the search box
