So excited to see some posts whilst your enjoying your travels.....I thought I was going to have to wait until you returned home to see what fun you had been up to and what treasures you had found. Guess what! I went to suitcase rummage yesterday. Finally.....it was in the Valley for Valley Fiesta and I had a stall at the Laneway markets....so convenient. I wish you had of been there. Oh well, maybe next time. Safe travels. xox
