a long weekend getaway....
we're skipping town...without the boys!
its been a while that we're having a weekend just as a couple so today we're driving up north to the
Hunter Valley...a beautiful wine region not far from Sydney.

its not really a romantic getaway as we're going with another 3 couples so i think it will be a eat, chat and have a good laugh weekend ahead....they are predicting rain so I guess a wet one too!!
Im not much of a wine drinker so Ive offered to be designated driver during our wine estate adventures...i'm more keen on finding good local produce, antique shops, chocolate,cheese & olive tasting fun!

the only anti-social thing Im taking with me is my crochet ...that wont be too bad I guess...

have a fun weekend everyone and I shall see you soon with my 'This is...' post!

here are some lovely garden and flower themed images by British photographer Tim Walker...love his work!!!
we've had rain and wind the past two days and my backyard is one right mess!!! it'll have to wait though....
Have a good one!!


  1. Have a lovely time. I can't say I can give you any tips. It's so different to when I used to live in the Hunter and I live close by now, but never get up there to "look about". Have fun. I am off to Bathurst, on my own, for a workshop and to chase stories and light (take photos).

  2. Have a wonderful trip, enjoy!

    Have a great weekend Anastasia, sounds like fun! (hope the weather won't be too bad for you)

  4. That sounds like a wonderful getaway. I hope you enjoy, have fun and relax!!

  5. Lucky you!
    Antique stores + foodie goods
    + crochet = wonderful weekend

    p.s. The armchair ($20!!) and desk were lucky finds from the same red cross store. I think I've developed a taste for mid-century furniture :0

  6. You always find the coolest mag pages. Hope you have a great weekend.
