Fish Creek Tea Cosy Festival

Every second year a Tea Cosy Festival is held in our little town

These are just a small selection of some of the tea cosies on display

Yesterday I worked at the Festival for the first time
I was astounded at the amount of  interest with people coming from as far away as Castlemaine just to see our display

Also astounding was the amount of talent out there .....and imagination

Entries in the completion also came from all over the country. The organizers gave it an immense amount of publicity

Well done to all concerned

Tin Opening Day

So beautifully wrapped

Yesterday was open day for out tins
What lovely gifts I received from Helen and a lovely tin
Thank you Helen
I will have fun with my gifts
I did not get to open my gifts until this morning
Yesterday we woke up to howling winds. I thought it was bad here but when I went to pick up my grand daughter... OMG I could not believe how bad it was at their house
Trees down everywhere and shed roofs banging madly
It was quite scary
I took her for the day and when Lynda got home from work she found the roof of one shed on her front lawn It had smashed a gate and taken out the house power on its way
Power will hopefully be reconnected today
Upside was I got to have them here for the night
Fortunately all their animals were safe
