Saffron's Strawberrypatch lives not far from me and has an amazing collection of Australian pottery. Vicki invited me to her lovely home and trusted me to open her cabinets and touch her precious collections.

The wedding was held at the local Methodist church with the reception at the bride's parents house. There was no honeymoon, they moved straight into a nearby rented cottage.
Remembered with Love.
UPDATE: A family member had a newspaper report of the wedding.
The bridesmaids gown was apricot georgette with cape to match. She carried a bouquet of blue lupins and sweetpeas with tulle and streamers to match.

The mug on the rug is a Saturday bargain from the Salvos. A queen Victoria mug, perfect. The daffodils are from the supermarket and my first bunch of the season.
The rug is expertly made, thank you so much for thinking of me Gina, I won't know which side to use first.

A tea cosy I knitted is seen in the movie when I pour a cup of tea.
I had a wonderful trip to Canberra and the movie is a 'must see'.
Not because I am in it only for a very short time but because of all the old film footage from 1954. Australia was a different place then and almost the whole population tried to get a glimpse of the Queen somewhere. And the Queen worked so hard to admire everything we had to show. The museum in Canberra has the original Daimler the Queen used in 1954 and is raising money to restore it to it's former glory.
The movie is called "When the Queen Came to Town". I think it is in cinemas this weekend.
