School Holiday Tulips at Tesselars & Treasures from Castlemaine

Can you believe these are tulips!!
We took the Big Boys up to Tesselars here in the Dandenongs last week during the holidays

They were having their annual Tulip festival. I took lots of pics of the most beautiful blooms. Thought you might enjoy a few too.


These are my two little blooms. It was a cold day but that didn't stop them enjoying themselves.

And some of the lovely things that came home with me from Castlemaine the week before.

Vintage Sanderson Nursery Rhyme Curtains ~ stunning and in excellent condition!

Two Vintage Suitcases

A beautiful hand embroidered grey silk Kimono ~ unfortunately in pieces but usable pieces, the embroidery is stunning!

1950/60's embossed cotton

1960/70's geometric cotton

Deco Pressed Glass bowl ~ saw the same bowl in a second hand store the next day for $30!

Cross stitch birdies for a cushion
Scrumptious Edwardian Broderie Anglais cotton Tablecloth
My favourite tiny crotchet and linen tablecloth
Beautiful inserts don't you think

A cotton french linen look-a-like tea towel destined to be a cushion!
Had lots of fun finding it all.
Next post is my 100th (who would believe!!) and I have a give-away planned to celebrate. Keep an eye on my posts!!

Happy Thursday :)

You really found some lovelies! I especially like the "french" linen with the abc on it. And those red tulips! Thank you for stopping by my blog! It's always nice to meet new friends. :)

Hi Irene. Firstly how did you resist not picking all those tulips? And second I adore those suitcases.

I would love to visit Tesselars - I buy all my bare rooted roses from them every year and spend hours studying their divine catalogues. It's so hard not to buy everything! Leigh
