Our "Mid Week Weekend" :o)

My darling husband and I managed to getaway for a couple of days last week - just the two of us to celebrate our 20th anniversary (which was actually a couple of weeks ago). We chose the most gorgeous B&B at Laidly called Branell Homestead . We had the most relaxing time, you can see that on the piccy below, that's my beloved having a quiet read on the lovely breezy verandah .......
There were cows grazing in the paddocks in front of the homestead and these delightful ladies in a chookhouse up the back :o) .........
I couldn't resist taking this arty type piccy of these gorgeous silk roses that were on the dresser, they were scented and they smelt delicious!!!
Here's the brekky hamper that arrived the first morning ... how yummy does that all look??!?! We had muffins, scones, pastries, cereal, croissants, fruit, yoghurt, juice ... there was enough food there for a family of 5 he he he ......
We visited the local shops while we were there and I simply couldn't resist this lovely fridge magnet ... what a lovely sentiment!!!Here's us playing "Tommy Tourist" at the lookout at Laidly ;o) .....
And here's the rest of the trinkets that 'followed me home' he he ... Don't you just love those keys??!!! Irresistable!!!!! We found the little antique iron at a huge antique store in Esk, and I just had to buy some pretty silk roses to remind me of our lovely getaway :o). We also managed to catch up with gorgeous Kris from Tagalong Teddies for lunch at the Chocolate Cottage Cafe in Highfield but I forgot to get a piccy of the 3 of us ..... grrr!! Nevermind, that just means we'll have to go back and do it again he he ... that ok with you Kris???

Don't forget our fabulous "Among the Gumtrees" giveaways!!! Look at the gorgeous goodies our lovely Vicki is offering ..... hmmm, what name can I come up with so that I can enter too he he he??? Don't you love that table mat, Vicki made it herself and it has cinnamon in it so that when you put a warm pot on it it will smell delicious .... how clever is that!!??!
So off you go ... straight over to Vicki's at Tozz's Corner and enter her giveaway!!!!!
Talk soon .......

Hey Joy! I can't believe we BOTH forgot our cameras!! EEEK! What sort of bloggers are we! :0) And it's DEFINITELY fine by me that we organise a return trip ... just let me get my calendar! :0) Love the little hanger with your keys on it - I want a black one to match the draw pulls in my new kitchen, though. Glad you had a lovely get away to celebrate your anniversary - we had ... pizza. Hmmm ... think the Beloved needs work on his romantic gestures! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS

Congratulations Joy, 20 years! The B&B looks terrific and so do all the lovelies you collected.
Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such kind words but mainly a very big thank you for solving my link problem. It's always simple when you know how.
Thanks again and here's hoping the next 20 years are at least as happy as the first.
