Winter Weekend Getaway

I went a little way out of Sydney a few weeks ago with some of my family. We stayed in a lovely little cottage in Bowral, and I scored some amazing things from an op shop which I will post. I took a few photos when we visited a couple of vineyards for wine tastings.

The Southern Highlands are also great for antiques. One vineyard we visited is called Mount Ashby Estate. A husband managed the wine making and the wife has an antiques business which also has a store in Woollhara here in Sydney. One stone building they own is full of great antiques for sale, and every season they clear the floor and have a huge banquet for people to celebrate and have great food and wine. Their main stone building has a beautiful view and you can sit in front of the fire and have a great meal all at the same time. Bliss!

It was a really nice break from how busy life can sometimes get in the city. Exactly what I needed.
