I'm Back !!!!!!!

Well I'm back from the big smoke--Melbourne that is--and what a fabulous time I had.
I can't believe how everything fell into place perfectly --no hiccups with the transport to and from the airports and a wonderful flight with Virgin Blue.
We had no sooner taken off and then we were landing.
We stayed in the centre of Melbourne in Collins street which made it so easy to get around by either tram or train.
And the hilite for me was to finally meet Dot of the Dotee doll fame---and what a lovely lady she is too.
We talked nonstop for 2.5 hours like life long friends and could have continued for a lot longer but Dot had to catch the train home.
Thanks Dot for taking the time to come and visit us.




When we got home there was this lovely ATC for Ebony from Lise in Norway waiting for us.
Ebony loves it Lise.



You will have to wait until tomorrow to see what I spent my money on.

How absolutely wonderful to see the photo of you with dear Dotee (How I love that wonderful woman) and I am sure the two of you had a wonderful chat. Two amazing artists, how could you not?

Hello lovely lady!

I was so thrilled to meet you and spend time with you. You are such a special person and we didn't draw breath did we? Lots of chatting and laughter.Sounds like you enjoyed the rest of your stay. I am suffering from button envy after your finds in the button shop! Good on Stephen for finding the shop for you(what a gem).

Thanks again for the wonderful gifts too. I adore my new tassle.

Might be taking my friend Shirl to the Chapel Street Bazaar tomorrow.

Much love

Dot xoxo
