Today our daughter took Stephen and I for a drive out to Bungendore and Braidwood.
She had wanted to get in some more driving experience as at the tender age of 47 she has had her drivers licence for less that 2 years.
She never found the need to learn to drive before because everyone else used to take her everywhere.
Anyway back to the story--both of these little country villages have lots of antique stores and places filled with old memorabelia plus quaint little eating places.
When we were in one of the shops I spotted this retro spice set---and I let out a little shriek--not too loud you know but loud enough for Stephen to ask what was wrong.
Now back in the 70's we had a set of these plus the bigger cannisters for flour-sugar-tea and coffee as well.
We also had a set of lime green saucepans--now how trendy was that?
The lady in the shop asked me what had happened to my set---
How would I know they weren't fashionable anymore---oh I do remember--I gave them to a friends two daughters who were setting up house together and they were into retro stuff and they were over the moon to have them.
As far as I know they still use them.
They wanted $33 for the set and Stephen in true Stephen fashion said "You're not going to buy them are you?"
NO way Hose`
