The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld #72 is Blue

Saturday had rolled around again and I had no ideas for the cue this week.  Then I remembered an egg cup my mother had since she was a child.  The base is dated 1925
I had a breakfast date with a friend and on the way I saw this nice display in a dress shop.  

As usual our breakfast lasted almost until lunch.  In our defence this time we hadn’t seen each other for quite awhile and had lots to share.  I was telling her about the OBW blog and the cue for this week.  She told me of a shop near her called Blue Suede Shoes.  The name took my fancy so after lunch off I went. 

In the afternoon as I was pottering in the garden I remembered this drinking tray I had made for the birds. 
I have also planted some blue flowers because I heard they attract butterflies.

To finish here is a wool bombed car I saw while I was at the film festival earlier this year.
 Well that's it for today, take care and thank you for visiting.

Historical Monuments

The theme this week at Our BeautifulWorld #71 is Historical Monuments.

There are a number of historical monuments in and around Geelong so I had great plans for Saturday.  Unfortunately I woke with a migraine.  Then my lovely husband came home from visiting his mother in Ballarat and he had taken some photos for me.  What a sweet man.

The first photograph is of the Olympic Games Monument at Lake Wendouree, at the end of the rowing course.  In 1956 the Olympic Games were held in Melbourne.  The rowing and canoeing events were held on Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.

This is the Olympic Creed. 

The second group pf photographs is the Memorial to AustralianPrisoners of War.  Again at Lake Wendouree, Ballarat.

Take care and thank you for visiting.
