The Royal Melbourne Show and Lady Melbourne

It only took a minute or so, but Quentin and I were the best of friends.....
Kewpie dolls galore....reminded me of my childhood so much, I couldn't believe they were still being sold!
Hanging out in at the Country Women's Association Pavilion eating scones and cream.
Here are just a few happy snaps from my big day out, tomorrows post will include more detailed photos and a run down. Now I'm off to bed, it was just exhausting!

The CWA tent is always the best for yummy things!

I'm not sure what happened to me as a kid, but Kewpie dolls ALWAYS give me the absolute creeps. I remember my sister having one that looked evil, maybe that's why. All the others have been tarred with the same brush!

I had some pictures from a carnival in Nice, but I lost the camera card :( Thanks for posting these!

I am so so so sorry that we did not get a chance to catch up over the weekend, and I'm also shocked by the very different experiences we seem to have had at the show. You make it look fun! I had a relatively horrible time there.

These photos (and Quentin) are beautiful.

Suzanne- It is super cute isn't it?! I bought it second hand and was going to sell it at the next Round She Goes but I think it might just be staying in my wardrobe!

Tray Table- I think you either love them or hate them?! My mother loved them as a child so I think it was passed onto me. I can totally see why some people would think they are creepy. I think it's the eyes....;)

Eunice- believe me I went on it and it was scary and much higher than it looks!

Grant- oh no!! I'm sorry we missed each other and I am sorry that you didn't enjoy TRMS. Maybe you needed Lady M there show you a nanna good time?!
