For those who live around the inner northern suburbs of Melbourne, my funky artist sister and her funky artist husband are having a garage sale this Saturday. Vintage wares, art supplies, fabrics…..it says it all in the flyer…. plus our eggs, herbs & lemons may well be featuring again!

They are leaving us for the lure of the country life. I am a teeny bit jealous as I have quite a strong desire for a rural life. My sisters and I all grew up in a small country town. Daughters of the local vet. It’s in my blood. We have spent quite a bit of time moving around over the last few years with the hubby’s work including a few stints in Bendigo, Hamilton, Orange and Alice Springs. All great places – I love the more laid back feel (couldn’t get more laid back than Alice!), friendly & welcoming people, great parking, large blocks, open spaces, the list goes on. You can even find quite a bit of “culture” as well if you look hard enough. My dream is of a big back yard with a large tree and a tyre swing. One day…..

In the meantime we’ll be enjoying spending some weekends in Kyneton when my sister and hubby move there this month.

    I understand the lure. It's a mere matter of time for us too. In the meanwhile, that's one heck of an enticing ad for a garage sale!
