Perfectly old wares...







This weekend we had no real expectations....it was expected to rain, flood, rain, rain, rain....instead we had stunning blues skies, a cool crisp breeze, mornings and afternoons at the beach....perfectly good coffee, moments with an old friend, discovered some amazing old wares and quality time together.
Next time you are on the Gold Coast you have to spend some time at Gov's Espresso {Broadbeach}....you will find a lot more than a good espresso!

Oh, swoon, Sarah! I agree, I adore the medicine cabinet. Where is this treasure trove? J x

Sarah said...

sorry to report ... no medicine cabinet. We just don't have the space right now!
The little treasure trove Jane is located 2457 Gold Coast Highway - Mermaid Beach/Broadbeach Qld
They have a great outdoor area with a sandpit boat and chalk boards for the little people! cute indeed.

The medicine cabinet reminds me of Emma's post about her revamped first aid kit!

I love that funny 'vegetables' sign. I'd love it mounted on my kitchen wall.

And sunshine - lucky you!

Sarah said...

oh the vegetable sign would be fun in a kitchen...i also thought of emma's first aid box when i saw this one! x

I will be staying over in Broadbeach on Thursday this week... coincidence! (We have a shoot on centred around the car racing.) So I will check them out for my Friday morning breakfast. x

Hi Sarah!
