a flower is a flower is a felt flower

a few weekends ago we had a blissful time down the coast and stayed at the beautiful beach side village of mollymook - or the mook as the locals call it.  hee hee - love it.  anyway, i bought these glorious felt flower curtain tie backs (yes that is what they are supposed to be, but i am thinking of so many more uses for them) from a funky shop in the nearby town of Milton.

aren't the colours just glorious?  i bought four of them.  i felt (hee hee) it was one of those situations that if i don't grab them now i will never see them again.  and ... the best bit .... they were only $7.50 each.  i had to ask her the price twice as i couldn't believe it.

another of the best bits about them is that the shop selling them is operated solely to support an orphanage in nepal.  love that!  only wished i could remember the name of the shop.  i had a look on line but couldn't track it down.

if you ever  get to milton you MUST have a meal at Pilgrims - it is an a-m-a-z-i-n-g vegetarian cafe that serves the most abundant and healthy meals.  it is always packed, so don't expect to leave there in a hurry in peak times.  definitely well worth the visit.  even the carnivore irishman loved it. (embarrassed and appalled with myself that i can remember the name of a food establishment but not a beautiful shop doing such kind and generous work. i'll ask the irishman - he'll remember).
