Beltane, commune with the the seeds of your wishes to blossom over the coming season.........such a shame we are so consumed by American commercialism, to be bombarded with Halloween propaganda this time of year when it is not all relevant to us here in the Southern Hemisphere.......celebrate life, growth & the sunshine to come.

Get Your Vintage On ..........

Oatlands Spring Festival
18th October 2009
Walking Through the Ages 

an annual not to be missed  Street Festival in the historic village of Oatlands, Tasmania.....
Next Sunday Oatlands blossoms to life with markets, historical re-enactments & displays, food, music, animals, daring activities, parades, puppets & much much more......

And the best thing about it all is the chance to give all those vintage rags a bit of an airing.......many on the day of the festival don costumes from all the eras.......many colonial & victorian inspired creations to the more modern get ups from the 20's to the 70's ....

So if perhaps you are looking for something a little different to do with next Sunday  ......come along to hours drive north of Hobart.....all the excitement & festivities begin from 10am.......
& let the images above inspire you to dedicate a day to the museum end of your wardrobe & come & have fun.....
