Does anyone remember these (you might have to be 50ish and from Brisbane)?
They were left to me, 30 years ago by my Nan, so "found" a long time ago.
I spent the happiest times of my childhood at my Nan & Pop's house at Spring Hill. A lovely old Queenslander, high on the hill off Gregory Terrace.
Sadly the house was torn down in the 1980's like so many others in the 70's and 80's, to make way for an ugly trendy thing, so all I have now are the memories.
From what I was told, these are Tristram's Glasses, as a promotion of Tristram's Soft Drinks. You would receive a free glass for every so many bottles you purchased, back in the day when Soft Drinks were delivered to the door in big clangy trucks.
They have the T T along the bottom for T. Tristram, and I loved them as a child. It was a treat to be allowed to drink out of them. I had my first addictive taste of Sarsaparilla in those glasses lol.
The foto fanatic (who loves Brisbane history as much as I do) over at Your Brisbane: Past and Present has a post on Tristram's Drink Factory HERE
The next find was another from the last Bookfest in January, this one was a dollar well spent....
A little Box Calendar with a quilting block pattern for every day of the year, with instructions for each block (although I think a beginner quilter would need more detailed explanations).
It's a treasure chest of designs!
A gorgeous Wedding Quilt
And I really like modern designs like this featuring my favourite thing - hearts! I'm already searching for some spotted background fabric, looks like I need some extra time to do more sewing.
Thanks for visiting - Jen.
