Let's Go 

 a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. 

"glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life's luxuries"

Essentials for Glamping
Portable table
Lovely table cloth
Good camping torch/lamp
Good book/magazines /newspaper
Teapot with cosy
Favourite cups
Camping chairs with cup & magazine holders
Large cheese board & knife
Wine/sparkling glasses
Bunting/pom pom garland
Tea towel
Foil trays
Air freshener
Portable loo 

Beautiful Retro Esky

Our family's idea of glamping starts with making a list and taking along those extra little things that make a difference. 

Marshmallows, chocolate, berries, cheese, quince paste, nuts, dried fruit, wine, sparkling, drinking chocolate and good tomato sauce.

Being food lovers, we take along a mix of fresh herbs, a few lemons, garlic cloves, ginger, flavored oils such as chilli and coconut milk.

Yummy pancakes!
There are lots of pre-made, just add water & shake  mixtures which are fabulous!  Gluten free as well as buttermilk.  Serve with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, lemon juice & caster sugar or good old fashioned strawberry jam.


Easy Thai fish curry!

Good green curry paste (Home made or store bought)
2 cans of coconut milk
2-3 kifer lime leaves diced
Fresh ginger
Lime juice
Fresh coriander
Extra chillies if you like it hot
Fish- Catch of the day (which for us we cheated & went up to Buxton & the kids caught fresh salmon & trout)
Cover with foil & place on open fire for approximately 30min

Hi everyone, sorry it has taken so long to get this post out but we have been busy working on a new & exciting project that was launched late Monday night which is our online store.
The store evolved from this blog by a Thornbury maker and devotee of all things vintage, recycled, repurposed and generally stylish.
Melbourne-based Vintage Homespun sources an eclectic mix of interesting and beautiful pieces for the contemporary home. Vintage, retro, modern, industrial, hand-made … we love the inventive ways these styles work together. The scent of hand-poured candles, the curve of a copper jelly mould, a jar of fresh herbs. Crisp linen, vintage books, the clean lines of a geometric light-fitting. These are things that excite the senses and nourish the soul.
We’ve loved making and sourcing these pieces and hope they’ll bring new character, pleasure and meaning to your life … as well as to your home.  

Happy Browsing!  x
