What if I had been snoring in the passenger seat at that moment on the drive down to Sydney over a week ago?
What if I hadn't seen the antique shop in the main street of Macksville?
What if I wasn't interested in antique shops?
I know. I know. What if my mother hadn't met my father? Stay with me.
What if on the way back home, it became all too hard, and we just kept going?
What if we hadn't turned around just past the bridge and come back for a better look?
What if we had been able to find a car park in the main street, or even the side street we turned down?
What if we hadn't had to drive right around the block and park at the river.
We would never have seen this! That's WHAT IF!!!
That crazy woman that danced around and embraced complete strangers the first time she saw her book on a bookstore shelf? She turned up again and put on a show in the street in front of The Remnant Basket's window display.
Macksville is a little town one might miss if one blinks (or is snoozing in the passenger seat) on the NSW North Coast. The Remnant Basket's owner, Diane has a sister Marie, who bought Wild Tea Cosies in Melbourne, brought it home and got busy making the lot! I especially love your variations on a theme Marie. They are on sale to raise money for Pink Ribbon Day. Other fabulous women of Macksville have also knitted and embroidered tea cosies for sale. All gathered here together in this magnificent window.
I giggled all the way home to the Sunshine Coast. What an incredible treat.
