    I wasn’t sure where to post this however I’m sure someone will let me know
    As the heading says some dear friends of ours traveled to South Africa , England ,Scotland Ireland and bought us back some beautiful but useful gifts that will be used not just a dust collectors :)
    I’m not sure where the tea towel is from ? ..one item is missing from photo that is a pair of 80% wool Sox from Ireland hubby has them on so it’s hard to take a photo :p:D
    I love the door stop with a picture of an elephant carved into it
    Our friends were away for 10 weeks, they had a wonderful time including a tour of the British isles we have been so spoilt by them thinking of us.

    Well Kate, you are indeed lucky to live in the great country that is Australia and can well believe, that although you
    live there, you have not seen it all. To receive a gift from another country is to be treasured as it will hold a great
    memory of a friend and the places they've seen.
