A Coat and a Vintage Car
Heading off for a MG Car Club run in this MG TD , that John has owned since the early 1970's.
I have always struggled with the cold in an open topped car as the weather becomes cooler but all that has changed since I discovered this coat towards the end of last Winter. I discovered it at our local recycled clothing store, Return to Splendour, and bought it at a really good price as it was the end of a season.
Whenever I wear it, I feel like I am wrapped in a soft, snuggly blanket, simply perfect for a ride in a Vintage Car. The car and I were both made in the same year, I guess that makes me vintage too.
Some of the cars on the run parked outside a garage containing a very impressive collection of vintage cars,motor bikes and other car paraphenalia. No photos of the cars, etc. my camera and I took off to explore the beautiful gardens and have a closer peek at the house.
Now you can see why, the house known as Carrick House dates from 1840 and is quite magnificent , surrounded by beautiful gardens.
These photos are from a few weeks ago as my photographer ( my husband, John ) is interstate at present.
I am joining him in Sydney on Wednesday , which I am really looking forward to, spending time with John
and a city fix , my idea of a perfect few days. Nothing planned , we will just take it as it comes.
Joining Patti for Visible Monday and Jess for Turning Heads Tuesday.
