T for Tuesday

I've been AWOL for a few weeks with Design Team Commitments and missed you all. Some cards I have made for these teams can be seen HERE, HERE and HERE. I invite you card makers and scrapbookers and creators to come along and play and win some prizes as well.

Last week we went for an R & R weekend down to the Gold Coast Hinterland at a place called Mt Tambourine. We stayed at a B and B called Aaronlee Retreat. It has the most beautiful view and is so tranquil, we would definitely go back again. Even the rain was magical to hear the sound on the roof while indoors as we were having a massage was just amazing beyond words.

There were lots of shops that took us 4 hours to walk through and that was only half the shops on one side of the road. It was a multinational mountain consisting of Polish, Bavarian, Irish etc restaurants and cafes that one could eat from. We weren't there long enough to visit everyone. The one disappointment was that not many of them were open for dinner and I can understand why, its not a good place to drive up to at night with the winding roads.

Above is the tea set that was in our retreat that I just had to photograph as it was so nice.

Joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T for Tuesday posts.


  1. This place sounds lovely, and I truly adore that tea and coffee service you have shown us. The cobalt blue and white would be perfect in my kitchen, and the design of these pieces is gorgeous. I can see why this place would feel magical.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely tea with us for T this Tuesday.

  2. Sounds relaxing ! The dishes here are lovely ...we call this pattern in blue ..ZWIEBELMUSTER..
    Onion-Patterns.... an all time classic .... lovely!

  3. I've been there!!! Only on a brief day trip though. Fabulous place, I agree.

  4. It does sound lovely, and judging from the shape of the china, someone has their roots in Europe..that is a very northern European looking set of storage caddies! Mind, I'm not qualified to say that, it's just a familiar shape! Good to hear that you are taking R&R, very important!

  5. that is a really beautiful tea set. Your get away sounds so wonderful...and a massage yet...I could go for one right now! Wishing you rest and a happy T day!

  6. What a peaceful, relaxing place to visit! The town really sounds charming, and the tea set fit right in. Happy T Day.

  7. Sounds like a fun trip, and what a lovely pattern for the tea set! Happy Tea Tuesday :)

  8. That tea set is just amazing. I'm so glad you had a wonderful trip. Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  9. What a pretty tea set! Sounds like a place you could go back to and spend another couple days just to visit all the shops and have massages. ;) Happy T-Day! :)

  10. I love cobalt blue and white. So classic. I'm going to have to take a peek at your design teams. :)
    Sorry I'm so late...yesterday got away from me and this morning started with a trip to urgent care with the boy. I feared pneumonia...it's not. Likely influenza...great...the next two days are finals for him. BAH!!!!
