Snapshot Sunday

Vanda and I had a lovely day out in Hobart. We spent most of it happily walking around the waterfront. The weather was with us and there was plenty going on. We saw everything from ships leaving the harbour to Darth Vader on a Segway scooter thingy. Too bad I didn’t get a photo of him for today. I did get some very nice photos of other things and here are a couple of them. The mother of these little girls said I could take a few photos of these little fairies who were going to a very special party.

I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see


  1. I like your new layout. I just re-read your “human59” that is on the same page. I love retro items, too, and even something like an old cinnamon tin from the 30’s-40’s excites me. PS The little girls are darling. I always hesitate to ask anyone if I can take their photo.

    • I love my retro world and collecting retro stuff is my main interest. We are hoping to start a retro blog next year on a new page. Please keep watching for news. I am shy about asking to take photos too but I really wanted this shot. Thanks for your comments. I enjoy hearing from others.

      • I would rather look at fewer blogs and take my time to comment than to just whisk through a bunch of them. Even though WordPress has fantastic people on it. A retro blog sounds great!!! Good luck with it.
