About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Day trip to Daylesford Part Three.....

Well, after our yummy lunch, we went for a wander through the art gallery.  Some very interesting pieces plus it was interesting to see the convent building itself.  It is also used for weddings and we got to peep at the wedding reception rooms, all set up for a happy occasion.










This glass tells you whether a storm is coming.....



 Crystals were starting to form which may explain the big electrical storm we had Sunday night





This room at the top of the building (closer to God) was the Nun's infirmary.



The view of the surrounding area from the Bell Tower.





 A nun's cell.

The old chapel....



The reception rooms for weddings....



















So, I hope that you have enjoyed the trip to Daylesford and the Convent Gallery.  I certainly did!

Now, just a reminder to check out all of the lovely giveaways on the sidebar of my blog.  Well worth a look.

hugs,
