So this one time at craft camp ....

Just back from a lovely weekend of girly crafting!
(My first weekend away just with the girls since having Jake 7 1/2 years ago)

Lark House in Daylesford is gorgeous (if slightly lacking in washing up liquid and tea towels).
Lovely vintage details and very comfy!!

Thank you so much to Cindy, Judy, Kat, Lisa, Narelle, Holly and Cate for a seriously lovely weekend.
