On a hot, still day in Toowoomba we set off to our morning tea destination. We were going to The Barn, a historical rural property about 20 minutes from town. After a beautiful drive through natural Australian bush and across floodways spanning dry creeks with rocky beds, we turned into a dusty driveway and pulled up beside an old tin shed. A glance outside the car revealed old farm equipment and old vehicles, all of which oozed into their dry surroundings in a lovely rusty red way. We wandered into the tin shed, which contained a cafe and were treated to yet more old things, this time of a domestic nature. There were meat safes, wicker prams, milk cannisters, a bush shower, kitchen implements and wooden chests. As you can imagine, I was in my element!
