good times and more treasures

we had a lovely day together with the wilson family.  they leave 4.30am tomorrow morning for South Africa.  we visited Nan this afternoon and it was good to see her smile as all the kids jumped around in her room making some noise and fuss.



as well as enjoying the many old photos we have discovered some wonderful family heirlooms.  among them all was this incredible hat which was hand-made by my great grandmother (Nan's mum) for her dad.  it is a "Victorian smoking cap."  it is really a beautifully made treasure.  see this link for some historical information.
