Summer Snaps (part 1)

'The Good Stuff'' (recipe below)

A little nod to our summer getaway. Caravans, cards and questionable cooking over fire were the focus. Along with swimming, biking, fishing and quirky little shop perusing. It was nice to have my mum camp alongside us and join us on biking/coffee/secondhand shop jaunts. And share the warmth of a campfire at the end of each day.

{Creswick, Vic}
Places of interest: Creswick Information Centre, Lake Calembeen Caravan Park, Creswick regional park, Creswick Woollen Mills, The American Hotel, Pyaramid Connection Healing Centre, Goldfields Farmhouse Cheese, Creswick Museum, Twin Needles Patchwork, Lambley Nursery and quaint second hand shops and cute cafes lining the main street. For more info see here. 

The Good Stuff (aka cumquat liqueur)
Place a generous amount of cumquat skins, a little sugar, a vanilla bean and a bottle of gin into a large preserving jar, cover and allow to infuse for 6 weeks to 6 months. Strain and serve, preferably chilled. Cheers!


  1. That all looks and sounds so sweetly perfect, Christine!
    And if you might like to add some felt stars to your bunting, feel free to leave a comment on my giveaway post :)

  2. Oh that summer sunshine is a tonic for us poor northern hemisphere souls. Sunny here today but icy cold. Looks like a lovely chilled out holiday. xx

  3. Ah no it didn't.

    It is a very long time since I last visited Creswick but I have fond memories of that time, as I'm sure all of you will of this visit.

  4. It's lovely to see sunshine in your posts as we are still very much in the depths of Winter. Now I want to go camping............looks perfect :)

  5. What lovely photos. It looks like you did some lovely memory making.

  6. Nice summer photos. Summer is my favorite season because I get to spend lots of time with my family.
