I returned home from my mini-trip. It wasn’t a holiday. It was a workshop day in the Hunter Valley. Tomorrow is a work from home and then I have two more travel days. Here are two more photos from yesterday’s hotel. Their dining room is full of embroideries and samplers. They remind me of my mum and her family’s total obsession with framed stitched beauties. Quite the comfort.
The hotel was such a delight.

It definitely feel like it was a delightful place to stay, quirky and cozy at the same time.
The bed was more comfortable than my own! So fortuitous to find such a lovely place!
Oh, that’s a definite blessing indeed! (good sleep becomes so much harder to come by as one ages, says the chronic insomniac, that a good, comfortable bed is a truly priceless treasure)
As a fellow chronic insomniac, I hear you!
Those samplers…is there a Greek immigrant home that doesn’t have a dozen? Ours are now relegated to the great-dumping-ground that is our semi-finished basement.
They continue to grace my mother’s walls. Interestingly, 70s embroideries seem to be a retro design choice. I have seen spruced up homes with whole walls of them, I have even seen them in funky dive bars!
Wow, must be an Oz thing…I’ve only seen them in the dark corners of basements and storage rooms. Also, garage sales and church white elephant tables. Maybe they’ll come back!?
Hmmm….I’m not sure. I’ve seen three places in NSW truly rock this style (including this hotel) but I have also seen a few from the UK. I tried to find more examples but couldn’t find more.
