Today there was a Winter chill in the air so time to don my Winter white Moyuru jacket for a drive along the river to Windemere .
This first taste of Winter has arrived rather suddenly after a very mild Autumn. Only last week I started the wardrobe changeover from Summer to Winter . Time to put those Summer straw hats away and make way for my wool and felt Winter favourites.
It was the first outing for this little black and white bow hat that I discovered on sale at a local dress shop over the Summer. I am rather pleased with it and know it will work with many more outfits. Today it paired perfectly with vintage clip-on earrings and my Preen sunnies.
On my recent trip to Melbourne I came across this pair of Trippen boots, tried them on and of course they had to come home.
They have a shearling decorative strip on the back , it reminds me of fluffy ear muffs.
Now the church, St, Matthias Anglican Church was built in 1842 on the banks of the Tamar River at Windemere. The church was built by Dr. Mathias Grant to fulfil a promise he made to his wife before they left England . His wife was concerned that there would not be a church in the area they were to make their new home .
Last year the church , along with 107 other buildings , was placed on a provisional list of properties to be sold by the Anglican diocesse , in order to meet its commitment to the national redress scheme for sexual abuse victims.
A fundraising effort by church members and local residents raised $45,ooo.00 , enough to stop the selling of this piece of history.
