a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping.

Our family's idea of glamping
starts with making a list and taking along those extra little things
that make a difference.
Marshmallows, chocolate, berries, cheese, quince paste, nuts, dried fruit, wine, sparkling, drinking chocolate and good tomato sauce.
Being food lovers, we take along a mix of fresh herbs, a few lemons, garlic cloves, ginger, flavored oils such as chilli and coconut milk.
There are lots of pre-made, just add water & shake mixtures which are fabulous! Gluten free as well as buttermilk. Serve with cinnamon sugar, maple syrup, lemon juice & caster sugar or good old fashioned strawberry jam.

Hi everyone, sorry it has taken so long to get this post out but we have been busy working on a new & exciting project that was launched late Monday night which is our online store.
The store evolved from this blog by a Thornbury maker
and devotee of all things vintage, recycled, repurposed and generally
Melbourne-based Vintage Homespun sources an eclectic mix of
interesting and beautiful pieces for the contemporary home. Vintage,
retro, modern, industrial, hand-made … we love the inventive ways these
styles work together. The scent of hand-poured candles, the curve of a
copper jelly mould, a jar of fresh herbs. Crisp linen, vintage books,
the clean lines of a geometric light-fitting. These are things that
excite the senses and nourish the soul.
We’ve loved making and sourcing these pieces and hope they’ll bring
new character, pleasure and meaning to your life … as well as to your
