the lovely Tilba

Beautiful hills to roll down again, and again, and ...............

Haven't seen one like this for awhile.

Gorgeous fret work on the buildings giving great character.

A lolly shop like Willy Wonker.

When we returned from our recent Christmas holiday, we made a quick detour into a cute little country town Tilba. It was along the NSW coast inalnd - and was a such a hidden gem. 
I'm a real sucker for small crafty places like this - anything with a craft market, or a store selling something different, and I'm hooked!

With beautiful old weatherboard buildings in original condition, and manicured gardens, it had a mixture of cafes, galleries and shops to stroll through. It had a real old world charm about it, probably due to the close knit community of around 100 that reside here. 
Each building had the most gorgeous fret work, it reminded me of gingerbread houses all in a row! 
We stopped for some rolling (Lucas - not me!) and of course I had to pop into a few stores to check out it's wares.
