OLD stuff and Alice in Wonderland

 We went to visit the Cobb and co building but there was so much more to see it was really worth the visit.
Many wind mills outside

Big notice don't get on the bikes as if you would oh I guess some people stick their little children on for a picture.
A old spinning wheel or maybe a new one they have a complete workshop here.
Wagon wheels being made the old way.

A complete saddlery and a list on the wall how much it cost to set one up I was surprised that it was so expensive at the time in the 1800's sorry I forgot how much it was
The Alice in Wonderland rooms are most likely for kids but there weren't any so we had fun playing with them.
Things that twirled and moved.

Finding places in the world.
Buttons to press that made noises and other things move.
Pies that would be impossible to eat at The Mad Hatter Party.

All the horse shoes and a list of what they are used for.

I make friends with a large concrete lizard.
Not hard to do he liked everyone.
A guy my son worked with made this, it's "Davey Jones locker."
Hand made slate tiles for the roof.
And a dress carved out of wood.


  1. It looks like a spot where you would be seriously hard to please if you couldn't find something of interest.
    That wooden dress is amazing. It looks so fluid.

    Now that's a fun place!!! YAM xx

  3. I like that carved dress, I thought it was linen until I read it was wood. Really fascinating to see things made the old ways, I could watch those old 'masters' for quite a while. the Alice in Wonderland rooms look interesting. I LOVE all the windmills in the first picture :)

  4. Looks like an interesting place. Ah, ok, it is in Toowoomba. I love the hand made slate roof.

  5. Hello, what a fun place. I love the windmills and the bikes. That lizard is huge. Happy Monday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  6. Wonderful museum. I could be there around long time.

  7. It does look a good museum, can't get over the dress carved out of wood...amazing.

    All the best Jan

    Hugs Janice

  9. Hello, I went by to say hello, since I've been disconnected from everything for a long time. As always I love your work. That I still think that they are not chapucillas, but great works. A kiss.
