“In every work of art, the artist himself is present.” – Christian Morgenstern

Sassafras is a quaint little charming village in the southeast part of Victoria, Australia in the mountainous and scenic Dandenong Ranges.

Here are some public art, some chairs and some windows for this week’s challenges.

    It looks like a charming place to spend some time. Those are fun photos.

    1. Teresa says:

      My hubby and I, we never get tired of this place.

  2. XingfuMama says:

    Love these, they are so much fun. I have to remember the name of this town. I’d LOVE to visit it.

    1. Teresa says:

      You have to! It’s just a small town but with lots of shops and cafes…good for a morning stroll or even a weekend getaway.

  3. Ahh, I approve of this place 100%. We do tend to gravitate to similar locations. 🙂 Brilliant all, but most of all the giraffe, the three babies and the kangaroo. I must report that two photos (immediately after the bucket) do not display. (Or possibly you deleted them?) I’m just sorry to miss out on anything, as this is such a wonderful village.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Manja for liking it. And ooops accidentally deleted it. I hope it’s back up now. The giraffe’s my fave too! Have a great day, my friend!

      1. Yes, I can see them now, more lovely chairs. Thanks!

        1. Teresa says:

          Yay. Thanks for pointing it out.

  4. What fun images! I loved the first one, but then they just kept coming. A lovely post.

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks…glad you enjoyed the images !

    Pure magic. I especially liked the giraffe and the babies but I also hanker after that gorgeous Acer in the pot. Puts mine to shame.

    1. Teresa says:

      Glad you liked them, Maris. ❤️

  6. Ludwig says:

    Indeed, a charming place and a cute name. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Teresa says:

      I think it is a name of a plant or tree I am not quite sure but definitely suits the place.

      1. Ludwig says:

        Hi Teresa. We have quite a lot of sassafras trees hereabouts. Their leaves have one, two, or three lobes, so they are easily identified. I don’t seem to have any photos in my archives, at least I don’t have the tag. But I am not all that thorough when tagging.

        1. Teresa says:

          Oh yes, I looked it up as well. Lots of those trees in the mountains where the village town is located.

      2. Ludwig says:

        Hi again, Teresa. I was wrong, in my external archive I have something with the tag sassafras. Now you got me on a hunt.

        1. Teresa says:

          Haha me too 🍃

  7. Toonsarah says:

    I’d love a poke around here with my camera!

    1. Teresa says:

      It used to be very busy here during weekends, but after the lockdown it wasn’t. But hopefully it will get back to it.

  8. restlessjo says:

    Love the giraffe!

    1. Teresa says:

      Glad you liked it, Jo! My fave too!

  9. Cee Neuner says:

    1. Teresa says:

      My pleasure to join in, Cee!

  10. Marsha says:

    Teresa, these are such fun works of art. The giraffe is adorable. Thanks for playing along. 🙂

    1. Teresa says:

      My pleasure Marsha 🥰

  11. Natalie says:

    What a fun and quirky place, Teresa. I like the eyelashes on the giraffe.

    1. Teresa says:

      Oh Natalie, you are so observant! Thanks!

  12. Teresa are those chairs tiny or was it the camera’s perspective? Interesting stuff they’ve got in that town. 🙂

    1. Teresa says:

      Yes, the pink, the yellow and the wooden chairs are children’s chairs. Nice observation 👍🏼
