I was on a bus trip with the Moonta Crafters, and we were lucky enough to visit the magnificent Tickle Tanks. The tanks are delightful, the mosaics throuhgout the home and garden were unique.
I was enchanted with the Decor in the homeit was eclectic and very tasteful.
Irene was a delightful Lady, always ready to talk about the building and how she did most of the labour herself. You have a house that you have constructed as a Labour of Love. Thanks for allowing us to roam your house and soak up the unique ambiance of your home The morning tea was delicious, thanks to you and your helpers.
Anyone who can get to Tickle Tanks do not miss the opportunity, as you leave feeling happy. We must all stop and smell the roses, and this is the place where it can be done

Thanks again,
