Daylesford

I had the loveliest day yesterday.
Mary and I drove (make that 'ambled') to the Daylesford Makers Market yesterday.

I made my first ever yoyo's so I could join in with Julie and Jodie's blog-meet-up fun.


At the actual market, there were so many lovely stalls and stall holders. I neglected to take any photos but I can show you my loot .....

Some gorgeous music boxes from Kirsty:


Kirsty was so generous .... she insisted I take a freebie: a gorgeous children's writing activity made with the most beautiful details:



Some heavenly, divinely detailed (and completely underpriced) softies from Jodie:






These will all make great end of year presents for some small people I know.

And I actually bought a couple of things for 'moi'.

A gorgeous Curly Pops brooch:


And we also visited Lark around the corner from the market which is such a divine little space.
I absolutely HAD to purchase something, so I bought an Auntie Cookie alphabet panel.


In the course of the day, I managed to meet up (though at times very briefly) with :

Mary, Bec, Holly, Justine, Fi, Nic, Kate, Meg, Kirsty, Jodie, Annie, Julie, Abbe, Allison and Cam.

SUCH a lovely day.

Hope you are having a lovely day too.

Andi :-)

Beautiful, beautiful purchases. I really want to make it, but had way too much on. I can't wait to hear the stories from Annie and Jodie!

Good loot! I bought a very similar brooch.

I wonder if I walked right past you at some point? I bumped into Bec and Justine and Fi at various times, so maybe I did. Rats, I knew I should have made a yo-yo to wear!
