Wow! What a great one! I haven't been to a Handmade Expo for a while and I was looking for a little distraction yesterday before the onslaught of the next week. For me, this next week is not going to be a good one.
What better way to distract yourself than with some retail therapy. There was an amazing stall where the seller had taken vintage suitcases etc and covered them with paper and many layers of mod podge to create some gorgeous one of a kind pieces. I simply could not resist this gladstone bag. I can see some great photo shoots in the future with my quilts and bunnies and this beauty. The creators name is Emma, but unfortunately doesn't have a blog or website to link to. I can tell you she will be at The Ipswich Indoor Bazaar next Sunday. Check it out if you're in the area.
I also picked this gorgeous owl note book from Handmade at Woolshed Creek. Just gorgeous. And Miss 12 couldn't resist the little owl brooch either.
We grabbed candy eggs and knitted chickens, and coffee and fudge (of course!!) and had ourselves a great day, despite the occasional spot of rain that tried in vain to ruin our day.
Miss 12 and I stopped in to the Salvos store near the Expo on the way home. I picked up these super cute crochet pot holders (??) for a tiny 50c each. My only Flea Market Find for the week.
