I'm really excited to be able to tell you that my husband & I will be travelling to France & England in the not too distant future! I'm even learning French but I'm thinking it's a good thing my husband speaks it as I'm having a hard job retaining it at the moment! I can't wait to hit the markets & find lots of treasures. I've heard things are quite expensive at some of these markets so I will definitely have to bring out all my bargaining skills!
Have a lovely week everyone!

I am so busy this week sorting through all my goodies as Collectorama will be on again this Saturday at Nambour, (at the showgrounds from 7.30 - 2pm).
I have a lot of incentive to get as much stuff there as possible as my hubby & I are travelling to Paris in November!! Can't wait to hit those fleamarkets!!
Hope your week is going well!

This past week I have been sewing up a storm for the BrisStyle Market on this Saturday at Hamilton at St Augustines Church. This is one of the bags I have just finished. I'm using recycled hessian & old coffee bags & finishing them off with vintage & antique laces etc, this one is embellished with a removable tulle & silk flower with a bit of bling in the middle and it has calico ruffles.

I hope you've all been staying warm wherever you are! I am surprised to find it cold back here in Brisbane. I thought I would find it a lot warmer after coming from the snow & frosts in New Zealand!

I'm slowly finishing off all my critters for Winter Wonderland this coming Saturday & Sunday at the RNA Showgrounds in Brisbane. I love starting new projects but finishing them off is a bit of a chore!
Don't you just love the little vintage baby sandals, they are just the cutest. I will be selling these (if I can bring myself to part with them) & some cute little vintage baby dresses.
Hope you can come, it's the biggest Bear & Doll Show in Brisbane!

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend!

I did find some other lovely old wall mirrors but I'll clean them before I do show & tell!
Hope you're all having an awesome weekend. It's such beautiful weather here in Brisbane, so far it looks like it's going to be a great day for Mothers Day. I'm heading out to Petrie Markets to sell some of my collectables so if you feel like a day out come & say hello!

I'm hoping to list some on etsy later in the day.
Have a great week!

Such a lovely place to wander around. A lot of the buildings were destroyed in the war.
Oh well holiday over now it's time to get busy & get creative again! I have a market this Friday night in the King George Square in Brisbane. Hopefully this time there will be no rain!
HAPPY ANZAC DAY tomorrow!

I have also been planning a trip to Vietnam & will leave later this month. We are going for a holiday but the main reason is to visit and pray for a little boy named Bo who has leaukemia. I'm hoping to have a market stall this weekend to raise money for his medical bills. I just hope it stays fine on Sunday!
I hope you're all having a great week!

Just praying for the rain to go away!! It will still be on even if it rains but they may move us inside above the Groove Train. Hope to see you there! It's going to be handmade heaven! Hope tonight we get to check out the other stalls.
Have a lovely weekend!

Today I've been working on this little guy. I've recycled an old blanket to make him. I'm just waiting for the rain to stop so I can spray him with parisian & age him up a bit. I've used some old boot buttons I found in amongst my buttons for his eyes. Will post another pic when I've finished him. I'm trying to make myself finish a project before I start another one but somehow it hasn't quite worked!

My bags are packed & in the morning I head off for Nelson, my home town in New Zealand. This time my daughter & baby grandson are coming with me! For the first time I will have all 3 grandchildren together! Two baby boys & a beautiful grand-daughter who will be turning 4 while we are there!
I'm also planning to fit in a visit to an Antiques Fair, (and a few op-shops). After I ditch all the pressies there should be plenty of room in my suitcase for some new treasures!! The hatbox pictured I scored on my last trip home & the old bear is my very own from my childhood. Sadly he has no eyes & his growler doesn't work. He has glow in the dark paw pads though! Hmm not sure if they still glow!
See you all in 10 days!
