Wow it's a busy time!

Wow it feels like I am running this week!  Collectorama is on again at Nambours Showgrounds tomorrow.  Thank goodness for my good friend Pam (Nest In The Attic) who helped me pack & is coming with me today for the set-up!

Sunday Pam & I are heading to the city on Sunday to sell at the Suitcase Rummage at Redacliffe Place.  It starts at 12pm and finishes at 5pm. 

Have a lovely weekend wherever in the world you may be!

Photos from the Suitcase Rummage & Collectorama On Again!

The suitcase rummage in the park turned out to be a lovely day!  A lovely lady by the name of Christine was out with her Urban Art Group & asked if she could sketch my bears & ellies.  If you would like to see the finished sketches pop over to my FB page at Bears & Old Lace.  Laura from Billy Angel (pictured) dropped by for a visit as did the lovely Tatyana.

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!

Finally Finished Cute Dog & New Market

Hi everyone hope you've all had a fantastic week!  Meet Lilly my new li'l pug dog.  She's created from an old jacket.  Just have to grubby her up a bit & then I'll take her to my new market tomorrow.  For everyone living in Brisbane it's called the Suitcase Rummage Home Festival.  It's on at Raymond Park, Kangaroo Point (behind the Pineapple Hotel).  It's supposed to be selling like Grandma did, out of a suitcase, no tables or gazebos allowed & definitely no mass produced products, all handmade, recycled etc as well as some vintage goodies.

It's on from 11am till 4pm.  If you come please come & say hello, would love to meet you!

For everyone else have a great weekend.

New Lace Journals

These are a couple of journals that I have been working on lately.  I love being able to give new life to some of my special pieces of old lace. 

This picture was taken up at CottonTree where we were lucky enough to spend the weekend.  My husband's boss kindly lent us his holiday unit for the weekend.  It was just so beautiful & the weather although still cool was just lovely!

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
