Sunny days & sweet awards

Lucy, Sunday & I took the train down to Melbourne on Saturday to see Charlotte

before she heads off to New York (!). We also popped in to the Made in Thornbury market which was FUN. The girls loved the hairclips and brooches and all the colourful stalls.

Then we dropped in on my brother and his family for a cuppa before heading back on the train. I love train's so relaxing. It was such a beautiful sunny weekend and we all enjoyed time together and at home. Great to go to our local makers market too on Sunday which looked fantastic. The stalls all looked great and I loved the rag mat maker who had her gorgeous mats all laid out on the grass like colourful suns. Didn't take any photo's unfortunately...!


How exciting, two awards from the lovely Jemm!! My first two awards - isn't she sweet? It's nice to know that my everyday ramblings are read by someone a million miles away. I love the way blogs bring people together - it reminds me of the penfriends I had when I was younger. Thanks Jemm!
