Yesterday's Maker's Market was a blast! Well actually the blasts (of cold air) were thankfully outside - inside the gorgeous Daylesford Town Hall it was warm & toasty and full of atmosphere. Lots of lovely locals & friendly tourists weaved their way through the stalls, stopping, chatting, looking & buying wonderful, handmade treasures.
sorry you are a bit blurry Kate!
I was lucky enough to have Charlotte helping me all day and we enjoyed the company of George & Annissa nearby. Also the amazing 'living statue' who was so captivating (and slightly unnerving for small children!)
I really enjoyed seeing my old market mates as well as meeting some new ones such as the gorgeous guys from Clunes (The Strangler) & other clever creators from Castlemaine & Creswick & Ballarat.
The other bit of excitement was meeting Tania from Myrtle & Eunice and her lovely family. What a surprise!! I had to give her a big hug..hope that didn't freak you out Tania! Also the very wonderful Cam from Curlypops appeared with an adorable apron that I'd asked her to make. A little while back I had spied a 1992 teatowel on her blog and as that was the year Charlotte was born I thought it would be a fun pressie. Cam whipped up a beauty and Charlotte loves it. Thanks so much Cam!
Geoffery Williams, a very talented local singer songwriter played and sang too which added a certain touch of magic to the day.
What a great market it was! Well done to Steph (Doily) & Allison (Lark) who put in so much effort to bring the market to life. It really looked, and was, amazing.
So today I'm tired and still in my pj's. Luckily Mark has taken the kids to Ballarat for some lunch and a play so I'm just mooching around drinking tea and putting off catching up on house stuff. Thanks to everyone for their kind comments on my last post and to all you lovely bloggie friends I am sending lots of Dandelion love xox
