Happy day


...Yesterday was such a great day

... seeing a wonderful group of creative people coming together in the fabulous Daylesford Town Hall to put on what was definitely the best Daylesford Makers Market yet.



We welcomed new stall holders like the very lovely Rachel from Pictures Eat People, and clever Ziggy (who made these amazing peg dolls above) Kelly & Kate from Dear Prudence, the very talented Laura from pink snowflakes, Manda, Kootoyoo, Ceci Bean, Mim Whimsy from Castlemaine...it's hard to list everyone but I was so impressed with the quality of the stalls. All so individual and inspiring. I love these crowns by Amanda from Wildflower Soul.


The crew from Thaw were there and it was also great to see Geoffrey, George, Milla and their new baby Ella. And of course it was good to be with lovely Kate and Steph, two wonderful local women who I am so proud & lucky to have as friends. Steph, you did an amazing job setting up & organising the market, the feedback from stall holders and customers was fantastic.


So lovely too to meet some gorgeous crafters and bloggers including the very clever Jodie, thanks so much for my keyring (and puff) Jodie, I love it!! Your stall was so amazing, if any of your effalants need to be re housed for ANY REASON whatsoever, please call. And to all the bloggers out there who came along and said hi, thanks so much,, it was lovely to meet you all. Julie, the suffolk puff idea was a real winner!


Great to see Cam aka Curlypops and her sister, lovely chatting to you Cam! Hope we see you again up this way, soon ok??


Charlotte and I had alot of fun at the Dandelion stall, she was such a great help and the best company, thanks so much Char! Who else would run home and get my camera charger for me?



I was so happy too that my nearly all my bunnies (except one) went off to new, loving homes. It is so satisfying when people enjoy what I make, and I loved meeting all the children who popped by too. I got to meet dear little Alice who is the daughter of Sarah, a new friend from my course, thanks for coming along, Sarah. And a special hello to Celeste who has four beautiful sweeties and a lovely blog which I have just discovered.


Talking of sweeties Annissa from Lillypilly was there and it's always lovely to catch up with this beautiful local. Her stall looked gorgeous too and we always have a good old chat and laugh. Hope that glass of wine went down well tonight Annissa, mine sure did!

There were many highlights yesterday, one of which was seeing my dear nieces, Zoe (above) & Gemma (below right). I don't get to see them as much as I would like so it was very special to me that they came along. Boy am I going to miss them when they move to Tassie.



So you can see from all my photo's what a happy day it was. It just goes to show what can happen when people come together, bringing their creativity, sense of fun, colour, some laughs, love and the sense of community that comes from living in this wonderful part of the world. Thanks so much everyone for making it such a great day xo

Hi Beck :-)
We must have been posting at the same time :-)
I feel so lucky to have been a part of yesterday. It was definitely a special day with all those talented women ..and a few men ;-) ...in the one cool space.
Your work is beautiful. No wonder your bunnies have all relocated :-)
I only wish I had more time to socialise...maybe next time :-) As you can see I can't stop smiling

It was such a lovely day yesterday. The market has a beautiful friendly welcoming vibe. All of the lovely Daylesford girls made me feel just like I was one of the locals. I can't wait to visit again next year.
It was lovely having a chat....I'm going to pop my lavender heart under my pillow when I get home tonight!

YOU LITTLE RIPPER! So pleased to hear it went brilliantly yesterday. I can hear the smile on your face as I read. Now don't worry about me, I'll go out and find myself some therapy to get over the missing of it all.

What a wonderful day - such a range of creativity! I was happy to see some of that lovely rainbow fabric on your stall - I have carefully kept the tiny bag you made from it. Congrats on rehousing so many bunnies - I know they will be so much appreciated.

Hey that does look like a great day, what a wonderful collection of stallholders! And what a small world, you mentioning lillypilly, that is my husbands very favourite dessert wine that we can only get over here in a few restaurants!

Sounds like a fantastic time! How lovely to have such good company! My eldest boy helps occasionally and it's great. Wish I could have come! Just a bit far though!!

Congratulations Beck on selling nearly all your bunnies, of course you would as they are so cute and adoring. It seems as though the market was a huge success. I am hoping to get to one of them soon, Paul got home too late from work so it wasnt possible but maybe I can plan further ahead next time and make a day of it. I loved reading your post about all the people who attended too, it seems you were in amongst the best of the bloggy crafters!

Looks like such a wonderful day, and I'm thrilled but not surprised nearly all your beautiful bunnies found homes. I would love to have been there xo

Julie said...

What a great day, crazy as it was. How nice most of your little bunnies found homes.

Hi - thanks for dropping in on me. I had a fabulous time at the market and only wish I had so much more to spend! and don't worry we got 'its a pirate' comments all day - and get them most places we go. Being a pirate is very very important business:)

Nikki Cardigan said...

It looks like it was a great day for many reasons Beck... just what you needed... for many reasons!
