Mathildas Market Madness

Wow and what a day it was
Mathilda's definitely delivered the crowds and awesome stallholders,many being our own Brisstylettes.
Come 9am when the Markets opened it was like someone opened a flood gate
Mums and bubs and lots of prams filled The Brisbane city hall all to grab something special.

And going on what the other stall holders had to say I wasn't the only one that had a great day.

This would have to have been MyGirls best market to date.

Evie Rose/ Little Diva

After all our hard efforts Mekaela from Ruby RoseBud Designs, Mel from Retro Bird and myself treated ourselves to a well deserved indulgence at The Stamford Plaza High Tea. The pics speak for themselves,YUM!

Just a Quickie

Hello there...

Just a quick post to say I haven't disappeared under my stash of fabric that is taking over my sewing room floor. I want to be in bed by midnight tonight and time is running out!

I have been very busy this week preparing for Mathilda's Market that is happening this Sunday at Brisbane City Hall. 9-1pm

I have some new items that I have been working on, new button earring accessories and Kitchy Kitchy Koo dresses made from vintage tablecloths, pillowcases and sheets.

Hope you can make it to Mathilda's, I bet you won't be disappointed with the talent that is on show for your Xmas shopping pleasure

Tea for Two

It's was my dear friend Miss Annie's Birthday yesterday, and being the busy bee I am preparing for Mathilda's, I had to run about town and get supplies yesterday.

So we set the date for today instead.
On the menu today
-Green Tea

-Black tea-
-Croissants with Philly Cheese, Semi Dried Tomato's and baby Spinach

-Mushroom and Pumpkin Tarts-
-Heart shaped Shortbread with Lemon butter-

-White chocolate covered Marshmallow Balls tossed with Coconut-


I could do this everyday,easy!
Sweet Pea's and Star Jasmine flavoured the air with their pretty fragrance

The Perfect Prezzie

It's my Little Niece Koa Pearl's Birthday on Sunday and she is turning two.

So the pressure is on for a great gift, well not really, she's 2

I bet she will just love the wrapping anyway

But I love going out of my way to buy special people in my life something that they will treasure.

So with that in mind there was once place to visit, House & Doll, at Bulimba.

A MyGirl favorite

I get a little lost in there when I visit with all the cool things to look at.

So with the end of school drawing near I had to make a decision, quick!

I just adore these little polka dot suitcases, it was a toss up between the red & pink.

But I went with the pink, which set off the theme to fill it with fun pink things.

Being that she is third in line after my sister inlaw had 2 boys first, she has to compete with alot of Spiderman and Batman and Pirates. So bring on the pink I say

When I got home I started to work on filling it, cute strawberry clip from Denim Days

Sweet pink rose clips by House & Doll

And almost forgot my Thea & Sami stash that I purchased way back on the last Market day of The Designer Emporium Market now Boutique Market at Portside.

Wonder what pink I will find tomorrow to put in it?

Other things that caught my eye

All available at House & Doll
