I Do Like to Be Beside the Seaside

As adults we do get very busy on a day to day basis and forget the simple things in life.

For example frolicking by the Bay.

I took some time out from the busy day I was having,just after I mowed for 3hrs and just did this.

Kids are so beautiful to watch playing, away from computers and TV

Although it was very gusty down our way today, it was lovely to take them out on an adventure

The to do list for our walk was to...

go to the park,tick

look for crabs under rocks,tick

spot the Narnia Ship,tick

gather cuttlefish for anyone that had a bird,tick

Along the way Finlay's friend Isabella spotted a whole shell unopened,they were very disappointed when they smashed it on the pathway on the way home to see there was no pearl or treasure inside,priceless

But the most important part,are we still getting an ice cream

Just goes to show you don't have to venture to far from home to have fun

Race Course Rd Street Party

And that is was, I mean the whole st was packed with everything from street performers,bands to market stalls and did I mention Food, soooo much food

Brisbane definitely turned on the good weather for the day,and at times it was bit summery being that we were on the bitumen

With so much happening it seemed like the good folk were on a mission to be where it was all at,the music and food and free stuff that was on offer at the end of the street. But eventually making their way back down the street to were we were waiting for them.

1. The beautiful
Sandrine tending to another customer,her designs are very popular
Up In Annies room makes wonderful jewelery from vintage scrabble tiles
Embelish and Jellygnite with their beautiful hair and childrens accessories
4. Beckybean's cool bags made from up cycled tea towels and tablecloths
5&6. The amazing BrisStyle co-op stand for all the lovelies that couldn't have a stall on the day, the tables looked amazin'

If anything it was a great day to promote our BrisStyle Christmas Market on the 5th of December.

Sam's gorgeous Dolly's from Jettas Nest Beckybeans cool bags
Also I would like to thank Michelle and Caitlin of Vintage Visions for being my partner on the day,meant I got to go out and take it some of the action

Also to Lyssy to taking the time out of her busy social schedule to come and visit me,was so great to see her

Granny Squares

Dont you just love Cate Blancett look at the opening of an exhibition in Melbourne last week. As soon as I saw it, it made me sit up. Not every ones cup of tea,just have a look at some of the criticism that fashion critics are giving her, but I say good on her for stepping outside the square.

She looks amazing in anything she wears and she pulls it off nicely I think,go the granny squares

Was lovely to attend the Portside Markets on Sunday.
After such a horrible week, was nice to escape in to Retail Heaven.

Lots of new faces this Month, from foodies to swimwear designers.
Some other new faces were my new lil' Bushka Friends. They are hoping to have babies by this weekend. Just in time for The Race Course Rd Street Party at Ascot.

My neighbour for the day were the very talented people behind The Stroogle and Pie - Rat books.

What great stuff they had, and just in time to pick up my nephew his Birthday prezzie

Beautiful Skies Ahead

Well it's that time of the month again,when the girls at Portside roll out the marquee's.

With the weather forecast looking clear, what better day than to take a stroll through our beautiful market on a lovely Springs day.

As you can tell by recent posts that things have been a lot sad for me of late, with losing my Nana. And very ill, I haven't been in a very productive mood. After saying goodbye to my Nan yesterday,today was a good day to get stuck back into it. She wouldn't want us all to be sitting around sad and feeling sorry for our selves. Although my mind was think with thoughts of her all day while I sat and created and moments in between. It was listening to her Eulogy yesterday that made me even more determined to get back to work. My Nana was such a hard worker, and it really makes me sit up and want to get things done.
And that I did and again tomorrow.
Although midnight will come around quick tomorrow and I will still be wanting to have had more done. I am so happy to be back were I love to be.

So do pop down if you are in the area on Sunday 8am -1pm,lots of talented girls and the odd boy will be there with lots of goodies for you all to see

It was fantastic to get together with the girls of BrisStyle Yesterday. Lots of new and wonderful things happening for us all.

For some of you that don't know what BrisStyle is. We are a collective of women who live in Brisbane, Australia and sell on ETSY

It was a good turn out with lots of yummy nibbles and some show and tells

Hopefully I will be back soon with some progress, as it's Market time again this weekend.

I say hopefully, after coming home from the meet I was struck down with a virus and still battling it tonight. I haven't slept so much in my life

Speaking of markets MyGirl has been accepted to do the Mathildas Market, which is on the 1st of November at Brisbane City Hall
