Saturday’s Surry Hills Festive Markets were great!

It was such a lovely relaxed day, and the other stallholders around me were lovely.  I’ll definitely be looking to do this market regularly in 2011.

Tomorrow (Saturday 11th December 2010) I have a stall at the Reservoir Bazaar Christmas Markets.

I’ll have all of my Saponify range available, as well as some hand made soft toys and other bits and bobs.

I’m looking forward to hanging out with my friend Leonie, who makes the most beautiful jewellery.  Yay!

There’s a write up about the market here, and a couple of links to some other designers that will be having stalls tomorrow.

Make sure you pop by and say hello if you’re in Surry Hills tomorrow!

All of the products in the Saponify range will be on display, so this is the perfect time to come down and stock up for Christmas!

The market is on from 10am – 4pm, so please drop by and say hello if you’re in the neighbourhood!

This morning I we headed to our local markets in Kings Cross to do a spot of fruit and vegetable shopping.

Coincidentally this is the same dress that I wore on day 2 last year.

This first photo was too funny not to include.  A pigeon had just swooped in inches close to my head and this was taken seconds later.  Awesome, especially considering the bird in question is no longer in the shot.

Yesterday I headed down to Cronulla with my Saponify goodies for the 4th Allie’s Attic handmade market.

Allie also did a lovely little write up of Saponify products on her blog.

I’ll be updating the website in the next couple of days with some new products so stay tuned!

I hope everyone that took home some of my handmade goodies enjoys using them!

Playing along with Pip from Meet me at Mikes.  This weeks theme is bedside and was chosen by Pottymouthmama.


The shelf that holds all kinds of fun things:

The Narwhal toy I bought for Joh in San Francisco

The French kitty my beautiful friend Josephine made for my birthday this year

Assorted Plush Microbes, and a zombie kitty

The enormous blanket that took almost an entire year to knit

Assorted warm things, hand made and vintage

My collection of PJ’s and nighties


My friend Rosa-may drew this incredible picture of me, wearing the crochet scarf she made for me.  I love it so much!


The set of drawers that my grandfather made for my mother, that I repainted blue as a teenager.  I had been holding on to the lamp stand for years without a shade waiting for the perfect thing, then one day I found this at the Surry Hills Markets.  It’s perfect in so many ways.  I’m so glad I waited until I found something I really liked.


On the wall is the gorgeous print entitled ‘making friends’ from the artists APAK.  I purchased it from the lovely Outre Gallery.  A little gift for Joh a few years back.  Just because I love him so.

Happy Birthday Pierre!  Friday the 16th was Pierre’s 30th birthday.  To celebrate, 16 of us headed away to the Hunter Valley for a weekend of sunshine, wine tasting and fun!

Today’s Frock is made from beautiful soft breezy cotton.  I got it a couple of years ago from a lady called Tamea Rice at the Paddington Markets.  It fits pefectly and is really well made.


The print on the dress is actually tiny blue and yellow flowers, very sweet.
