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 I have a stall booked for the Surry Hills Christmas Markets.

I’ll be there from 7am (!) with all of my usual Saponify goodies, as well as many, many jars of my delicious  home made jams and relishes.  Do be sure to pop by and say hello if you’re out and about.

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!

I’ve just made this pretty garland to act as signage for my Saponify market stalls.

This Saturday I have a stall at the Reservoir Bazaar at The Winery in Surry Hills.  If you’re in the area make sure you pop by.   It’s a great chance to grab some last minute Christmas gifts, and a fun day out to boot!

I’ll be having a stall at the Reservoir Bazaar Markets this Saturday (20th November).

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!

Today J has the day off work, so we headed out for a late breakfast at Fratelli Paradiso in Potts Point.  Delicious food, as always.  The company wasn’t bad either!

I got plenty of odd looks while posing here, which is strange considering the high percentage of posers that live in our area.  Go figure.

Dress:  I bought this to wear to my friend Kate’s Hen’s night.  It’s quite short, so I like to wear a pair of leggings underneath so as to not shock any sensitive locals.  Purchased from the ever wonderful Zoo Clothing in Surry Hills.  Yes, it’s pretty much the only place I shop for quality dresses now.

Oops!  I woke up this morning and realised that I had forgotten to update yesterday’s frock.  Bad blogger!

I love this dress so much.  It was one of those finds where you can’t quite believe that you’ve found something so cool, so you cling to it possessively until you get to the changing room.  That’s how it is with vintage clothing shopping.  There’s not going to be another one in the back room somewhere, so you have to guard your precious very closely.

Dress:  Bought from the wonderful Zoo Clothing in Surry Hills.  One of my more expensive pieces – I think this may have cost about $65 at the time.  It’s beautifully cut, and I’ve always loved the way the dress is designed with the great collar.  It’s a little creased in this photo, mainly because I couldn’t be bothered getting out the iron.  Just imagine it perfectly pressed.

 

 

So far I’ve raised $400 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation this year, which is just wonderful!  I’ll be rattling the donation bucket at the Mr’s birthday picnic this weekend so hopefully that will increase the overall total.  Yay!

Today the weather was a bit cool, then a bit sunny, then rainy, then cool again.  Which meant that I was alternately under-dressed, over-dressed, rained on, and finally under-dressed.

Spring is a difficult time of the year for frock wearing ladies!

Dress:  From NZ store Ruby, about 4 years old now.  Lovely, soft stretch cotton with a low contrast waist band.  It’s getting pretty thin, so I can probably only get another summer out of this before I have to retire it to at-home-only-wear.
Coat:  I don’t know if this is a coat, or a long cardigan, or a jacket.  It’s short sleeved, and slouchy, and perfect for this time of year.

Yesterday we headed to a friend’s 30th birthday party on their families farm in south west Sydney.  It was beautiful being out of the city for the day – we had such a great time relaxing and hanging out.

Dress:  Vintage, found at Zoo Emporium in Surry Hills.  This is hands down my favourite dress.  I love the pattern on the fabric, the cut of the dress, and the length.  It’s got pockets too – a necessary requirement for any perfect summer dress I think.
Cardigan:  Hand-me-down from my friend Rosa-may.  It was handed-down to her from a friend too.  It’s my new go-to cardigan.  Big and slouchy and a perfect shade of red.  I love it!

I’m 1 week in to my 4 week challenge and I have a confession to make.  This photo is from last night!

I’ve been busily making soap and jam today and haven’t bothered to get my frock on.  Oops!  I am wearing a skirt though, so that kind of counts doesn’t it?  I kind of figure that since I wore two dresses yesterday I could get away with not wearing one today!

Dress:  Vintage, a gift to myself for my 30th birthday.  From Zoo Clothing in Surry Hills.
