a day at the market | december

A bit of a hot & blustery day for the December Wirrabara Producers Market, but there were still plenty of people out & about, buying up gorgeous local fruit & veg for Christmas.

Our stall looked lovely & colourful - fortunately the wind didn't manage to run away with our cover or stock - & we had some lovely customers, caught up with some friends, were given some lollies by santa & even managed to get in quick enough to come home with some cherries this year.

one summer sunday...

Last weekend I had a stall the Beaumont House Summer Sunday event. Although business was a little slow, it was a lovely day with good company, yummy scones, beautiful music & the gardens are simply gorgeous - so I thought I'd share a few photos I took when I slipped off for a little wander...

a few photos of my stall here + a few more photos on tumblr.

flinders street market | christmas grand bazaar

Our weekend at the Christmas Grand Bazaar was a huge success - in fact the organisers did an amazing job & I'm pretty sure the bazaar was a success for all involved.

We were very happy with our stall set-up, the weather was lovely, the customers were plentiful & there was an enormous selection of interesting stalls to browse. Also, good coffee, lovely food & amazing people...basically a wonderful weekend all round.

the great ocean road | sisters head east

We spent a day travelling from Mt Gambier across the border & along the Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay, stopping at as many of the attractions/scenic lookouts as we felt we had time for.

It was - to say the least - absolutely spectacular. The ocean looked so vast & wild & blue, all crashing waves, tall cliffs & wild winds - the coastline we're used to is much closer & tamer-looking. The drive itself was filled with interesting scenery (winding is an understatement) & when the road veered away from the ocean, the forest & farmland was just a beautiful & spectacular.

We marvelled from high lookout points, descended & ascended lots of steps (luckily they are generally in pretty good condition), had fish & chips on the beach at Pt Campbell (& got splashed), walked on the beach at Loch Ard Gorge & Gibson Steps & took a few photos - more than any other day of the trip.
